1973’s Lady Snowblood is also a revenge tale but told with an unapologetic mixing of styles that don’t necessarily look as though they should go together (and sometimes actually do not), producing a unique visual and tonal experience. [3], The music video for "rockstar" by Post Malone featuring 21 Savage, references scenes from Lady Snowblood.[6].

The film's narrative is told out of chronological order, jumping between present and past events. Lady Snowblood Has Enough style to supplant What it Lacks in Narrative The latter half of the picture includes an additional male character whose purpose is not very clear.

Why not go from there and build momentum organically by sharing young Yuki’s upbringing in chronological order, therefore allowing the audience to digest her development from relatively innocent (if damned) child to shell of a human being hell-bent on killing villains? Yuki grows up to be a strikingly beautiful if eerily pale-looking woman (Meiko Kaji) that traverses late 18th century Japan to hunt and annihilate the four foul characters who took advantage of her family during a time of great national turmoil. Naming the child Yuki from seeing the snow outside, Sayo confided to the inmates who helped deliver the baby how she was brutally raped by three of the four criminals who murdered her husband Tora and their son Shiro a year ago. The film spawned a sequel, Lady Snowblood: Love Song of Vengeance, released in 1974. Lady Snowblood was produced on a relatively low budget and filmed with a minimal length of film (20,000 feet). After all, nobody does it better. It mostly depends on where the camera is positioned rather than how it moves. The film’s gas is essentially its frequently twisted mood communicated via striking cinematography, editing, and makeup.

Additionally a 1977 Hong Kong martial arts film Broken Oath directed by Jeong Chang-hwa and starring Angela Mao in the leading role is also an unofficial remake of Lady Snowblood.

Take for instance the titular assassin’s ghostly allure. Ashio tells Yuki that Gishirō is his father, and had faked his death when he learned of Yuki's mission.

While she managed to stab her captor Shokei Tokuichi to death when the chance presented itself, she was arrested and imprisoned for life.

Yuki, wounded, stumbles outside where she is stabbed by Kobue. In Meiji 15 (1882), the child Yuki undergoes brutal training in sword fighting under the priest Dōkai to become her mother's wrath incarnate.

In 1874, a deathly-ill woman named Sayo gives birth to a baby girl in a women's prison. Ashio learned of Yuki's story from Dōkai who persuaded him to publish it as a means to draw out one of Sayo's tormentors, and the man who murdered Shiro: Kitahama Okono.
