A Geisha (1953)

Kenji Mizoguchi directs Michiyo Kogure, Ayako Wakao and Seizaburō Kawazu in this Japanese drama where an independent geisha takes on a protege.

Beautiful but stark drama about how outside (craven, capitalist) forces will peck away at a perfect thing until they destroy it. You can’t own perfection. We should all have to go to geisha training camp – wish there was another movie completely set there.
