In the 1920s, 9-year-old Chiyo gets sold to a geisha house. There, she is forced into servitude, receiving nothing in return until the house's ruling hierarchy determines if she is of high enough quality to service the clientele -- men who visit and pay for conversation, dance and song. After rigorous years of training, Chiyo becomes Sayuri, a geisha of incredible beauty and influence. Life is good for Sayuri, but World War II is about to disrupt the peace.Awards: Won 3 Oscars., Another 27 wins & 44 nominations.Budget: $85,000,000 (estimated)Worldwide Gross: $162,242,962Soundtrack: Rokudan Written by Kengyo Yatsuhashi Performed by Zumi-Kai Original Instrumental Group Courtesy of Delta Entertainment Corporation Under license from Bescol, Ltd.
