    Don't stall about seeing Sofia Coppola's altogether remarkable Lost in Translation. It's a class-act liftoff for the fall movie season. Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson give performances that will be talked about for years. show more

    Edward Guthmann San Francisco Chronicle

    A delicate, beautifully observed study of impossible romance, Lost in Translation is one of the best films this year. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    Romantic comedies with two low-key leads can be asking for trouble, but one senses that the actors must have clicked on some fundamental level. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Giddily funny in a singularly American idiom, and shot, by Lance Acord, with an eagle eye for cultural absurdities, Ms. Coppola's film is also a meditation on love and longing, shot through with a sensibility that's all the more surprising for being so unfashionably tender. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    A smartly written, confidently directed film that delivers big laughs while developing two of the year's most earnest characters and some of its most rewarding sentiments. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    The movie contains priceless slapstick from Bill Murray, finely tuned performances by Murray and the beautiful Scarlett Johansson and a visual and aural design that cultivates a romantic though melancholy mood. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    Longer on atmosphere and observation than on story, but you don't mind: Coppola maintains her quietly charged tone with a certainty that would be unbelievable in a second film if you didn't suspect genetics had a hand. show more

    Simply put, Sofia Copolla's Lost in Translation is an amazing motion picture. show more

    Story of the empty lives of two shallow people who share their emptiness.Over-rated. Nothing outstanding about it. Entertaining somewhat.
