In the 1920s, 9-year-old Chiyo gets sold to a geisha house. There, she is forced into servitude, receiving nothing in return until the house's ruling hierarchy determines if she is of high enough quality to service the clientele -- men who visit and pay for conversation, dance and song. After rigorous years of training, Chiyo becomes Sayuri, a geisha of incredible beauty and influence. Life is good for Sayuri, but World War II is about to disrupt the peace.Written by
Took a mainstream book full of falsehoods and fantasy, which is fine after all it is fiction, changed it for the worse, cast a bunch of Chinese actresses and put them in a kimono and sold to Western audiences as Japanese!!!!! Voila millions of people now feel they know Japanese culture and admire it. Shame on all the Chinese pretending they are Japanese. I guess they have no right to complain about racism now.
The scene where the child is crying is crowded with half a dozen Chinese actors and actresses.
Come to think of it is no different than all the Chinese sushi restaurants.
