Sakuran Film Poster


Sumptuously-filmed Japanese historical drama accompanied by an upbeat contemporary score. The film tells the story of a rebellious young woman (Anna Tsuchiya) whose indifferent mother sells her to a brothel in the red-light district of Yoshiwara. There she struggles to adapt to life as an Oiran (courtesan), trained by the beautiful Shohi (Kanno Miho), and gradually gains popularity until she begins to overshadow former favourite Takao (Kimura Yoshino), much to Takao's jealousy and disdain.

Contains strong sex and brief bloody violence
