Synopsis

Brutal, blood-soaked revenge tale based on the 1970s manga series by Kazuo Koike. In 1874, Yuki Kashima (Meiko Kaji) is born to a mother who has suffered violence, rape and the unjust killing of her husband at the hands of a ruthless gang of criminals in the months prior to Yuki's birth. Her mother dies in childbirth, and her dying request is that Yuki be brought up to be a highly trained assassin with one aim in life: to avenge the death of her parents and kill the criminals who destroyed her family. Modern-day directors, and in particular Quentin Tarantino, have cited the techniques and subject matter of this film as a major influence and inspiration for their work.
