Brilliant: Lost in translation de Sofia Coppola (2003),one of my top favourites. I love this image of Scarlett looking out over Tokyo..this film perfectly captures many of the sensations one has as a Westerner in Japan.
Module A. Elective 2. Comedy. Lost In Translation (2003). A lonely, aging movie star named Bob Harris and a conflicted newlywed, Charlotte, meet in Tokyo. Bob is there to film a Japanese 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.
