Lost in Translation. This title makes me think of some adventure. This movie isn’t an adventurous tale, but has its qualities. This shows one’s journeys and how they can relate to each other.

This movie was filmed in Tokyo, and released in 2003. The leads of this movie are Bill Murray (Bob) and Scarlett Johansson (Charlotte).

Charlotte has a selfish perspective of seeing things. Because her husband is doing new things she thinks that her life is changing too much and that she’s made a mistake in marriage and doesn’t know her partner.

Bob is a working father. He feels sad because he’s always working and doesn’t spend time with his kids, but he also feels that his job isn’t worth it anymore as he’s become has-been.

They have this lonely connection that brings them together. This movie shows how no matter how different things are for people, there’s always a connection that brings them together.

My favorite part of this movie was the bond between the two, Bob and Charlotte. With such different personalities and perspectives, they still find this strong connection with each other and how lonely they feel.

I would rate this movie a 7/10. I’m not too much into the dramatic emotional movies but would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a heartfelt story.
