We create another secret world, a place only of beauty.

Memoirs of a Geisha is one of my favourite movies to watch, and I’ve watched it countless of times.
I’ve never been a fan of Michelle Yeoh or Zhang Ziyi, but I grew to like them after seeing this.

At the temple, there is a poem called “Loss” carved into the stone. It has three words, but the poet has scratched them out. You cannot read Loss, only feel it.

Water is powerful. It can wash away earth, put out fire, and even destroy iron.

She paints her face to hide her face. Her eyes are deep water. It is not for Geisha to want. It is not for geisha to feel. Geisha is an artist of the floating world. She dances, she sings. She entertains you, whatever you want. The rest is shadows, the rest is secret.

We must not expect happiness, Sayuri. It is not something we deserve. When life goes well, it is a sudden gift; it cannot last forever…

I could be her. Were we so different? She loved once. She hoped once. I could be her.

The heart dies a slow death, shedding each hope like leaves. Until one day there are none.

You cannot say to the sun, “More sun.” Or to the rain, “Less rain.” To a man, geisha can only be half a wife. We are the wives of nightfall.

They begin, and they end, with no lasting memories made in between.

I finally watched the movie. First of all, Tom and Summer looks so cute together! It isn’t sad, per se, but it leaves me curious about Summer. What was going through her head the whole time? I guess whatever I want to understand about her, I have to find out myself. I’m not really sure what it is though… if it’s anything at all.

The soundtrack is so fantastic! & I want to share some of my favourite scenes and quotes with you.

Photobucket“What I was never sure of with you.”

Photobucket“I need to know that you’re not gonna wake up in the morning and feel differently.”

Photobucket“And I can’t give you that. Nobody can.”

Nothing is permanent, not even death.

Heath Ledger, REALLY?

I was really confused when I saw this poster last night. The movie title didn’t ring a bell, and it didn’t make sense that Heath didn’t complete The Dark Knight but could shoot another movie before his unfortunate passing. And the last movie I know of Johnny Depp was Alice in Wonderland, and that was released after this movie. The tagline included something about immortality which made me even more confused about the whole Heath situation.

According to the interwebs, Heath didn’t manage to complete this movie. Instead of scraping all the scenes he has done, 3 other actors stepped in to play the same part. These 3 actors are Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law.

The part Tony looks pretty flamboyant in the film and I’m sure they will do a good job at delivering. The coolest part is, the other 3 Tonys are donating their earnings from this film to Heath’s daughter, upon knowing that Heath’s old will did not include the toddler. How sweet is that?!

This movie looks really exciting and it stars many of my favourite actors. Lily Cole looks stunning as Valentina as well.

Opens late January next year in Singapore!
