One of the very best movies I've ever seen
7 November 2000 | by (Jacksonville, Florida) – See all my reviews

I am disabled and when you are disabled, at times, you are depressed. American Geisha, fortunately, has been aired on my Satellite stations often and whenever I watch it, it lifts my spirits. I only wish I was young again and could experience an experience as Gillian Burke did. What an honor was bestowed on her by allowing her to become a Geisha. I only wish I could let Pam Dawber know how much this movie has done for me and I continue to watch it as often as it comes on.

Thank you Pam for making such an awesome, wonderful, true story movie.
