''She paints her face to hide her face. Her eyes are deep water. It is not for Geisha to want. It is not for geisha to feel. Geisha is an artist of the floating world. She dances, she sings. She entertains you, whatever you want. The rest is shadows, the rest is secret.''

Some actors are good, nice cinematography, romantic story - but full of historical errors, especially in the costumes, make up and hairstyles - mistakes even me, only a Finnish geisha and kimono enthusiastic like me, notices immediately, and probably every Japanese person. The geishas in this movie not wearing kimonos and traditional wareshinobu and katsura hairstyles accordingly to their position... read more

Rob Marshall's directing debut was 'Chicago' and even though it was a tremendous succes (it won the best picture academy award back then), I thought it was terribly disappointing and a total bore to watch. For his second directing effort, Marshall had once again a high profile project so I was keen to give him another chance. Eventually, it was received with some mixed reviews. There was a lot of ... read more

CheoFuenmayor posted a review 2 years, 1 month ago

“Me pareció interesante que es una película que podría clasificarse como "feminista", pero no promueve ninguna de las ideas tóxicas que maneja el feminismo en la actualidad, ni tampoco victimiza a las mujeres haciendolas parecer inferiores o menos capaces que los hombres. Para ser honesto puede llegar a ser un poco aburrida y me molestó el hecho de que fuese en ingés cuando se hace evidente que la mayoría del reparto no manejaba bien el idioma, pero creo que puede ser muy interesante para la ayoría de las mujeres, mientras que los hombres deben tener cierto amor a las películas para disfrutarla.” read more
