What an honest and quiet film. My favorite bits were the scenes without dialogue, and there were just enough of those. When you see a Japanese meal, or you see bits of ice melting and clinking in a glass and you know it's supposed to be alcohol but in reality it's only iced tea. That was the entire movie for me.

"Lost In Translation" is easily one of the worst movies ever made. Every aspect of this movie is awful, from the wretched direction of Sofia Coppola (who obviously has none of her dad's talent), to the lame acting (Bill Murray is a lot better in movies like "Ghostbusters"), to the story which goes nowhere, to the slow pacing. How this movie got so many great reviews is beyond me. A pointless and utterly boring exercise in nothingness. I absolutely despised every frame of this vomitus movie.

Un-awkward silences.

This movie is so beautifully empty. It's very reminiscent of real life and how we mask our contempts. Often people are happier alone than with their most loved ones. Who hasn't just wanted to get away from an awkward conversation and look out of a window?
I guess you could argue: this movie is about nothing. It's simply a couple of people happening to stay in the same hotel and experiencing the same obtrusive culture shock.

The acting by Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson is quite unprecedented. Murray still had the wit and charm of his other roles and Johansson gave a breakthrough performance.
Their relationship in the film is what we don't see anymore nowadays. Unstable, unmarked and on no particular path. It's great.

Japan is captured beautifully. No nonsense, no intended produ...

A near perfect masterpiece

Lost in Translation is one of those films in which just about everything is perfect. The performances from Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson are simply brilliant and their chemistry is great. The cinematography is magnificent and the eclectic soundtrack works very well. Lost in Translation is a joy to watch from start to finish.

Bob Harris (Bill Murray) is an aging actor who comes to Tokyo to shoot a TV commercial for Suntory Whiskey. Bob is in the midst of a mid-life crisis, as he grows bored with his marriage and ventures down to the hotel bar, where he meets Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson) a recent college graduate married to John (Giovanni Ribisi), a photographer who seems to pay little attention to her, opting for the company of models, as well as airhead actress Kelly (Anna...

Lost in Translation review

A rare romantic comedy that not everybody might enjoy, fortuitously this reviewer had a blast which each frame of the picture. Bob Harris (Bill Murray) is an unhappily married movie star. He meets a Yale graduate named Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson) who lacks attention from her husband. Excellent and earnest screenplay with the unsullied lines: “It gets a whole more complicated when you have kids.” “The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you let...things upset you.” “Did you ever wonder what your purpose in life is?” The direction and cinematography brought out the beauty and culture of Japan aside from poking fun at the people. Soundtrack was upbeat and sad at specific applicable scenes. Murray was just brilliant and the themes of being lost in another culture...
