Posters and synopsis powered by IMDb

Although there is only brief sight of breast nudity, there are numerous other images of her naked back, legs and stomach which emphasise her profession as a geisha and are sexualised in nature.
Male characters, overcome by a woman's sexual allure, paw at and grope her over her clothing, despite her lack of consent.
Strong violence features beatings, sword-slashings and stabbings, with sight of blood in their aftermath.
There is moderate threat. There are moderate sex references and mild sex scenes. There is moderate bad language ('bitch'), as well as milder terms such as 'bastard' and 'damn'.
