Memoirs of a Geisha

Continuity mistake: When Mother and Mameha are waiting for the bid on Sayuri's mizuage, Mother's cigarette is short at one point, but becomes longer in the next shot.

Factual error: When Hatsumomo wakes up late to torture little Chiyo again, her kimono is closed the wrong way.

Factual error: The troop trucks you see belonging to the Japanese Army are incorrect post-War models. During World War II, the Imperial Japanese Army employed trucks that were nearly carbon copies of the Studebaker 3-axle 2 1/2 ton model (or used captured British Bedford trucks).

Chairman: Please, Sayuri, do not be afraid to look at me.

Mameha: We do not become Geisha to pursue our own destinies. We become Geisha because we have no other choice.
