    A middle-aged actor shooting a whiskey commercial (Bill Murray) and a neglected young wife (Scarlett Johansson), both American, cross paths in a Tokyo hotel. Both exist in a kind of limbo--emotionally distant from their spouses, physically distant from their homes and culture, tired and dissatisfied. A sweet friendship that avoids the traditional movie cliches grows between them. The story may seem meandering and aimless, but that is an accurate reflection of the lives of these characters. Murray plays his role…

    When I first watched Lost in Translation a number of years ago, I was immediately struck by the sheer beauty and power of this little film, and it has since remained one of my favourites. Since the last few movies I've watched have been, on the whole, rather disappointing, I felt it was time to revisit a classic to reignite my love for film.

    Lost is Translation is beautifully written and directed by Sofia Coppola. The film is perfectly structured,…

    Lost In Translation is perhaps the most unlikely film I can think of that has been nominated for the Best Picture Oscar. It's a very quiet, understated film, but one that very much wears its heart on its sleeve. It has been described by many as a comedy, but I can't say I really thought of it that way. A more accurate summation would be existential drama, as two Americans - one a washed-up actor having a midlife crisis, the…

    I never really gave Lost in Translation a fair chance, dismissing it when I was younger and as I grew older and more open to film, I simply forgot about it. Having seen quite a few films lately with Scarlett Johansson and/or Bill Murray, I finally remembered about the film I should have seen that never was.

    Lost in Translation is a quiet film, but to me, it is very optimistic. I could see how others would think otherwise, but…

    This movie has a very lonely, nostalgic vibe to it. I'm not gonna lie, I'm the type of person who usually goes for fun, exciting blockbusters (Marvel movies, anyone?), but this is the perfect film for a quiet night at home by yourself. It's not the kind of movie I would watch with someone. To really appreciate the cinematography (something I usually don't look for in a movie, but is highly appreciated when done well), I prefer to watch it…

    novamente, o que mais me conquista em um filme da sofia coppola acaba sendo a trilha sonora.

    (o que acredito ser natural para um filme com uma quantidade pequenas de diálogos e muitas falas em outro idioma)

    No story to speak of. Simple characters. Nothing really happens. Wonderful!

    I'm probably in the minority, but this movie was not for me. Nothing of consequence seemed to happen, nothing really changed. There was no progression, except for time. Felt more like a fragment of a statement that didn't make sense without the full statement...
