reminds me - where was it set - OUTSIDE JAPAN deshou?
「さゆり」・「Memoirs of a Geisha」の映画、見ないでください。
Its a terrible movie that portrays traditional Geisha in the wrong light. The movie concentrates on only one part of the book - the Mizuagi - but forgot alot of the rest of the movie, making Geisha's look like prostitutes. 友達と一緒に見に行った。映画の終わったら、友達は「She wore bad shoes didnt she.」って。ほかの友達は「Her life wasnt bad because her family sold her, or she was separated from her sister, or made to live a life she didnt want, or because she was a prostitute, no, because she had bad shoes!! haha!!」じょうだんといいました。でも、ちょっとまって。or because she was a prostituteっていうじゃない？さゆりはげいしゃでした。Sayuri wasnt a prostitute, and if you read the book, you'll see how her life was so much better than that of her sisters, who was a prostitute because Geisha houses didnt think she was GOOD ENOUGH to be a Geisha.
Geisha are entertainers. Not prostitutes. When you see photos of Japan, or tourist brochures, etc, what do they show? Temples? neon lights? geishas? If Geishas were prostitutes, do you really think that Japan would broadcast it - Come to Japan - the land where Prostitutes once flourished - Dont think so. Shocks me to think that Ken Watanabe and the couple of other Japanese stars agreed to be in it...
Memoirs of a Geisha.
Written by a foriegner
Became a best seller outside Japan
Made into a movie by foreigners
The cast? Foriegners.
The target audience? Foriegners.
And this is a movie thats supposed to 'capture the mood of the orient'.
If you do waste your money on it, dont expect anything authentic.
