Memoirs Of A Geisha (Netflix Streaming):

Nitta Sayuri reveals how she transcended her fishing-village roots and became one of Japan’s most celebrated geisha.

Big fan of Ziyi Zhang, and much of the rest of the cast. It was one of those movies that I had forgotten about, and then wondered if I’d like it. Gave it a whirl, and I really liked it. As with much of Asian cinema, it’s told almost in a poetic form. It gets to the point in a roundabout way, very artistic. The simplest of points is told in an epic fashion, but the most complex are laid out in a straight-forward fashion, though you might not realize this.

Definitely recommend.
