Lost in Translation 
Lost in Translation review
4/4 stars

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, being close to a new friend, marital complexities, culture and attention were depicted well throughout the film. This was way better than the directors first efforts, funnier than most rom-coms and touching at the same time without compromising values. Lost in Translation brought in the humor and sorrows of being in another country while creating an air of mystery with the whisper of Bob that made Charlotte emotional and contented at the same time.
