Memoirs of a Geisha… needs to be forgotten!
My sister, myself and a good friend of ours went to the movies some time ago to watch Memoirs of a Geisha (IMDB link). I thought it would be a good foreign film, and being Japanese, I thought there would be some Kung Fu or something! Well, bummer… 😦
The movie is all romance and such. It wasn’t my flavour, but I was able to appreciate what the movie was about. I’ve never really understood what Geisha were until watching this film (except for the documentaries on TLC and The Discovery Channel!). The story was easy to follow and even though there was a “fairy-tale” ending, it was sad. For a 2hr 16min movie it seemed much longer.
‘Memoirs of a Geisha’ would definitely be something that your girlfriend may want to watch, but the guys may starve from lack of “adrenaline pumping action”.
