A.k.a. Bestien der Samurei, Die Nackten und die Bestien, The Naked Seven, The Sengoku Rock: Female Warriors, and many more titles. The German
DVD we watched was entitled Bestien der Samurai,
but at one point or another it was released in the land of sausage and beer as Die Satansweiber aus Fernost
("She-Devils of the Far East"),
a title notable only for the attempt to link the Japanese flick by title to
Russ Meyer's classic roughie, Faster,
Pussycat, Kill! Kill! (1966 / trailer,
Satana), which in Germany was given the title Die Satansweiber von Tittenfield ("She-Devils from Titsfield").
online sources, the original version of the movie is 120 minutes long; the cut
we saw was a mere 75 mins, which means a lot was cut. (Some
cut scenes.) As far as we can tell, the whole plot aspect mentioned
elsewhere about how our group of seven women coming to the assistance of a
village* got jettisoned, for the
film we watched began with the seven gals watching and then goading the last
two survivors of a battle, each from the opposing side, to battle to the death.
And while our DVD claims they want to enter the bordello business and thus must
cross swords with a samurai out to stop them, in the film itself they enter a
bordello to have fun and because their leader, Eno (Mari
Tanaka), is in love with the self-obsessed guy who runs it, Taro Tenma (Kenji
Kaji), a dude with a hilarious haircut and enough testosterone to share. Out of love, she gets her gals to steal a shipment of
guns, which results in the local overlord setting out to raping and killing the
often naked seven; those his men fail to kill end up on the wrong side of Taro and
his men when, hearing that Taro has decided to NOT start a revolt but to sell
the guns back to the local overlord instead, they steal the guns back again.
