Hiya Boomstick, I think you will find that RR means that the actors are 'sanctioned' rather than the movie! :confused:

Also, don't get me wrong; I think all three of these ladies are wonderfully competent actors, and could probably act rings around many of their Hollywood counterparts. I actually think Ziyi Zhang would make a perfect Sayuri...she seems to often portray the right demeanour to pull off that part. I think what initially motivated my comments was the Sino-Japanese tension since WWII. Such casting seems almost insensitive in light of the debate that, even today, rages across the China Sea over the Rape of Nanking in 1937/8.

Another point, the girl from The Last Samurai, Koyuki, who played Katsumoto's sister-in-law Taka, could have got a part. Having said that, I was not a casting agent in the production of this movie, so there may be reasons. Reasons I hope that are not English driven.

MOAG is clearly an English production, which indicates it is geared to a Western audience. It would be interesting to compare a Japanese production of the same movie.

A movie like this will seem weird being in English. I would almost be more inclined to want to see it in Japanese and subtitled; that would make it more authentic...possibly.
