A young boxer crosses the path of a young prostitute who’s a drug addict. Together, they will have to confront bent cops, psychopathic yakuzas and pitiless Chinese assassins.

After three years of making TV series for 3 to 6-year-old girls (Magical × Heroine Magimajo Pures) and several commissioned films, Takashi Miike returns to fundamentals in his 103rd feature: First Love is a real declaration of love aimed at his fans by a director with a passion for movie-making. An orgasmic explosion that plays with codes and genres to redefine the yakuza film, or indeed cinema itself.
