Based on the highly acclaimed book, the film sticks pretty much to it throughout. Hightened with a new score by John Williams, the movie was absolutely wonderful!

The story centers around a young girl sold into a geisha house in the 1930’s . The movie follows her life and the one love which gave her the strength to endure and survive all that was thrown in her path.

An American film about Japan, staring, strangely enough, some top Chinesse actresses, it is still totally Japanese. A wonderfully excecuted tale! ****!!!
