“Sometimes, awful things have their own kind of beauty.” — A Single Man
Memoirs of a Geisha is 2005 film adaptation of the novel by Arthur Golden, published in 1997. The novel, told in first person perspective, tells the fictional story of a geisha working in Kyoto, Japan before and after WWII. It contains many Japanese terms for aspects of the geisha culture, occasionally using the Kyoto counterparts.
Last week, went to a friend’s house and we watched the movie. All the graceful dancing and ravishing geisha costumes look really fascinating and exquisite to me. I only hate that Chiyo’s romantic interest, the chairman, is too old for her, like when they’re together it’s just a father and daughter relationship we have there.
Btw, Hatsumomo’s the prettiest for me, though she’s an antagonist.
On a different note, i’m just staying home for the weekend even if my friends called me to hang out. Damn, lazy person. Got used to a lazy lifestyle.
