Still: Sakuran

**** "...feel the width and wonder of the imagery." Nigel Andrews, F.T


The Anti-Memoirs of a Geisha, Sakuran is a luscious visual treat and directorial debut from Japanese photographer Mika Ninagawa. The tale of bad-girl courtesan Kiyoha, with a wonderfully oddball score of jazz, electro and Japanese pop and lavish costumes to boot, this film excels as a warm-hearted and original tale of one woman snarling, biting and kicking her way to the top.

Dir Mika Ninagawa, Japan 2006, 111 mins, Cert 15, subtitles
