Yeah, I can relate.
It's rare to see a movie that only has an interest in its characters and makes them so charming, lovable, and familiar. How many of you can relate to the feeling of happily married/in relationship yet feeling alone and confused wondering why? We all have, right. In the end of the movie, I felt a strange sense of depression that lasted for a few days, but I couldn't put my finger on why. This is why this is good.
Watched it again for the 12th time (at least) with my mother. Use this opportunity to finally say and assert that Lost in Translation is in my top 5 all time. Bill Murray is a living god and I always cry at the end. Most romantic work I've seen in my life.
Never expressing his feelings in a very clear, although it is not necessary (the beautiful scene where they talk drowsy, lying in bed is already clear enough: it is a couple in love!), we follow the growth of the feeling of both, and thus the end of the movie, all we want is to stay together, as if made for each other. www.cinemadebuteco.com
Bill Murray is spectacular. I love this movie and don't know if I can put into words why. I just do. This is better than anything her father has directed since Apocalypse Now.
"I'm stuck. Does it get easier?" This film amazes me more with each viewing. It's so hopelessly romantic, full of longing and yearning and sleep deprivation and stuff left unsaid. It always makes me feel as if I know Tokyo and it makes me miss it. I love Scarlett Johannson in this, everything she did after Lost in Translation is hardly worth mentioning compared to her performance as Charlotte.
This film grew on me. Though reminiscent of Antonioni, LiT has a warmth for its characters, their quirks and ultimately life that makes it rewarding. I guess that is why watching Antonioni is so difficult for me - his films say that there's nothing to life (I'm yet to watch an Antonioni that hinted at some sort of redemption). Sofia still believes that there's hope.
theres something about this movie.. im in love with it. perhaps its my insane lust for scarlett johansson (id fallen for her (*and* thora birch) since seeing 'ghost world'), or perhaps its my admiration for comedic genius bill murray. whatever it is, its made me fall in love with shoegaze music, its made me fall in love with japan, and its made me fall in love with the idea of falling in love. and thats all i need.
Must say that this is a Murray's awesome performance. But got really disappointed by the way the storyline was developed. Guess Bob was "lost in translation" not only by the language, but also by the feeling Charlotte made grown in him. I just can't say this was the best way to picture the feeling.
