Thank you all :)
“Memoirs of a Geisha” by Rob Marshall (the movie) seems intresting. I was introduced to the Geisha culture by my many Japanese friends who are now in every part of the world except,
But, I cant figure out why on earth is a Chinese actress playing the lead role of a Japanese!?!?!
I kid you not! It gets better, the lead actress Michelle Yeoh (oh.. how I had a huge crush on her when I was 20) is Malaysian!
I am happy that the rest of the cast comprised of a significant (no I have not done the stats on this one) number of “real” Japanese. But I find, it an insult to the “Geisha” and their culture, that the roles be played by anyone other than them!
Oh well… should I watch the movie?
