The film is interesting, but with the book he is not comparable. In the book passed all the feeling Chiyo-Sayuri, in the film is the managed. But I liked it!

While watching I forgot breathe after that was a long time in a state of trance. No wonder the film was awarded with the Oscar!
"After all, it is the memoir the Empress and not a Queen, a women of another sort."
The East is a different world filled with the smell of Jasmine and Sakura. It is the world of rice plantations and gurgling streams. This world enchanting temptresses with pale faces and bright red lips, can stop the men with his eyes.
This is an incredible story about the fate of a girl who suffered many trials on their path. But she became a geisha and not just a geisha, and well-known legend, that which all wanted want.
Very high quality and finely filmed. After watching the movie, the East appeared to me quite in a different light. It culture and the story is so interesting and sophisticated, that just not can not capture the spirit.
The plot, on first glance, banal and simple. As always love, friendship and so on. But if you dig deeper, we will see the power of the spirit, envy, rebellion, respect, commitment, kindness, steadfastness, gentleness, prudence, integrity, beauty.
The film was moved to the shivers up the bottom of consciousness.
Sayuri — kind, sincere, sophisticated, tender, airy, like a fragrant blossom, but at the same time, a strong spirit, brave and wise. It became a geisha, but as intended.
Hatsumomo — nasty badass, not intolerant of rivalry. It for best forbid God someone will go to her way or what good will be better! But not despite all this in her heart lives the love, the true hope for the happiness that it and couldn't see!
Mamaa — the embodiment of femininity, tenderness and perseverance. It is certainly admirable, and do you understand how Sayuri with her luck. Mamaa — strict patron and a wise mentor to the most, who needed a little girl living in the void, to turn into person with purpose.
Chairman — the same man who conquered the heart and captivated the mind of the protagonist. This one for which Sayuri has evolved from insecure fearful girl with wonderful eyes the color of rain this elegant, charming, "able to stop with one look" on the woman.
He became the embodiment of courage, honor, tenderness, kindness and sensitivity. The President was the only person offered then little Chiyo and buying her ice cream.
One day she told him, "And you know... All that I did after the meeting on the bridge, I did, to become closer to you"
Finally, I wish to quote the words of the film: "you Cannot say to the sun "Shine brighter", or the rain "less", a geisha can be the man's wife only half, we wife of nightfall, and still, good to see after seeing so much evil, to understand what heard the prayers of girls who had the courage, although it is not aware, is can not be called happiness?"
View this film and I guarantee not sorry!

Every gesture, part of the wardrobe, every word of philosophy, symbolism, allegory!
Mistress, that's who. this geisha. A living work of art, without rights personality (well before). Excellent and beautiful story, excellent actors! Maybe there are many inconsistencies with the real canonical image of the geisha, Hollywood rarely follows the textbook of conformity; can have fallen short of love story of the main character, but after all, the Japanese are very timid. Here, as in Ibsen there's a lot to see in unsaid. After all, in this country breathes with wisdom, thoughts and metaphors.
Subjectively, the film was a success on 99 %! I personally revise it sometimes inspiration.
Say if after reading the book in her there are thoughts that I would like to quote, then this book is nothing needless in this film is Packed with wise and beautiful thoughts.. and again, personally, for me this story again confirmed that the most cherished dreams come true, you only need to sincerely want and working in direction him!
