The beginnings are promising. But his knocked down by a tramway. He loses his leg, and with it, any hope of getting a job. The girl is then sold to a renowned geisha House and will learn arts. She has to learn how to sing, dance, walk with elegance and talent in order to avoid becoming a servant herself, or a prostitute. The child is gifted to play the shamisen. Knowing how to play this guitar with three strings, will allow her to be in charge of her life. Becoming a geisha, will allow her to ensure the survival of her family and to have a future. But nothing is every easy for this child with an unsightly face and wild looks. She will become Kitsune, the fox. A very romantic comic book storyline, written and created based on a Japanese filmography which probably inspired the scenes chosen by Durieux. The black and white drawings are a tribute to the cinema of the 1930s. ‘Geisha ou Le jeu du Shamizen’ is also based on a Japanese bibliography, from Taniguchi to Bouvier, and is also a wonderful tribute to cultured women in traditional Japan, as intriguing as they are fascinating. Perrissin tells a personified and melancholic story with a delicate writing carried by Durieux’s work on the black colouring. The time of the geisha is revived.
