It has Ziyi Zhang in it. For those of you who don't know she's the one from Crouching Tiger, House Of Flying Daggers, Hero, Rush Hour etc...

Plot Summary
In 1929 an impoverished nine-year-old named Chiyo from a fishing village is sold to a geisha house in Kyoto's Gion district and subjected to cruel treatment from the owners and the head geisha Hatsumomo. Her stunning beauty attracts the vindictive jealousy of Hatsumomo, until she is rescued by and taken under the wing of Hatsumomo's bitter rival, Mameha. Under Mameha's mentorship, Chiyo becomes the geisha named Sayuri, trained in all the artistic and social skills a geisha must master in order to survive in her society. As a renowned geisha she enters a society of wealth, privilege, and political intrigue. As World War II looms Japan and the geisha's world are forever changed by the onslaught of history.

Seems a bit weird that a Japanese themed film is being directed by an American.

How do you rate it [the book] so far Murali?

Seen the trailer a few times now and I have to say how boring it looks and hor scary her eyes are. Also if there's no kung-fu **** going down then it's a waste of Ziyi Zhang.

I've seen it too Murali. It's a good film and has a very good story. Zhiyi is quality in it especially as she has to be able to look 15-35, now that has to be rare. Michelle Yeoh was good in it too and was glad to see Ken Watanabe in :D

So if you can't watch a film unless it has things blowing up then simply don't watch it. But if your not an idiot then I recommend it.
