First Love (2019) Blu-ray: A violent, stylistic yakuza film

Well Go USA is releasing Director Takashi Miike’s visually stunning yakuza film, First Love (2019) on a Blu-ray/DVD combo. Stars Becky, Sakurako Konishi.

First Love marks the fourth collaboration between Academy Award® winning producer Jeremy Thomas (The Last Emperor) and Takashi Miike (Blade Of The Immortal, Hara-Kiri, 13 Assassins). The film is the prolific auteur 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.

First Love stars Masataka Kubota (13 Assassins, Gintama 2: Rules Are Made to Be Broken, Tokyo Ghoul), Nao Omori (Ichi The Killer), Shota Sometani (Samurai Marathon) and newcomer Sakurako Konishi.

Release date: February 11, 2020
