Mandatory viewing for all KILL BILL fans. Meiko Kaji is a heartstopping beauty with big, expressive eyes that are suitably haunted-looking for the character she portrays.

Brian Mckaye, FilmCritic.com

Lady Snowblood only half-heartedly revels in its heroine's bloody revenge, while focusing just as much on the tragedy of her circumstances and the absurdity of her vengeful fate.

Anton Bitel, Little White Lies

Blood sprays, limbs fall, bodies are chopped in half -- business as usual in this moderately diverting feudal Japanese revenge story, enlivened by peculiar plot twists and offbeat cinematic flourishes that greatly influenced Quentin Tarantino.

TV Guide

LADY SNOWBLOOD
Director: 
Toshiya Fujita
Country: 
Japan
Year: 
1973
Runtime: 
97 minutes

Gory revenge is raised to the level of visual poetry in Toshiya Fujita’s stunning Lady Snowblood. 

A major inspiration for Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill saga, this endlessly inventive film, set in late nineteenth-century Japan, charts the single-minded path of vengeance taken by a young woman (Meiko Kaji) whose parents were the unfortunate victims of a gang of brutal criminals.

Fujita creates a wildly entertaining action film of remarkable craft, an effortless balancing act between beauty and violence.
