Most of my e-mail alerts nowadays pertaining to the new crime thriller, First Love, all have much to do with critical responses that are nothing short of positive.
That’s just the kind of delightful narrative that makes Well Go USA’s own release of the film all the more pleasant following their acquisition from the summer, and I’ll be sure to turn my own review in soon.
In the meantime, the martial arts action-loaded Hi-YAH network is launching an exclusive GIVEAWAY for a copy of the film’s official poster, signed by the film’s legendary filmmaker himself, Takashi Miike. Sample it below!
The film is the prolific auteur, Takashi Miike, at his most fun and anarchic, a noir-tinged yakuza film blending genres in the story of a young boxer and a call girl, who fall passionately in love while getting innocently caught up in a drug-smuggling scheme over the course of one night in Tokyo.
Miike’s First Love has had an amazing run in 2019 since taking off at its Directors’ Fortnight premiere at Cannes. The film opens in theaters this Friday in select theaters and will stream exclusively on Hi-YAH in 2020!
