Synopsis

As much a social history of early 20th-century Japan as it is a romantic drama, this visually-stunning film, based on the best-selling novel by Arthur Golden, tells the story of Chiyo, who is sold by her family at aged nine to become a geisha in the country's former capital, Kyoto. While there she becomes intense rivals with Hatsumomo, who fears the younger woman will become more successful than her. However, Chiyo comes under the wing of the kindly Mameha and, now called Sayuri, she becomes the most famous geisha in Japan. However, her unrequited love for the only man that ever showed her genuine affection and the onset of the Second World War change everything for Sayuri.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
