6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER on June 15 2006
Format: DVD
As the film begins, young Chiyo (Suzuka Ohgo) and her sister and sold by their poor parents to be servant girls in a geisha house far away. They are separated, and Chiyo's life is filled with work, punishment, and loneliness, until the day she meets the Chairman (Ken Watanabe). The handsome businessman is kind to the little girl, and from that moment she vows to become a geisha so she can see him again. With the help of her mentor (Michelle Yeoh), she becomes the most celebrated geisha in the city. And then WWII changes everything.

I really enjoyed everything about "Memoirs." The costumes and scenery are simply exquisite, the acting is excellent, and the script is powerful and touching. The story contrasts the harsh life of little Chiyo with the graceful elegance of the geishas, and it's such a visual feast that it was hard to leave the theatre and not see any kimonos. The best scenes were those with Ken Watanabe, whose confidence and charisma are very appealing. All of the actors are very good and I really cared about the characters. Heartily recommended for its story and breathtaking beauty.

This movie is just, wow! I had this movie in DVD, but wanted it in BluRay for the heck of having a better image and sound.
The story is just amazing, the actors are marvelous and it's just beautiful.
I guess I just need to read the book.
You should buy it.

The cinematography is phenomenal and really gives a glimpse in to a world we know little about. We will watch it again.

Excellent delivery time, beautiful movie and storyline. We had the regular DVD but wanted the blu ray because the scenery and colours are so vibrant it warrants being seen in HD on a big screen. We are very pleased with this item.

Format: DVD
Three movies won three Oscars this year and one of those three was "Memoirs of a Geisha." These were for the Art Direction by art director John Myrhe and set decorator Gretchen Rau, Dion Beebe's Cinematography, and Colleen Atwood's Costume Design. Those particular awards should be sufficient to tell you that this is a gorgeous looking film, but once you see it you may well come to the conclusion that the style of the film is its most substantive part. There is great beauty here, to be sure, but not the soul that would make it a great film.

I have not read Arthur Golden's best-selling novel, but I am aware that those who have are not simply complaining that the book is better (a constant complaint applicable to almost all literature adapted to the screen), but saying that the script by Robin Swicord ("Practical Magic") has changed the novel into something inferior. Obviously, I cannot speak to that, but I can comment on why this 2005 film proves to be less than satisfactory taken on its own terms.

Young Chiyo (Suzuka Ohgo) and her sister are taken from their farming village and sold to a geisha house run by Mother (Kaori Momoi). Chiyo ends up a possible candidate for becoming a geisha, although she has not idea what that means, while her sister, Satsu (Samantha Futerman) is immediately forced to work as a prostitute. The geisha of the house, Hatsuomo (Li Gong), takes exception to the young girl and threatens to crush her. But when she grows up, Chiyo (Ziyi Zhang), begins her training in earnest and is given the geisha name Sayuri, and is taken under the wing of the great geisha Mameha (Michelle Yeoh).
