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.

I enjoyed this movie even though the date fell asleep during it...that other Geisha was just evil. I can't wait for this to come out on DVD so I can get it. It was very romantic at the end but I think I would have put a different twist on it (i.e. the scene where she is on the cliffs). I'll tell you what I would have done later...
