First Love trailer: Takashi Miike’s new film is just as crazy as ever

When you want batshit crazy, there’s only one director to call. Takashi Miike has made a name for himself as an exciting auteur ready to push the limits of on-screen violence and blend together a mix of styles and tones only a few can make work. His latest, First Love, appeared at Cannes a few months back and was mostly well received. Miike will always divide opinion and this looks to be no different. Watch the trailer for First Love above to see what you think.

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 is directing a cast including Masataka Kubota, Shôta Sometani, and Nao Ohmori. 

First Love arrives in US cinemas September 27. No UK date has been set yet but we hope it will make it over early next year.
