    Everybody has its own crisis so be it in the 30s or when 18. Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson show us that when completely lost in Tokyo (which I believe was used as the scenario for the film because of its disparate culture). With a simple yet engaging storytelling we see how those people feel in middle of a life crisis and for that you must look to the details in their gestutres which hid those feelings. Although the film…

    So much to work with from so little

    This film is not for everyone, especially when the draw card was Bill Murray (a fodder from countless 80s comedies), those who are familiar and expecting the same will have felt that "their gears have been grounded" when this film was an arthouse
    What was so "little" about this film? The plot, there were minimal contrivances into what people had expected to see in a movie (in the year 2003)
    Yet what…

    Going to see "Lost in Translation" was sort of like finally visiting one of those Meccas people always talk about.

    Before the movie arrived in theaters, it was already promoting the cornerstones for its "foundation of worth": It included Bill Murray in the cast and "Lost in Translation" was the second feature-length film by writer/director Sofia Coppola, who was of course bred from thou holy loins of Francis Ford Coppola. Generations X and Y have made Francis Ford Coppola into…

    A landmark performance from Bill Murray in Sofia Coppola's movie. How can two people experiencing loneliness find a connection in one of the most densely populated cities. Such a simple story but captivating throughout.

    Best movie of 2003. This film is about an actor past his prime and a bored, young wife form an unlikely companionship in Tokyo. This movie had one of the best writing of 2003, The movie had strong two main characters that made the movie more sweet and sad at the same time. The directing is so good that It should have won a Oscar for directing and that's right am saying that lord of the rings the return of…

    After hearing many different things about this movie from many different people, I decided I would watch it by myself and make my own mind up. I am very glad I did!

    I found this movie to be funny, sweet and really touching. The cinematography was fantastic and I loved the chemistry between Bob and Charlotte.

    Having been to Japan a few years ago myself with very little prior knowledge of Japanese language or culture, I know how Bob and…

    Cute, verges on boring but there's enough quirky lines by Murray to pull it over the line

    Lost in Translation tried to be something great but it fell short for me. I admire Sofia Coppola as a director because there are so few female directors and she has managed to make herself noteworthy (although I'm sure having Francis Ford Coppola as a father makes it a little easier to break into the business as well). Regardless, I enjoyed her film Marie Antoinette so much that I incorporated it in my AP Euro essay about a year ago.…

    Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation is a quiet, meditative film that revels in silence. The words unspoken. The subtle facial expressions. The body language. It is an interesting movie, and maybe I didn't love it as much as others, but I still found it poignant and quite funny.

    Bill Murray turns in an excellent performance, conveying a sweet side. Johansson also holds her own with the veteran actor. Their chemistry is under the surface, just like a lot of things…
