I am pondering whether or not to go see it. I don't belive its a chick flick however looks quite serious.

I imagine i'll just wait for it to come out on dvd and then rent it. I havn't seen it but i don't like the fact that its in English and many of the main the charchters are played by chinese when they're supposed to be Japanese, guess that explains why its in English.

The book on which the film is based was recieved very poorly in Japan and I'm led to belive the reaction has been the same with the movie (if its even out there yet) although the western press have given it good write ups. We shall see.

yeah i get your point, but i was watching something on tv, one of the actresses was having a interview with this morning show called GMTV,she said that if japan didnt want that film to be released she believed it wouldnt have been, plus im thinking that instead of looking at the negative side of it.....we should see what a beautiful story it is smile.gif but maybe im being kinda closed minded about it tounge.gif

You're right, it does indeed look like a very interesting story. I'm fascinated by traditional Japan and its culture (i get kicks out of reading classic Japanese literature!)

Also it does appear to be a 'well-made' film, filmed well, and don't get me wrong the actresses they have shosen are pretty good actresses and I am a fan of their other films.

 

 

but maybe im being kinda closed minded about it 

not at all wink.gif you could easily say the same about myself!

OH NO

I read the book (keep that quiet) and it was not bad. Ill probably watch it when it goes to dvd, Geishas are pretty interesting characters, although I will admit I did think they were prostitutes before it.

not to much i prefer live action but some of the classic Anime films like Akira and Ghost in the Shell are pretty damn neat.

A common misconception. The whole premise of Geishas is very interesting. i havn't read the book yet although its sitting in my too read pile.

I believe many of em still do auction off their virginities and such, and, well when you see the film you will see that its can be a pretty tough life.

 

 

Real interesting tho, all the traditional ways of making and serving tea etc were good to read about. You cant beat a good cup of tea.

I wanted to see this movie, but I wasn't going to go to theaters to see it. Until I promised my gf that we would. We ended up going to watch it, and I have to say, it was a very good movie. I ended up being interested throughout the whole thing and my overall impressions of it was that it was very well done and a must see for anyone who enjoys more then just action in a movie.
