vermillion horizon

Friday, March 10, 2006


The Oscars have come and gone for another year. Last Sunday, we tuned in to the awards ceremony, but it was more or less just for background noise. We hadn't seen any of the movies up for best picture and none of our favorite actors or actresses were up for any awards, so the four hour broadcast didn't hold much interest for us.

But my ears did perk up a couple of times when I heard talk about one of the very few movies nominated for an award that I had actually seen: Memoirs of a Geisha. This movie had been nominated in six categories and by the end of the night, it had collected three awards: art design, cinematography, and costume design.

Geisha was a worthy winner in these categories - the movie is visually stunning. Everything from the expansive Japanese landscapes to the intricately detailed kimono worn by the geisha was breathtaking. It really brought the book alive in a way my imagination had not been able to comprehend. The movie is quite long, but I never got bored because it was just so beautiful to watch - I felt as if I were right there in Gion along with the characters.
