Memoirs Of A Geisha

From old Japan
comes a tale of
of true love...

Once upon a time,
 a single act of genuine kindness...

Changes a lonely little girl's
life for the better.

"In that moment,
 I changed from a girl
 facing nothing but emptiness
 to someone with purpose.
I saw that to be a geisha
 could be a stepping stone
 to something else...
 a place in his world."
"Memoirs of a Geisha"

The little girl Chiyo
with her powerful eyes
the color of rain...

... became the beautiful Geisha
named Sayuri 

and despite much
 heartache and sorrow...

...was one day 
reunited with
the man she truly loved!

"You cannot say to the sun, "More sun."
 Or to the rain, "Less rain."
 To a man, geisha can only be half a wife.
 We are the wives of nightfall. 
And yet, to learn kindness
 after so much unkindness,
 to understand that a little girl
 with more courage than she knew, 
would find her prayers were answered, 
can that not be called happiness?
 After all these are not the memoirs
 of an empress,
 nor of a queen. 
These are memoirs
 of another kind."
"Memoirs of a Geisha" 

I just love movies
with a happy ending!
