“Easily the best supernatural comedy since What We Do in the Shadows.” – Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects

Rose, a sweet, lonely driving instructor in rural Ireland, is gifted with supernatural abilities. Rose has a love/hate relationship with her ‘talents’ & tries to ignore the constant spirit related requests from locals - to exorcise possessed rubbish bins or haunted gravel. But! Christian Winter, a washed up, one-hit-wonder rock star, has made a pact with the devil for a return to greatness! He puts a spell on a local teenager- making her levitate. Her terrified father, Martin Martin, asks Rose to help save his daughter. Rose has to overcome the fear of her supernatural gift & work with Martin to save the girl, get the guy and be home in time for a light snack...maybe a yogurt or something...

FIRST LOVE

"The romance in First Love (Hatsukoi) is just one ingredient in an exhilarating cocktail of bloodbath violence and tar-black humour that will be catnip to Midnight Madness programmers and Miike devotees. It is all so relentlessly, outrageously entertaining that it could represent one of the prolific Miike’s most commercial propositions in some time." - Alan Hunter, Screen Daily

The film is the prolific auteur, Takashi Miike (Ichi the Killer, Audition) 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.
