LOST IN TRANS­LA­TION

ELEVEN, Fri­day, 10.05pm, PG ( 2003)

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

Stamp­ing her­self as a tal­ent to ri­val her great fa­ther, Fran­cis Ford Coppola, Sofia Coppola turned to Tokyo. In a role made for his brand of comic pathos, Bill Mur­ray plays a has- been film star in the Ja­panese cap­i­tal for a pub­lic­ity job. Cooped up in a ho­tel, he forms a bond with the beau­ti­ful wife ( Scar­lett Jo­hans­son, pic­tured) of a pho­tog­ra­pher. In­cor­po­rat­ing Ja­panese life to dreamy ef­fect, Coppola wall­pa­pers the set­ting with lush cin­e­matog­ra­phy and an am­bi­ent sound­track to cap­ture the hazy con­scious state of the two dis­placed souls.
