Editorial Reviews

A young woman (Meiko Kaji), trained from childhood as an assassin and hell-bent on revenge for her father s murder and her mother s rape, hacks and slashes her way to gory satisfaction. Rampant with inventive violence and spectacularly choreographed swordplay, Toshiya Fujita s pair of influential cult classics Lady Snowblood and Lady Snowblood: Love Song of Vengeance, set in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Japan, respectively, are bloody, beautiful extravaganzas composed of one elegant widescreen composition after another. The first Lady Snowblood was a major inspiration for Quentin Tarantino s Kill Bill saga, and both of Fujita s films remain cornerstones of Asian action cinema.
