Posting again because I am currently watching LIT just at the end of year. I love this movie so much.

Watched it this evening ( UK GMT) I watched the blu ray and turned the brightness and contrast right down to see how much detail i could achieve. Some scenes previously ignored became enormously beautiful and hypnotic.

I've only watched this film twice this year... and it's not nearly enough!

The last time I watched Lost in Translation was at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. It played in the theater in conjunction with a photography exhibit focused on Tokyo. It was only my second time seeing it on a "big screen," so my anticipation was high. Not surprisingly, anticipation was met with absolute awe. It was magical.

While I am hesitant about watching it with others, I did invite my Best Friend along. Out of everybody I know, he is the only one who appreciates Sofia's work as much as I do. (Most are too impatient with the film's gentle pace and ambiguity.) We both enjoyed the film very much. (I may or may not have mirrored Charlotte's head falling to Bob's shoulder as it happened onscreen.) It was a wonderful day. :)

That sounds amazing! What I would give to see it on the big screen, sadly when it came out I wasn't open enough to new film :( . But if it shows in the UK on the big screen, Im there.

The first time i saw this movie was in 2007. I was going through a tough time and my best friend invited me to his house to watch it on DVD. The only thing i can vividly remember was smiling for the first time in a while back then. I seemed to have forgotten about LiT until catching the last 20 minutes on a prime channel. Something about the scene when Bob and Charlotte are in the bar after the fire alarm and Mark Willms is playing So Into You.

Tried to find the movie version of that song online and that's when i stumbled upon a thread on this forum. Just re-watched LiT after hearing the ultimate soundtrack that Fox compiled. I like watching at night when it is most quiet. It allows me to absorb it all in.

I saw LiT when it first came out, but as I was very young then, its themes and tone did not resonate with me at all. I do remember enjoying the scene where Bob's stuck on the elliptical.

During the last years of high school, however, it clicked in a big way for me. And I kept coming back to it over years when I was in university. The scene with Charlotte staring at the ceiling, telling Bob that she's "stuck"... I think every 20-something can empathize with that.

I'm finally graduating in a few weeks, can't think of a more fitting time to watch this yet again. :)

I'm glad it's grown on you, I think it is a film that has an appeal at different stages of your life.

I watched it again after not for maybe a year or two. I didn't have time to watch it all at once so I watched it
in 15 to 20 min snippets at night. Each day I looked forward to which part I was going to be seeing at night.
The film is really a great journey in a short time and still a great journey to go on with them!

Middle of the night for me basically, watching again to feel that feeling.

Just finished watching it yet again, and not much has changed for me since my first post in this forum 11 years ago (back on page 3) :shock: . Wow. It’s nice to know this place is still up and running; thanks Bob San! 15 years in, and I hope more and more people begin to view this movie as a timeless classic (as most of us recognized years ago, if not immediately...myself excluded from the latter bunch actually). Either way, thanks for the masterpiece Sofia.

I think maybe it's been a couple of years now since I've watched this film. It's a reminder of a different time in my life when I travelled to new places, often by myself for the adventure. I'm sure when I watch it again it'll bring memories back. I never got to watch this in the cinema - I was at the cinema with a friend but 21 grams was showing instead. I think I'd like to see it on the big screen at least once, but I'll have to look out for screenings for some time.
