Geishas stir China’s rage and pride – Jane Macartney

From The Australian:

Three Chinese actors have evoked outrage and jubilation in the internet chatrooms of China by appearing as Japanese geishas in the film Memoirs of a Geisha. Ziyi Zhang, China’s most famous actress, has attracted epithets and accolades from “shameful traitor” to “graceful beauty” for her role.

The outrage stems from the anger that most Chinese still feel over Japan’s brutal occupation before and during World War II.
