This movie is based on the theme of cultural chock faced by persons in a country which is new and also with an unknown language. The film beautifully captures the moments of loneliness and solitude. Bill Murray is perfect as an artist who comes to Japan for doing an advertisement of a wine company. He doesn’t know any body in the country and also does not understand the language. So he is all alone there until she meets Scarlett Johnson who has just arrived in the same hotel with her husband on a business tour. She is also in the same state as her husband is too busy with his professional assignments. Both find a companion in each other and how they spend their days in Japan is the main plot of the movie. A movie with wordless expressions filmed beautifully. Some viewers may find it a little slow paced but still it’s a movie not to be missed.
Directed By Sofia Coppola
Starring : Scarlett Johnson & Bill Murray
