A clever thought provoking film - Lost in Translation review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
11/10/2005

Lost In Translation is a film which is astounding in its simplicity. The portrayal of the growing relationship between two lost, lonely people will stay with you long after you have seen it. It's not a film which everyone will understand or relate to. What you will get out of this film will depend on your own life experiences. Out of everyone that watches this film half will totally get the point of, and fall in love this film. The other half will miss the whole meaning and will no doubt feel bored and confused. It's a film that conveys so many emotions. It is poignant; leaving you with feelings of both happiness and sadness. There are moments of humour, yet it is not a comedy, but it is not a drama either. It is, simply put, very real, nothing is forced. The relationship between the two characters is so well portrayed and lifelike that, as an observer, you just don't want it to end. And the purposely ambiguous ending is something very special. If you want to see something thought provoking, sensitively written, superbly acted and beautifully directed, then Lost In Translation is a must see. If you want something a bit more fluffy and less brain taxing then I suggest you rent some cheesy Richard Curtis rom-com.

Oh dear....lost in translation..more like lost the plot.. - Lost in Translation review by CP Customer

Well after all the hype, me and my partner settled down for what was billed as a rom-com.

What we saw was an admittedly beautifully filmed movie, with an interesting soundtrack to say the least, but after all the hype just what the heck was all the fuss about?

Over one and a half hours of well....not a an awful lot happening. Both of us for some reason sat through it all and then wondered what was the point?

Bill Murray deserves better than this. Definitely a case of the movie did not live up to all the hype.

Good film if you suffer from insomnia or you enjoy watching films with no point to them.

And what the hell DID he whisper into her ear at the end? Not that I care....

Not for the Vin Diesel & thong throngs... - Lost in Translation review by CP Customer

This film is beatifully made & provides a extremely refreshing change from the majority of contemporary moves that are formulaic, badly scripted, littered with corny lines & badly made.

I highly recommend this film to anyone who loves real movies. The acting is superb, the score fantastic & stands out as one of the best films of the new decade thus far...

10/10....
