Beautifully shot and compelling - Memoirs of a Geisha review by CP Customer

We are huge fans of films like 'Flying Daggers', due to the stunning cinematography and great acting. 'Memoirs' is in a similar mould, in terms of these, although it is an absorbing drama rather than an action film. The story of one girl's rise to the top in her profession is absolutely fascinating as is the portrayal of 1930's and 40's Japan. If you are put off foreign language films you will find this one easier, as it is in English. Definitely one to watch again and again.

Don't believe the critics! - Memoirs of a Geisha review by CP Customer

Well every review Ive heard of this slated it - and its not bad at all. Its perhaps slightly light on conveying the book's horrors of Chiyo's upbringing in the geisha houses - but its still good. It would be hard to ever do justice to the book, but it has a good crack and the story remains.

Definitely give it a go.
