Memoirs of a Geisha - Match Cut

by Philana Payton

As 9-year-old Chiyo escapes from her Geisha House, she slips and takes a tumble.

As she falls, instead of seeing her hit the ground, the film cuts to the image of an abacus slamming on the floor in the next scene. This is a cut that matches action from the previous scene.
