Antagony & Ecstasy

Depicts a very specific mental state too shaded and delicate for most movies to feel comfortable approaching it.

Excellent but mature film about finding a connection.

Modamag.com

A relationship picture with elegant connective tissue; it's brittle and real, focused on the nuances of body language and unspoken desire, while indulging in a cheeky bit of knowing absurdity when the mood strikes.

...a deceptively simple study in unrequited attraction that succeeds in spite of minor problems with neglected sub-plots.

Lost in Translation revels in contradictions. It's a comedy about melancholy, a romance without consummation, a travelogue that rarely hits the road.

Very much a mood piece, the film's deft balance of humor and poignancy makes it both a pleasurable and melancholy experience.

Transcends its initial culture clash comic riffs to evolve into something altogether more moving by the end. As a result, it's a work of considerable power and pathos.

With this film it becomes clear that Sofia Coppola is a filmmaker with eyes all her own.

Working this time with her own story, Coppola lets it relax and breathe, devoting herself to moods and moments.

This is another step in Mr. Murray's career and one that hopefully gets him the recognition he deserves.

Film Scouts

The whole tale is told with a dreamy, jet-lagged feel, that part wonder, part nasueous feeling brought about by significant travel. Jet lag as a metaphor for love, a delicious combination. Simply a must-see film.

Princeton Town Topics

Alternately laugh-out-loud silly and profoundly moving, kudos to Sofia Coppola for managing to capture an undeniable chemistry between Murray and his 18 year-old co-star, despite a certain asexuality.

Sofia Coppola's accomplished sophomore work is a personal, melancholy film, based on her own experience, and benefiting from strong chemistry between Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson.

So far as the central relationship goes, the film is almost European in its subtlety and nuance. Cinematic cherry blossom.

Film Threat

From the casting choices to the soul-soothing musical score to glimpses into Japanese visual culture, it's obvious that Sofia pays careful attention that each element of the film stands strong alone, but can also contribute to the whole.

Film Threat

Like so many things made in Japan, Sofia Coppola's new film is smaller and less costly than its standard American counterpart while at the same time superior in most important respects.

A magnificent picture because it specifically goes out of its way to avoid the clichés and elements would usually expect to see when watching this kind of boy meets girl movie.
