Tuesday 7pm Blue Screening Room

directed by Mika Ninagawa
In Japanese w/ English subtitles
2007 – 111 min.

Adapted from a manga with the same name, Sakuran, is the story of a defiant oiran, or prostitute, living in feudal Japan. Much like Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, Sakuran is rich with color and style, with a modern sensibility and soundtrack. Anna Tsuchiya, of Kamikaze Girls fame, rides that fine line of being bitchy, independent, and likeable, always choosing love over fortune.
