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.

[Murray] can still do more with a raised eyebrow than anyone since Groucho Marx, but he's mellower and sometimes slightly poignant.

...charged with some of the same inchoate longing of Hiroshima, Mon Amour and employs some of the same guerilla production tactics of Godard's Breathless

Johansson [plays Charlotte] perfectly, with the kind of intelligent beauty that could bring Krzysztof Kieslowski out of his grave to cast her in a new Colors film.

The performances are a bit too underplayed to suit me, but the melancholy film is both funny and fascinating.

In Japan, the most extreme delicacy goes hand in hand with garishness, and Coppola offers up both for our delectation. It's a heady, hallucinatory combo.

As in Rushmore...kindness is the underlying trait of Murray's character.

The intensity of Lost in Translation lies in its smaller, seemingly insignificant, quieter moments. In many ways Coppola's film exhibits marks of classic European art cinema.

May-December romances have been done to death, but Coppola's tender touch and knack for nuance practically reinvents the genre.

Like the sort of fleeting, quietly intense relationship that it portrays, Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation amounts to a handful of stolen moments -- and a lot more than the sum of them.

The ending packs an emotional wallop, a moment as magical as anything you will see at the movies this year.

The movie should have been a masterpiece of mood and character, and it almost is, revolving as it does around two wonderful performances.

Lost in Translation will bring in the new wave of young filmmakers who realise the power of emotion and introspection and the audience thinking for themselves.

Murray has been singing songs to us ever since his old days on Saturday Night Live, but never like this.

El detalle del susurro pasará a la historia como uno de los elementos narrativos más hermosos que se han filmado jamás...
