Has anyone seen this?

I know it wasn't all real but wasn't Hatsumomo's(Gong Li) hair the most amazing hair you've ever seen? Knee length , straight and black. It looked sooo striking. I wish I could get screencaps.

Sayuri? She was played by ZiYi Zhang. I think she was more beautiful too but a psycho!

I've read the book but I didn't get round to seeing the film. Was it good? Must go and search pictures of it now!

I can hardly believe that, she looks so great. Both she and Ziyi Zhang are
beautiful actresses.

My best friend years ago was Japanese. He was 24 and had grown hair from shoulder to waist in a year.

He was also 130 pounds and all of our other Japanese friends thought he was "fat".

Hair type: who knows?
Length: 23 inches as of 3/10/06
MY HAIR IS OFFICIALLY BRA STRAP LENGTH!!
Goal: Waist Length, which is only 30 inches so
ADVISE ME ON HOW TO GET JUST 7 MORE INCHES OF GROWTH!

Beautiful hair, but no geisha would ever wear her hair down in public.

Was anyone else annoyed that they got Chinese actresses to play Japanese
women? Why not Japanese actresses?

YES, that was so weird. I noticed it right away....wasn't the lead actress the one from crouching tiger? Or house of flying daggers? My friend and I talked about that after the movie - we were sort of disturbed that they didn't cast Japanese actresses......

Well, Hollywood doesn't always use Germans to play Nazis in WW2 movies.

Yeah but Japanese and Chinese have completely different characteristics. That said, I think they did a brilliant job of making Gong Li look Japanese. She didn't look out of place.

I would have like to have seen Chiaki Kuriyama (the actress that played
lucy liu's little minon girl in Kill Bill vol. 1) play the main character instead
of Ziyi Zhang.

Anyway, back to the hair...I wonder how long Gong Li's hair really is and
how much of that length is extensions.
