Like her debut film, The Virgin Suicides, Coppola creates a beautiful-looking film with depth and texture, along with a couple of outstanding performances from its lead actors.

A marvellous, exquisite movie.
February 12, 2016
Sofia Coppola's sophomore film (following the gently assured The Virgin Suicides) is another exploration of delicate relationships and uncommunicated frustrations, this one in a beautifully composed atmosphere of isolation.
July 29, 2013
Depicts a very specific mental state too shaded and delicate for most movies to feel comfortable approaching it.
December 25, 2010
Excellent but mature film about finding a connection.
December 28, 2009
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.
June 13, 2009
...a deceptively simple study in unrequited attraction that succeeds in spite of minor problems with neglected sub-plots.
April 29, 2009
An excellent top notch gem with beautiful direction courtesy of Sofia Coppola...
October 18, 2008
Wonderfully warm and witty.

Lost in Translation revels in contradictions. It's a comedy about melancholy, a romance without consummation, a travelogue that rarely hits the road.
October 5, 2008
Very much a mood piece, the film's deft balance of humor and poignancy makes it both a pleasurable and melancholy experience.
October 5, 2008
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.
November 1, 2007
With this film it becomes clear that Sofia Coppola is a filmmaker with eyes all her own.
August 13, 2007
Working this time with her own story, Coppola lets it relax and breathe, devoting herself to moods and moments.
July 14, 2007
This is another step in Mr. Murray's career and one that hopefully gets him the recognition he deserves.
June 21, 2007
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.
May 23, 2007
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.
January 24, 2007
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.
August 8, 2006
Perfectly acted. Immeasurably funny. A great second outing for director Sofia Coppola.
June 24, 2006
So far as the central relationship goes, the film is almost European in its subtlety and nuance. Cinematic cherry blossom.
