Customer Review

on 27 May 2007
Lost in translation is widely recognised as a love/hate film. Everyone has an opinion, whether it be bad or good. Maybe it is because i am a big fan of sofia coppola's directing... maybe it's because i have been to japan and china myself, therefore identifying with the two protagonists... whatever it is, i think this is a masterpiece. The utter beauty of it stills leaves me breatheless whenever i watch it.

The story follows two people, a man and a woman (played by scarlet johanssen and bill murray) who are thrust into the confusing world of the orient. They identify with eachother as they are in similar situations in that they dont like their lives... yet both can find solace with the other. The film is basically a love story between the two characters and their experience of a different continent, which could've been incredibly boring without the subtle humour of the incredibly well-written script, the stunning cinematography and the superb performances of the actors (both main and supporting). If you appreciate these three things, it will deliver.

Whether you love it (like me), or you hate it, one thing is for sure... You will argue until you are blue in the face to prove your opinion of this film.
