|Re: Who Does Iwamura Ken (Chairman) Portray in Real Life?
see the above link for a photo of "chairman", aka Ken Iwamura, aka true name Konosuke Matsushita . The dvd of the movie is out as of today. i've read the book in it's entirity myself three times now. It is very intersting,,see also the book "Geisha, A Life", by Mineko Iwasaki...Personally i found THAT book a bit abbrasive, but intersting..Yes there is a lawsuit going on regarding a story of geisha, but it is of "Geisha A Life", not "Memoires of a Geisha"..in this book, she even mentions the author of the book Memoires of a Geisha, (in a very disparaging way).
