Memoirs of a Geisha

Last night, I watched a short television programme on the making of Memoirs of a Geisha and I have to say that it will definitely be a movie to go and watch.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Arthur Golden's book several years ago (my mother gave me a copy of the book) and I then followed it up with
Geisha written by Liza Dalby, who was the only non-Japanese woman ever to become an actual geisha, and her book was endorsed by Arthur Golden.

I was pleased that Rob Marshall, who last directed the very successful "Chicago" used an all-Asian cast, and from the reviews I have read, it stays very true to the book, something which so many movies do not (and cannot), these days. Both the book and the movie provide a sumptuous and absorbing portrayal of a lost and peculiar world. Shimmering silk and velvet shadows suggest a way of life that is as foreboding as it is seductive.

I sincerely hope this movie will enjoy success at the UK Box Office!!



Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

Reviews that I've read so far have been a little mixed, it seems to be the kind of move that provokes a response which can't be a bad thing!
