Lost in Translation (2003)
A film with a subtle beauty and a soundtrack of equal measure 8/10
Having seen this film in the IMDb top 500 I decided to give it a watch. Firstly the superb cinematography and a magnificent soundtrack blew me away. The actual plot comes across very simple and realistic to begin with but it evolves throughout and you find yourself constantly evaluating the scenario thinking what would I do?
Bill Murray as always is brilliant (possibly his best performance) and Scarlett Johansson brings the beauty and sparkle to the movie. I don't want to babble on about what happens because you should watch it first!
Sofia Copola's trademark shots from outside the car looking in and sunlight bursting through tree leaves etc capture the emotions of both main characters in a way that's so difficult to do and with the addition of outstanding music that fits SO WELL its hard not to like this movie
If your looking for an action packed thrill ride then I suggest you look elsewhere but for a film that's real, complex and aesthetically beautiful Lost in translation takes a lot to beat.
