A sweeping romantic epic set in Japan in the years before World War II, a penniless Japanese child is torn from her family to work as a maid in a geisha house.
Memoirs of a Geisha
If you wanted to know what a Geisha truly is this explains the less glamorous side of it. It was a long movie, beautifully done, and rather depressing at parts. This movie brings to light some of the old culture of Japan. I recommend it to anyone who loves the culture and wants to learn more.
