Neon Hip Geisha

Hey! Movie Monday! So I thought I would start recommending movies with either great Asian themed production design or something interesting and Eurasian. I know I posted a movie last Friday but I thought, " Hey! there no rules here!? ", so I'm going to start having Movie Monday. So look forward to production clips and even possible trailers!

Sakuran is not the typical Geisha movie. It's the Anti-"Memoirs of a Geisha" and more like a Geisha twist on Sofia Coppola's "Marie Antoinette". The Lead actress Anna Tsuchiya is half Japanese and Russian/American. She is the rebel ass-kicking Geisha. It's fun to watch and the music feel punk next to these images. Directed by Ninagawa Mika, she is also known for her Photography and her style.
