"Don't take me lightly".
1 November 2017 | by manfromplanetxSee all my reviews

 The Prickly-mouthed Geisha stars the wonderful Japanese singer, actress and cultural icon Hibari Misora , this marvellous film also features an excellent supporting cast which includes Takashi Shimura.    The engaging musical  has a contemporary setting,  Misora plays a  geisha named Koharu, a modern girl forced into the profession because of her father's mounting debts , she possesses a spirited nature refusing to provide any of the "extras"... The light romantic comedy drama opens with a confrontation, Koharu takes on three men threatening a young woman . "I am Koharu from Yanagibashi. Don't take me lightly". as she slaps them around and sends them on their way, the tone is set.  A vividly colourful film moves a lively tempo, interwoven throughout a variety of captivating musical numbers. Charming and delightful performances are a highlight, Misora has a lovely sweet singing voice, she even does some terrific deadpan, highly entertaining fun.   The enjoyment value of similar Japanese romantic comedies varies greatly. The Prickly-mouthed Geisha shines out, a sparkling quality, little gem of a film that I would Highly Recommended for all enthusiasts of Japanese classic musical comedy.
