'First Love' showtimes in London

Important Notice about Showtimes

After six years on the cinema scene, we’re sad to announce that WeLoveCinema will stop delivering showtimes and cease updating from Friday 4 August, 2023.

This wasn’t an easy decision, but we’re incredibly proud of what we achieved in that time, and are grateful for the experiences and opportunities that came our way.

What we think

A likeable and gleefully violent thriller that refuses to descend into the gory depravity that has defined some of Miike's more infamous work, it mashes together genres for a fun - if somewhat shallow - underworld yarn.

What others think

As ever with Miike, the sheer profusion of material, the torrent of wacky creativity, means that there is always something to hold the attention. It’s bizarre and very unwholesome. But weirdly inspired.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
This is a high-energy caper with lots of larger-than-life characters circling to kill, and two innocents at its centre about whose fate and very survival, against all odds, we are made genuinely to care.
Anton Bitel Little White Lies
Many viewers will take it less as a drama than as an assembly of typically bravura Miike set pieces.
