Lala's movie review - Memoirs of a Geisha

Memoirs of a Geisha was awesome!!! the acting was fantastic.....the scenery amazing and the story moving....you won't be disappointed with this story of love turmoil and finding your inner strength.

Ziyi Zhang was the main character and was amazing....she is actually Chinese playing a Japanese girl sold into the world of Geisha's in the late 1930's before the war broke out......

Li Gong played her adversary in the movie and both J and I think she should have gotten an Oscar nomination....she was brilliant. Li Gong is also Chinese and I know I recognize her from other movies....she was SO good in this movie. Both ladies are also gorgeous!!

I would recommend this movie to anyone and want to buy it....I could watch it over and over.....really really that good.....watch it and let me know what you think!!

I LOVED that movie!! It was so well done and well acted. I loved the scenery of course... I have a small fondness for all things Japanese. It was very moving.

Wow - I really wasn't considering watching that movie, but maybe I'll have to now.

Good reviews -

My wife and I just saw the movie and liked it very much. Afterwards and then thinking about it....I don't know if it's just me, but isn't a little creepy that the "chairman" is so struck by a 9 year-old girl that he puts her on the path to becoming a Geisha for his benefit?
As a father, that scared me.

hey big tony, thanks for the comment....I thought about that part too but then I remembered when she went to follow her rival one night and she was evesdropping outside and the "chairman" opened the door and she quickly ran away...I thought oh maybe he recognized her eyes - cuz everyone noticed her big eyes - and remembered it was that little girl and decided to help her after all.....he also mentioned that he wanted his friend to be happy and didn't think to come between his friend and her too....so...I don't know but I am hoping I am right cuz otherwise....that is creepy if that was true..
