A Need For Love
Memoirs of a Geisha.
What a beautifully hopeful movie.
It's about emptiness, sadness, loss, dreams, pride and love. If you haven't seen this movie you should.
I am the kind of person who loves to go to the movies alone. I escape in them and am able to live inside of the main character for the duration of the film. This was quite a journey.
If I had to be poetic in my description of this film I would say:
It's the story of a seedling that blooms under circumstances that normally would be detrimental to the growth of a prized flower. Incidences of toxic manure thrown until covering the flower to near emotional death are thwarthed by the nourishment of the sky's tears . The flower does prevail through hardships and darkness to blossom through the tainted manure into the epitomy of it's species.
