Lady Snowblood

cant' find the time to finish that one, so here it is in all its unfinishness (can I say that ?) that I kinda like anyway.
This my vision of Meiko Kaji as Lady Snowblood (Shurayuki Hime), leaving an endless trail of blood behind her path.

Lady Snowblood is at first a manga by stellar author Kasuo Koike, who also created Crying Freeman and Lone Wolf & Cub. This highly commendable flick, released in 1973, is one of the inspirations for Tarantino's Kill Bill (which doesn't outclass its ancestor). Tarantino also didn't hesitate to steal (some will say popularize) the title song "Shura no hana".
