Memoirs of a Geisha

Everytime I watch Memoirs of a Geisha, I'm always filled with so much emotions. I love such tragic stories where the characters are caught between doing what's right and what they want so badly.

Visuals were stunning. I can live off cinematography for quite a bit during a movie.

Chiyo/Sayuri I feel for, maybe because I'm at that coming of age where I'm learning what transition is about.

Mameha looking all elegant and regal. Need her hair. And height.

Hatsumomo I love. Both the character and Gong Li. The character was complex with serious issues. Gong li has that skill to wield so much power with just one glance. I love her and secretly want to be her. Minus the issues. Her beauty is surreal.

She dances, she sings. She entertains you, whatever you want. The rest is shadows, the rest is secret.

Two steps back

I want to fall in love with you again
But I would be a fool to allow myself
