Reviews

Low-budget, Japanese exploitation action drama. On her 20th birthday, the beautiful and voluptuous Lilli (Sasa Handa) is informed by her grandmother that she has inherited her family's mystical martial arts technique. During a ceremony, she unexpectedly travels back in time to the 18th century, where she finds herself in a small village under threat from an evil geisha and her henchmen. Joining forces with one of the local lads (Yoichi Matsuda), Lilli takes it upon herself to protect the villagers armed only with her sword - which, oddly, works a lot more efficiently whenever Lilli is bare-breasted.

Format: DVD
A simple enough premise, a girl gets transported on the day of her 20th birthday back in time for a ritual succession in her martial art training, naked as the day she was born, with only a box.

She gets involved in an incident (as you do), and saves a peasant girl from some wacky, evil ninjas (those Japanese eh? Anything for a laugh).

After this, a Seven Samurai scenario comes in - where the girl protects herself and the villagers from a money hungry bandit group led by a mysterious Geisha, who has a simple technique of getting what she wants.

As the title of the film suggests, there is nudity - but there isn't a stripping scene - this is probably a translation convention. Chanbara Breastflash would probably be more appropriate, as there is certainly much concentration on that region of the female anatomy for most of the film - Baywatch eat your heart out!

It lacks the blood of a lot Japanese films around it - and to me, it's aimed at teenagers more than adults, and it is slowly paced, which works to it's detriment.

There are some funny moments though, and the fight scenes, whilst staged and not as spectacular as you might expect, are still well done, and I can't think of many movies which have the heroine and villain performing swordcatching tricks with their boobs!

The end result - juvenile - Check. Japanese offbeat humour - Check. Violence - Yes, but tame compared to films such as Versus, Azumi or other sword blade flashing films that are humourous. Nudity - Duh.

A guilty pleasure for some perhaps, but if blades, babes, and boobs are the right ingredients for a night in with mates, some snacks and a few drinks - there's more than a little fun to be had here.

If it's high drama, or more serious action you want to see, why the hell would you hire this out or buy it in the first place?!

The basic plot of 'Chanbara Striptease' involves Lili who, during her ceremony to celebrate her 20th birthday is transported back to the 18th century to protect a small village from an evil geisha and her gang of ninjas.
The tagline to this film is that Lili has to unleash her pert bosom as they have some kind of magical power although it's never quite mentioned why this is or how it makes her a better swordswoman, personally I would've thought that a sports bra would be handier in such a situation, anyway initially she gets out fought (and out boobed) by the evil geisha but as we all know, good has to overcome evil in the end.
If you liked 'Chanbara Beauty' or the likes of 'Tokyo Gore Police' you'll more than likely enjoy this, it's not going to change your life, you won't set up a website based around how much you love this film although you'll probably find yourself Googling the 3 ladies in the film and being pleasantly surprised in Google Images. (Turn that safe search off).

I have watched a lot of japanese movies in the last few years , so maybe I am getting a bit jaded , but this is tame . Yes there is nudity , but the gimmick of magic breasts is a bit juvanile [even for me]and there is no actual striptease.The movie could have redeemed itself with some good swordplay and bloodshed but it fails there as well.I think this movie was made with the western market in mind , so instead of getting the mayhem and madness that I love in japanese movies of this sort ,the result is a bit PG-13 / 15cert.

A fun premise of girl going back in time and taking on a gang of bandits; villagers (1 woman and half a dozen guys) in desperate need of some one to save them. Overacting, some partial nudity and comedy; colours appear to be washed out, overall an ok addition to the samurai genre - but not essential in any way...

This is a live action manga film with a very comic storyline, a girl is handed down special powers that make her very powerful when she exposes her breasts in a fight, she goes back in time 300 years to help a local village defend itself from evil ninjas led by another woman who possesses breast powers!! Very strange but loads of fun, lots of naked sword fights and close-ups of breasts!! All done in a very comical way with a mix of gore and sex etc. If your big into Asian films like chanbara beauty etc then you will probably find this very amusing! Only runs for just over an hour though unfortunately, theres a silly twist at the end too. No special features on disc.
