Memoirs of a Geisha

 

 

CNN Says 
Dion Beebe's lush cinematography, John Myhre's stunning production design, Colleen Atwood's brilliant costumes, John Williams' stirring score and a superb international cast can't take away the fact that the film adaptation of Arthur Golden's best-selling novel, "Memoirs of a Geisha," falls somewhere between a "Cinderella" fable and a really good episode of "Knots Landing."  Which is to say, it doesn't do the richly detailed novel justice.

Salon's Take
Ah, the Christmas movie season. What better time for Hollywood to serve up a big prestige picture designed to open our eyes to the quaint cultures of other lands? This year: All aboard the Orient Express for "Memoirs of a Geisha"! This is a very serious, very long, very pretty picture about the life of a geisha in pre-World War II Japan, starring three of the biggest actresses in the world -- they happen to be from Hong Kong and Malaysia, but let's not get too hung up on the details.

 

"Memoirs of a Geisha is worthwhile on many levels, although it lacks the depth of feeling that would have elevated it from a good movie to a romance for the ages."   -   James Berardinelli
