First love

Forced to quit boxing after the discovery of a tumor that leaves him very little time to live, Leo meets Monica, a junkie prostitute, whom he will help, leading to unforeseen consequences...

Still very prolific, Takashi Miike (Audition, Visitor Q, Yakuza apocalypse, 13 Assassins) is back with a new insanity produced by Englishman Jeremy Thomas. Very inspired, the japanese troublemaker, behind this grotesque farce bashing japanese society and its flaws (the world of yakuzas, growing xenophobia), delivers a touching love story between two losers amidst a tsunami of violence.
