Lady Snowblood (Shurayuki-hime) is caught by the police and sentenced to death for her crimes (in Lady Snowblood I). As she is sent to the gallows she is rescued by the secret police who offer her a deal to assassinate some revolutionaries.
Toshiya Fujita’s “Shura-yuki-hime: Urami Renga” aka. “Lady Snowblood 2: Love Song Of Vengeance” of 1974 is a quite different, but more than decent sequel to Fujita’s blood-soaked and beautiful 1973 gem “Shurayukihime” (aka. “Lady Snowblood”). While the film does not nearly reach the greatness of its superb predecessor, “Love Song Of Vengeance” is yet another original and highly entertaining film that no lover of Japanese Cinema in general, and Chambara and Japanese Exploitation in particular should consider missing. The film sadly cannot compete with its predecessor’s unique style and beauty, but it is still stylish, and furthermore delivers a good story, and, most memorably, the wonderful Meiko Kaji, who comes back with greatness as the eponymous (anti-)heroine.
