Have you seen Memoirs of a Geisha?

I was a sophomore in high school when it came out. I lied to my mom about a school project and went to the theater after school with a friend. I remember being so moved by music and artistry in the trailer. I was not disappointed when I actually saw the movie. It was... so gorgeous- a real feast for the eyes, the heart. It ended up winning three Oscars for art direction, cinematography, and costume design... so well-deserved. Also, the soundtrack is hauntingly beautiful.

One of my favorite scenes [has spoilers]:

  • I liked the movie a lot. It explores a setting that isn't explored much in cinema. Post Meiji, pre-WW II Japan.

    Let's face it. Most flicks in America set in Japan are either WW II or samurai/martial arts flicks. This was neither.

    And the music was great.

    As much as I liked the movie, my wife LOOOOOOOOOOVED that movie. LOOOOOOOOOOVED the music. LOOOOOOOOOOVED the art design. LOOOOOOOOOVED the costumes. LOOOOOOOVED the characters. LOOOOOOOOOVED the story. I believe it was her all time favorite.

  • Yes, although it’s a Westernized view of geishas. For real life, the novel Yukiguni (Snow Country) which I think has also been made into a film.

  • I remember it winning awards.

    But...

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen it.

    Would I like it or just feel despair?

  • Don't get mad at me for asking this, but is this movie about how men are bad? Is it one of those "men-are-bad" movies?

  • No, but I did eat the first page of the book once... was pretty boring tasting. Needed some flavouring... maybe a cake underneath?

  • I saw the movie - it wasn't bad - very moving in the beginning - but a little depressing in plot.

  • Yes, It's make me feel sorry about being a woman. That we do celebrations about woman's right by doing this to influence people to work or aid.
