Lost In Translation * Sofia Coppola * 2003

Bill Murray plays the film actor Bob Harris who is in Tokyo to shoot some commercials. Scarlett Johansson is Charlotte who is also in Tokyo because her husband is working as band-photographer. From the first minute Coppola lays much stress on the differences between American and Japanese culture and continues to do this in the film. Both Bob and Charlotte are lost in Tokyo, having problems sleeping, have no clue how to behave in the Japanese city and keep running into eachother in the hotel lobby in the middle of the night. A strange friendship between the old man and the young woman develops in which Bob becomes a bit of a teacher for Charlotte. A nice film with nice shooting. <27/9/04><3>
