First Love

Ottawa Premiere the Week of October 25th!

A young boxer and a call girl get caught up in a drug-smuggling scheme over the course of one night in Tokyo.
Japanese with English subtitles.

From legendary 2x Fantasia Film Festival, 2x Rotterdam International Film Festival, Tokyo International Film Festival, and Venice Film Festival award winning director Takashi Miike!

“riotously entertaining…an exhilarating cocktail of bloodbath violence and tar-black humour that will be catnip to Midnight Madness programmers and Miike devotees. It is all so relentlessly, outrageously entertaining” (Screen Daily)

“action sequences, which are cut and choreographed with remarkable precision…hard-boiled and soft-hearted…remarkable for renewing once again the apparently infinitely renewable resource that is Miike‚Äôs filmmaking energy.” (Variety)
