It’s been quite a while since I actually sat down and enjoyed a movie. It seems to me that 2006 was utterly bereft of good and enjoyable films and even less so for the amount there are that one would consider watching multiple times.
Fortunately however, a movie produced in 2005 came to the rescue a couple of days ago, unearthed from the depths of our DVD library collection by my daughter Hanan who invited us all to watch it, and thanks to her, I totally enjoyed it.
Memoirs of a Geisha’s cast, acting, direction, cinematography, costume, music, editing, and just about everything exceeded my expectations. This is a movie that most definitely will sit in my “favourites” shelf and I am sure will be watched and enjoyed by myself time and again.
