About the Movie

"... a visually stunning adaptation of Arthur Golden's best-selling novel." (Barry Caine, Oakland Tribune) The director of Chicago, Rob Marshall, transports us into a mysterious and exotic world that casts a potent spell. A Cinderella story like no other, Memoirs of a Geisha stars Ziyi Zhang, Ken Watanabe, Michelle Yeoh and Gong Li. "Gorgeously photographed, meticulously directed and hypnotically acted. Memoirs of a Geisha is luxurious, ethereal and intoxicating. It will leave you breathless." (Rex Reed, New York Observer)

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Trying too hard to grab our attention, [Marshall] loses it. The art of the geisha prizes subtlety, stillness, grace. Why doesn't this movie? – David Ansen, Newsweek, Mar 13, 2018

Rotten: Golden's straightforwardly involving prose, while no great shakes, has been replaced by an extremely fussy affair that is, in effect, its own silk-wrapped pictorial novelization. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Its commercial compromises cripple it as a movie. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Nov 24, 2011

Rotten: Memoirs of a Geisha is everything you'd expect it to be: beautiful, mesmerizing, tasteful, Japanese. It's just not very hot. – Stephen Hunter, Washington Post, Jul 16, 2008

Customer Reviews Awe-inspiring Movie

This is by far one of the best movies I have ever seen. The setting, characters, and the music revolving the story fit so well together!! The movie catches the audience's attention right from the beginning!! A story of hate, and the will and power of True Love come together in this powerful movie.


One of my favorite movies! Great love story behind it!


this was a sad but moving movie you should really buy it.
