It's coming

The much awaited blockbuster 'Memoirs of a Geisha' is finally coming out soon next month.


Though I've not read the novel of the same title by Arthur Golden, which sold millions worldwide, I have however read its rebuttal novel 'Geisha of Gion' by the famous geisha Mineko Iwasaki who decided to break the tradition of the culture, i.e. by telling the world about geisha's secretly guarded world.

She did it simply to counter what she regarded as inaccurate and defamatory piece by Arthur in his novel, which was indeed based on Mineko's experience. On top of that, she was actually furious when Arthur put her name in his book when in her understanding, she agreed to be interviewed by him as long as everything is anonymous.... and indeed sued the writer and his publisher. The case was settled out of court.

Anyway, the movie trailer is > here
