Lost in Translation

Now this movie was a pleasant surprise! Lost in Translation is the story of two strangers meeting in an upscale hotel in Tokyo, both being there without really wanting to be there, bored out of their minds, discovering each other and sharing each other's lifes in a very honest and tender way.

The two main actors are impressive and deliver Oscar-worthy performances. I was especially touched by how open and honest Bill Murray comes across as an aging actor. He is touching and funny at the same time.

The third star in the movie was Tokyo - this movie was very close to my own experience of Tokyo... I recognized several scenes with the characters out in town as my quintessential Tokyo moments. And the city shines!
