Kill Bill Copied "Lady Snowblood"

"I steal from every movie ever made." Quentin Tarantino.

According to Meiko Kaji, Tarantino made the cast and crew of Kill Bill watch DVDs of Lady Snowblood during filming breaks.

Lady Snowblood (修羅雪姫) is a 1973 Japanese action thriller film directed by Toshiya Fujita starring Meiko Kaji.
It is based on the manga series of the same name, recounting the tale of Yuki, a woman who seeks vengeance upon three people who raped her mother and killed her father and brother.

Quentin Tarantino heavily used this film as an inspiration to Kill Bill. Using the same plot, style, design, setting, characters, and moral. Even during breaks from shooting, Tarantino would even tell his cast and crew to watch "Lady Snow Blood."
