• The Violent Beauty of Lady Snowblood

    32K views 5 months ago
    Toshiya Fujita’s chanbara cult classics LADY SNOWBLOOD and LADY SNOWBLOOD: LOVE SONG OF VENGEANCE, now out on Blu-ray and DVD, remain two of the most influential works of their genre. Set in turn-of-the-twentieth-century-Japan and released in the mid-1970s, the revenge saga centers on a young sword-fighting woman who has been raised from birth to avenge the harrowing murders of her family. This clip features the film’s star Meiko Kaji in a scene from LOVE SONG OF VENGEANCE that highlights the films' dazzlingly choreographed combination of visual beauty and unflinching ferocity.
