Memoirs of a Geisha is a great film. I watched it when I was fairly young, and it really made me look at my life differently. It showed how difficult others' lives were, and how they were in worst situations. It also was a movie about perserverence and reaching your dream. It is centered around the life of a girl named Chiyo. When she was young, she was sold, by her parents, to a geisha house, where she spends most of her childhood training to become a geisha. She overcomes several challenges, the main one being the competition. During this period of time, she meets a man on the street. She was there cleaning when he came up and gave her money to buy a treat, which she relished, as she had to work hard every day. She wanted to meet him again, and trained extremely hard just to be able to work for him. Her hard work eventually pays off, and she meets the man she loved for so long. This was really an excellent movie. The sound quality was great, the video quality was exceptional, and the acting was very, very believable. I would highly recommend watching this movie.
