• I could be her. Were we so different? She loved once. She hoped once. I could be her. I might be looking into my own future. Until the real future came falling from the air… [referring to the war]


In memoirs of a geisha, Sayuri was looking into her future when Hatsumomo was insulted and was thrown out of the house. Since her childhood she watched Hatsumomo, her way of living her attitude towards life. Once while coming back to her home at night after meeting her sister, Sayuri saw Hatsumomo with her love of life. Mameha after hearing them talk came out and caught  Hatsumomo. She was then never allowed to go out anywhere alone. She was forced to leave her love, as they were not allowed to love. Throughout their life, they were just taught to do their job, that is to be the best geisha and impress as many men as they can.

Here Sayuri is referring herself as Hatsumomo because though she was not allowed to love, but still she love the chairman and devoted her entire life to him. She wanted to be a geisha just for him. Just like Hatsumomo she was hoping to be his once. But his was not a fairytale, she had to face the reality. The reality was very cruel, she was never allowed to love and thought that just like Hatsumomo she’ll be frustrated with her life and one day will destroy herself.

But this did not happen either, there was a was in the country and she was complled to leave her country. And was sent to an isolated place, there she stayed for like 2 years. Until one day  President Nobu came to meet her and took her with him. There she got to meet the Chirman once again. Ultimately got her love of life.

 I can never relate this movie to anywhere near to my life. This is something really new for me. This movie tells us about the kind of culture in Japan and how geishas are different from a normal women. It even tells us about their lifestyle and the difficulties they face. This movie was a ‘black’ movie. As in it was a sad movie which was based on sorrows and there was nothing so exiciting in their lives. they knew that one fine day they have to become a geisha and that was a reality for them.
