Shurayukihime

Toshiya Fujita Japan, 1973

Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Lady Snowblood

This is a beautifully shot, poetic action samurai movie about a female assassin bent on revenge. It is also glorious violent like many Japanese films with blood spurting from throats and hearts soaking into the cold white snow.
