Synopsis

A contemporary drama based on American anthropologist Liza Dalby's experiences as a foreigner living in the world of the Japanese geisha in Kyoto for her graduate paper at Stanford University. It was published in 1983 under the title, "Geisha," which was also the original title of the film, produced entirely on location in Tokyo and Kyoto in the summer of 1985. Portions of the movie are uncomfortably similar to the earlier "Girls of the White Orchid," when the fictional Gillian Burke is forced to work in seedy Japanese bars, fending off the advances of amorous businessman. (Both movies, incidently, featured Richard Narita, with whom the leading lady in each gets involved).
