Watch: Lost in Translation 2003 123movies, Full Movie Online – Middle-aged American movie star Bob Harris is in Tokyo to film a personal endorsement Suntory whiskey ad solely for the Japanese market. He is past his movie star prime, but his name and image still have enough cachet for him to have gotten this lucrative $2 million job. He has an unsatisfying home life where his wife Lydia follows him wherever he goes – in the form of messages and faxes – for him to deal with the minutiae of their everyday lives, while she stays at home to look after their kids. Staying at the same upscale hotel is fellow American, twenty-something recent Yale Philosophy graduate Charlotte, her husband John, an entertainment still photographer, who is on assignment in Japan. As such, she is largely left to her own devices in the city, especially when his job takes him out of Tokyo. Both Bob and Charlotte are feeling lost by their current situations, which are not helped by the cultural barriers they feel in Tokyo, those cultural barriers extending far beyond just not knowing the language. After a few chance encounters in the hotel, they end up spending much of their time hanging out together, each helping the other deal with their feelings of loss in their current lives. The friendship that develops between the two, which is not always a bumpy-free one, may be just for this specific place and time, but it may also have long lasting implications..
Plot: Two lost souls visiting Tokyo — the young, neglected wife of a photographer and a washed-up movie star shooting a TV commercial — find an odd solace and pensive freedom to be real in each other’s company, away from their lives in America.

True love transcends sexual expression

RELEASED IN 2003 and written & directed by Sofia Coppola, “Lost in Translation” was a big hit in 2003-2004. It’s about an aging actor, Bob Harris (Bill Murray), who’s in Tokyo doing commercials for a week. His home-life is mundane and he’s experiencing a bit of the mid-life crisis. He runs into an attractive 20 year-old something woman, Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), who’s in Tokyo with her photog husband (), but he’s gone most of the time and takes her for granted.

This is a mature, semi-arty film and you have to be in the right mode/maturity level to appreciate it. I said “maturity level” and not “age” because some people are pretty mature at 16 while others are completely immature at 50. For me, the story, music and visuals pulled me into these characters’ temporary world for the 102-minute runtime.

The film succeeds as an amusing social commentary and a deep love story, as well as a visual/musical delight. I’ll only focus on the deep love element. It’s been noted that the story originated from Sofia’s experience with an aging actor when she was younger, possibly Harrison Ford. Sofia is obviously Charlotte, while Charlotte’s husband is Sofia’s ex and Anna Faris plays the role of the other woman, which would be Cameron Diaz in real life. So there’s a lot of reality in the picture.

But it’s not just a cathartic piece. Sofia has some potent insights to offer on the nature of true romantic love. For one, love transcends age difference (Bob is about 35 years older than Charlotte). For another, it’s possible to be married and experience romantic love for another. Not that this ever justifies adultery, it’s just a fact. As the story progresses you’ll see how comfortable Bob and Charlotte are with each other, how they look into each other’s eyes, the windows of the soul, in a profoundly naked sense. This can happen in the flash of a moment where the two people just KNOW, or it can take place over a period of time, as is the case with Bob and Charlotte (which is a handful of days). They see the same things and speak the same language, and I don’t mean English. But this presents a conundrum for Bob. Bob COULD take advantage of Charlotte because she’s so lonely in a sea of people, which is one of the movie’s themes; she’s also inexperienced and vulnerable. Will he or won’t he take advantage?

***SPOILER ALERT*** Don’t read further if you haven’t seen the film.

If Bob loves Charlotte so much, not to mention his wife & kids, why does he have a one-night stand with the lounge singer (Catherine Lambert)? Bob slept with her to release sexual tension that had been building up between him and Charlotte. This was a moral failure, but keep in mind he was drunk (another failure but, have pity, he was going through a mid-life crisis). While all this is obvious, it goes deeper…

Bob could have taken advantage of Charlotte if he wanted to but didn’t because he genuinely loved her, which is revealed at the end. Bob could sleep with the singer because he didn’t love her (not that it justifies his actions). Simply put, true love transcends sexual expression and sexual union does not equal love.

The ending is powerful and tear-inducing. No CGI, explosion or action stunt can compare. It’s just an older man and a too-young woman embracing in the midst of 20 million strangers. Tears flow, kisses are given and unheard words are whispered. They could never be a couple, even if they weren’t married, and they know they’ll never see each other again, at least on this physical plane, but their love has been expressed and will be treasured for eternity.


Review By: Wuchak

The first time I watched Lost in Translation, many years ago, I really liked it. I am partial to quiet movies, which feature a good ensemble cast, wit and good dialogue. Often, as with this movie, the story is told simply from start to finish without complex bounces back and forth with flashbacks, or made complicated with multiple perspectives. And in fact, I bought a used copy of Lost in Translation on DVD.

After all this time I finally watched it again recently. I still like the movie. I love watching Bill Murray and he gives a fine restrained performance of an actor past his prime and riding on name recognition. Scarlett Johansson does great also. They are witty and display a subtle sense of humor.

Still, I did not like it as much as I remember from before; something seemed lacking. Then I watched the Behind the Scenes extra video. You know, The Making of… and I realized I likedjust as much as I did the movie itself. It made me think that maybe the movie was too laid back. When Scarlett’s character Charlotte spoke to her husband, they were quiet and civil, when she spoke to Bill Murray as Bob, they were quiet and civil, and when Bob spoke to his wife on the phone back home they were quiet and civil, even when she was clearly getting irritated. Perhaps the film would have benefited from a little passion, a little more intensity here and there.

I am glad I watched it a second time, but I don’t expect I will hold onto the DVD for a future viewing.

Sometimes the simplest stories make the best films
I went through an array of emotions and expressions watching this film; most of them centred around how bizarre I thought it was, yet it was like a good book I simply couldn’t put down even if the film itself lived up to its title at times.

This is by far the best work Bill Murray has done, and it will be a pleasant surprise for many to see him find a new (to me, anyway) side to his ability as an actor. He captures the role with such precision that you don’t realise this is the same guy who, dare I even mention it in the same breath, provided the voice of Garfield last year. You see a few traces of his characteristic smugness every once in a while, but by and large the Bill Murray you see is a lot more serious… and seriously damned good.

It’s such a simple story… unhappy married man meets unhappy married woman in a place neither of them are familiar with, and suddenly realise that they’re all the other has got at least for the time being. In an age where Hollywood is trying (mostly unsuccessfully) to scare and shock us with something new at every turn, Sofia Coppola takes what should be the premise for a typical chick flick and turns it into something that anyone who has ever experienced an emotion of any description can watch and appreciate.

A brilliant film in any language.

Give It A Second Chance, If Needed
I admit I found it disappointing on the first look but I decided to give it a second chance and was glad I did. Only then did I appreciate Bill Murray’s great performance and the wonderful photography in this movie. The vivid colors in here are really something to see. It’s odd how some movies are so much better the second time around.

This is a very, very low key film about loneliness and about being in a culture that is totally foreign to you where few people speak your language. In this case, it’s Americans – or at least the main character of film (Bill Murray) – trying to cope in Japan.

The film is almost two-in-one: a travelogue and a story. The former because you really get the feel of what it is like to be a non-Japanese speaking person in that country and what the customs of the people are in Japan, at least to some degree….and it’s interesting.

Murray is the star of the story and any plaudits he’s received for his performance are well- deserved. His facial expressions alone are classic! Scarlet Johannson is the female lead and she, too, is interesting to watch. These two make for a fascinating “odd couple.”
