Memoirs of a Geisha(2005)

Hello guys! I’m back after a long time of absence, I was taking care of my paperwork and stuff for my study in Singapore(OH YEAAAH!).

This was taken April 2012

Sadly, I wasn’t able to finish that 30-day challenge, oh well. Next time then!

Anyway, I shall continue to post Filmspiration for you guys!

Memoirs of a Geisha (2005)

Directed By: Rob Marshall

this was just one of the most beautiful shots I’ve seen in the movie.

Story wise, I am a SUCKER for period films as you’ve all seen in my previous posts. This movie did not disappoint, although it would’ve been better if the dialogue was in Japanese(they could just subtitle it and it would’ve looked even more authentic). Overall, not bad at all, even the OST isn’t bad.

This movie was all about their freedom, freedom to be who they were, to love who they wanted to, etc. A topic that a lot can relate to, specially women in under slave labor/domestic violence and the like. I urge women out there, if you can read this and you are oppressed in ANY way,

Please don’t be silent, don’t tolerate it. speak out, tell someone/anyone.

If you don’t have anyone to share your problems with, you can email me instead, or call your local help line. Silence won’t get you anywhere.

Anyway, what do you guys think of the film? Leave a comment or a suggestion below, or suggest a movie you’d want me to watch next.

 **COMING SOON to a theatre near you**

Speaking of Japanese movies, how AWESOME is the news of an upcoming Rorouni Kenshin Live Action Movie! *fangirl*

The trailer looks GREAT. I hope they do justice to the original anime. Anyway here’s a link to the trailer if you haven’t watched it yet. Share it with all your friends! Yeah!

Stay awesome ♥

The Joy Luck Club (1993)

The Joy Luck Club

1993

Directed by: Wayne Wang

Produced by Ronald Bass, Amy Tan, Patrick Markey

based on the New York Times bestseller “The Joy Luck Club” by Amy Tan

Let me just say this is a film that is close to my heart, being Chinese and Filipino. The emotion and tension felt between the mothers and daughters in the film is as real as you can get if you look at most Chinese mother-daughter relationships.(pretty darn awkward indeed in my case)

I suggest if you haven’t read the book yet, to go out and read it, its whimsical and touching in a cultural way(specially if you know a bit of chinese). It is an excellent read.

The Help(2011)

The Help

2011

Directed by : Tate Taylor

From the book by Kathryn Stockett

Cast: Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer

This is one of those movies that really kicks the crap out of you and leaves you to cry like a little sissy baby. specially when you’ve had the privilege to be raised by a maid(or yaya in our country).

I had a very sad parting with the maid that raised me since I was a child so this film really made me tear up big time.
