Lost in Translation

4 out of 5 snowstones
When traveling, you sometimes find yourself in a situation where you are waiting, along with everyone around you. The situation creates a strange sort of suspended life, in which people reveal themselves slightly.
I used to wish I could describe this feeling; now I just say, "You know, like Lost in Translation". The whole movie floats in mid-air, and the entire city of Tokyo is the waiting area. Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson carry the entire movie, doing a great job. Their undeveloped romantic relationship reminded me of Brief Encounter, and it is as nicely understated as that British classic.
