Enjoy the film with a glass of Suntory Whisky on the rocks
“Lost in Translation revels in contradictions. It’s a comedy about melancholy, a romance without consummation, a travelogue that rarely hits the road.” TIME Magazine
“Very much a mood piece, the film’s deft balance of humor and poignancy makes it both a pleasurable and melancholy experience.” Variety
“So far as the central relationship goes, the film is almost European in its subtlety and nuance. Cinematic cherry blossom.” Time Out
A lonely, aging movie star named Bob Harris (Bill Murray) and a conflicted newlywed, Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), meet in Tokyo. Bob is there to film a Japanese whiskey commercial; Charlotte is accompanying her celebrity-photographer husband. Strangers in a foreign land, the two find escape, distraction and understanding amidst the bright Tokyo lights after a chance meeting in the quiet lull of the hotel bar. They form a bond that is as unlikely as it is heartfelt and meaningful.
Dir. Sofia Coppola. 104 min. 2003.
