A beautiful woman is actually an instrument of violent revenge in this blood-spattered action story from Japan. In ancient Japan, people live side-by-side with mechanical human replicas, created by rogue inventors, which have suddenly and dangerously gone mad, leaving a remarkable trail of carnage in their wake. Desperate to avenge the killings and restore order, one of the inventors creates an especially powerful robot from the remains of a beautiful princess, who was murdered along with her friends by one of the androids. The mechanically enhanced princess (Aino Kishi) is equipped with eleven deadly weapons, and she's sent out to do battle alongside a human warrior who has a musical instrument so loud it can be used to destroy his enemies. Samurai Purinsesu: Gedo-hime (aka Samurai Princess) was the first theatrical feature for director and screenwriter Kengo Kaji; the cast includes two leading stars of the Japanese adult video industry, Aino Kishi and Mihiro Taniguchi. The film received its North American premiere at the 2009 New York Asian Film Festival.
