Except two funny moments, chaotic and boring
8 March 2002 | by henco_kuiphofSee all my reviews

This high-school drama is about a girl who wants to be a geisha (japanese prostitute). She lives with her aunt who runs a geisha-house. The movie follows the girl in school, where she's not accepted by other students and during her, not so succesfull, education for geisha at her aunts house. Live seems to get better when she's asked to perform on a schooltheater night, as a traditional dancer...

The story is very chaotic, which a lot of irrelevant sidelines and a very sudden end (at first I thought the projector broke down). Beside a couple of absurd moments the movie is boring and too long.
