    Despite all the critical acclaim, Bill Murray received for this film, acting as a depressed American actor lonely in Japan, the ironic thing is how little his style changed from his 80s comedies to this. But those droopy canine eyes and that dour delivery sure pull at the heart strings here. Such a poetic evocation of what it means to feel alone in an unfamiliar place.

    What does a love story need to be a love story? Not much... It needs people, and that's about it... On the surface, "Lost in translation" is an exploration of cultural differences and loneliness, but its true intent is revealed in the first five minutes, when two people make accidental eye contact in the lift. Maybe they do so, because they both stick out and are easily spotted. Maybe they are drawn to one another because of their loneliness and…

    Sometimes, depending on my mood, this is the most beautiful movie I've ever seen. There's an aching loveliness in every shot, in every moment, and I want to crawl into its warmth and just bask in that feeling forever. This is the movie that Sofia Coppola dreamed of, and somehow, miraculously, it feels like something someone could have only dreamed. I want to call it elegiac, but that’s too mournful when the movie is so full of life. But the…

    Lost in Translation shook me to my core when I first saw it, about five or six years ago, and it’s still every bit as beautiful and wandering and poetic as it was the first time. There are no words for what Murray achieves in his performance here. It’s just an astonishingly controlled and nuanced performance. And Johansson’s performance is so mature, which is so impressive because she was only 18.

    And like, the writing is terrific, I love its…

    There are no words that can accurately describe the way falling in (and out of ) love with a transient person or place feels.
    It's alienating.
    It's sad.
    It's hard.
    It's incredibly quiet.
    And it's very similar to the way this movie feels.
    Plus. Bill Murray is the fucking man.

    I've started to put off revisits of this as it seems to lose a bit of its charm each time. Some of that is that LOST IN TRANSLATION almost works best as a memory--its greatest accomplishment is its sustained mood, and so it's somewhat more satisfying to think about that mood from a distance rather than watch the film and be taken out of the experience every time there's a nit to pick or the script goes too broad, which…

    Lost in Translation is a drowsy vignette about 2 people that are sick of small talk and tiresome relationships. Both are, in their own way, trying to find themselves. Charlotte's husband can only speak 3 words, Bob's wife only calls to talk about carpet samples. But when Charlotte and Bob meet, they find an odd but real comfort together.

    Excellent soundtrack and sound production, some fun cinematography and a beautiful setting for the main characters to find eachother in.
    Very sleepy, comforting vibe with funny parts throughout.

    If you liked 'Her', you will enjoy this. I highly recommend it.

    I think when you're in the foreign country you must have this feeling for being confused and different just because the languages and cultures, then when you find someone who's from the same country like you, you feel so comfort and its okay right away to be different around this strange land.

    This is it. The strange of Japan made an old man found himself got lost his road but somehow, there's this young woman pop out in front of…
