Sakuran [ NON-USA FORMAT, PAL, Reg.2 Import - Great Britain ]
I really enjoyed this Japanese movie "Sakuran".  It is a story that takes place in the Yoshiwara (geisha) district of Tokyo.  It is glorious eye candy.  Although the reviews in Japan were mostly negative, I loved the overall use of red, gorgeous kimono, beautiful flower arrangements, great sound track, and scene after scene that looked like Japanese prints.  The original story comes from a manga (Japanese comic book).  If you can find a copy with English subtitles, watch it it's worth while.  Hopefully it will be on Netflix soon.
