Challenged by a new student, tutor and theorist Galileo co-opts emerging telescope technology and discovers irrefutable proof of the heretical notion that the earth is not the center of the universe. But in a rigid society ruled by an uneasy alliance of aristocracy and clergy already undermined by the Plague and the Reformation, science is a threat and enlightenment is a luxury. Faced with either death at the hands of the Inquisition or recantation to a hypocritical but all-powerful Papacy, Galileo must choose between his own life and the restless scientific curiosity that he has spurned family, friends, and wealth to pursue.

Tans D (de) wrote: There were three different acts to this movie. The first first was incredibly boring. The second was hilarious and very fun! And the third was too ridiculous to even be entertaining. There were some good deaths, and even some creepy moments, but overall it was nothing special or even good.

Peter F (ru) wrote: As an obvious influence for Kill Bill in both concept and aesthetic, Lady Snowblood has aged very well and remains one of the better revenge thrillers of its era. Told in a non-linear structure (that even sneaks in some historical commentary on Meiji era Japan), the film is elusive even at its most gory. Speaking of which, the film also houses some truly balletic swordplay, in a style that John Woo would incorporate into shoot-em-ups in the next decade. Call it the art house version of I Spit on Your Grave if you will, but it's quite a bit better than that.
