Yuki's family is nearly wiped out before she is born due to the machinations of a band of criminals. These criminals kidnap and brutalize her mother but leave her alive. Later her mother ends up in prison with only revenge to keep her alive. She creates an instrument for this revenge by purposefully getting pregnant. Though she dies in childbirth, she makes sure that the child will be raised as an assassin to kill the criminals who destroyed her family.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2016: January (30 movies items)

"First viewing - Jan. 10th I'd originally intended to start the year off with this film, but as luck would have it I wasn't able to stay awake through it the first night I tried to watch it. So I shelved it for a time when I could watch it & be more alert for it, which wound up being on this particular Sunday afternoon. Much ado has been made of Lady Snowblood's influence on Kill Bill, and while it's definitely there I feel like Tarantino did plenty to differentiate his film(s) from this one. A"

"July.7thA very cool revenge tale with highly stylised scenes of violence. Clearly a big influence on Tarantino's Kill Bill. There were so many shots that are directly referenced by Tarantino too."

"03.02.2015 Uusintakatselua taas kerran, koska edellisestä kerrasta on kulunut pitkä aika. Lapsi synnytetään kostamaan, verta suihkuaa ja Meiko on vaan pirun ihana. Tunnarikin on hyvin hienoa kuunneltavaa."

"This is a very fun, energetic action movie. I like seeing insanely bright blood fly around so this is straight up my alley. Now I don't necessarily appreciate the narrator or the idiotic melodrama towards the end (the reveal about a certain father is so bad), but the way this film is built and the way it moves forward constantly is really admirable, as I'm so used to these trashy 70s sword n gore -flicks to be nothing but people walking around a house for thirty minutes only to be followed by tw"

"My favorite revenge origin story: Sayo is raped and her family destroyed by a band of 4 criminals. Sayo is later sent to prison where she seduces a guard in order to create her only possible instrument for revenge, a daughter. Sayo dies during childbirth but this new child, Yuki, born in prison, is raised as an assassin so that she may one day seek vengeance on the four thugs that ruined her mother's life! She IS Lady Snowblood! AHHHHHH YEAHHHHHHH! "

"Melkein killbillimpi kuin Tarantinon kunnianosoitus itse. "Kauniisti" kuvattu kostotarina on jaotettu lukuineen helvetin toimivaksi ja soundtrack on mielenkiintoinen tunnelmallisine lauluineen ja groteskisti kokonaisuuteen istuvine jazzeineen. Ja veri roiskuu, mutta hienosti roiskuukin! Ainoastaan loppua venytetään aivan liiaksi, minkä vuoksi Lady Verilumi käy kymmenennen "ratkaisun" koittaessa jo suoraan sanottuna harmillisen itseääntoistavaksi."
