During a crazy night in Tokyo, down on his luck boxer Leo reunites with his old sweetheart Monica, who is caught up in a drug-smuggling operation. Before they know it, the two of them are on the run from a corrupt cop, a one-armed assassin, an unkillable femme fatale and a particularly incompetent gangster. Proving that he’s still on top of his game after more than a hundred films, Takashi Miike delivers a stylish, violent and outrageously entertaining action comedy. FIRST LOVE is the Japanese director’s best and most accessible movie in years.
