The Bride wakens from a four-year coma. The child she carried in her womb is gone. Now she must wreak vengeance on the team of assassins who betrayed her - a team she was once part of.
According to Uma Thurman, Quentin had her watch three movies in preparation for this film: John Woo's The Killer (1989), Coffy (1973) (Starring Jackie Brown (1997) star Pam Grier), and Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars (1964).
Do you find me sadistic? You know, I bet I could fry an egg on your head right now, if I wanted to. You know, Kiddo, I'd like to believe that you're aware enough even now to know that there's nothing sadistic in my actions. Well, maybe towards those...
When The Bride first wakes up from her coma, she immediately knows that four years has passed without checking the date. On waking, she looked at her palms, possibly seeing the change in her lifeline.
The opening credits do not include a writer or director but include the names of producers, casting directors, etc. The writer/director credit appears at the end of the film.
