Bob is there to film a Japanese whiskey commercial; Charlotte is accompanying her celebrity-photographer husband.

      Rania Richardson AV Club The culture has shifted in the two decades since Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson bonded in a Tokyo hotel for LOST IN TRANSLATION, one of Sophia Coppola's best. Rated: 3.5/4 Feb 14, 2024 Full Review Adam Nayman The Ringer Just like the final words of Sofia Coppola’s film, the best parts of the movie are left indecipherable... Sep 29, 2023 Full Review Joshua Rothkopf In These Times ...its pretty images of Tokyo and oddball intergenerational friendship coalesce into something unexpectedly moving... Mar 16, 2020 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand Sofia Coppola’s sophomore film is another exploration of delicate relationships and uncommunicated frustrations, this one in a beautifully composed atmosphere of isolation. Apr 8, 2023 Full Review Annlee Ellingson CineWomen It remains mesmerizing all these years later, even upon repeat viewings. Aug 17, 2022 Full Review Victor Pineyro Seventh Art Studio Life stops being terrifying when we open the doors to the unknown. Even for a short amount of time. Coppola's "Lost in Translation" is written beautifully. Full review in Spanish Rated: 7/10 Apr 7, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      João M É um filme horrível. Chato. Sonolento. Não há nada de interessante. Provavelmente, o filme mais superestimado que já conheci. Sério, não o assista! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/01/24 Full Review Tom H A film that is absolute marmite. You either “get it” or you don’t. If you don’t I can imagine it’s utterly boring and depressing. For me it’s one of the greatest films ever made and I found it summed up what so many people feel like. People question it’s relevance 21 years later…I’d contend that it’s more relevant now than it was in 2003. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/29/24 Full Review Bee O Dull, miserable and boring - watching this film was an unsettlingly depressing experience - feel free to bail out anytime if you decide to give it a go!… Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/28/24 Full Review RED 0 A charming movie, hypnotic at times, a love story that's hard to figure out. Just a great movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/05/24 Full Review Hargie M As the film unfolds, we are reminded of the universal longing for connection and belonging, and the profound sense of isolation that can accompany it. Yet, amidst the chaos and uncertainty of life, Lost in Translation offers a glimmer of hope – a reminder that even in the most unexpected places, we can find moments of connection and meaning. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/24/24 Full Review Arturo H Great movie, relatable if you travel a lot for work. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/21/24 Full Review Read all reviews
