I had seen this movie more than fifteen years ago. I was about 17. I remember, I had to go to bed immediately because had things to do in the morning, but couldn't manage. The movie attracted me so much that couldn't stand up and go. It had a fascinating manner, romantic story, dramatic occasions, spiritual interaction with nature. I had been fascinated. After a long time passed, the information lost in impossibilities became possible to get by internet. It is interesting that my search keywords were "a Japanese hunter geisha Sibirian movie", because I didn't remember its name or anything else. I hope I can find and see it again.
