"Lets never come here again because it will never be as much fun."
A quote from 'Lost in Translation' a favourite movie of mine.
Like a good dream, Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation envelopes you with an aura of fantastic light, moody sound, head-turning love, and a feeling of déjà vu, even though you've probably never been to this neon-fused version of Tokyo. Certainly Bob Harris has not. The 50-ish actor has signed-on for big money shooting whiskey ads instead of doing something good for his career or his long-distance family. Jetlagged, helplessly lost with his Japanese-speaking director and out of sync with the metropolis, Harris (Bill Murray, never better) befriends the married but lovelorn 25-year-old Charlotte (played with heaps of poise by 18-year-old Scarlett Johansson). Even before her photographer husband all but abandons her, she is adrift like Harris but in a total entrapment of youth. How Charlotte and Bill discover their soul mates will be cherished for years to come.
Thats something I would say about my time in Lake George. That summer was so beautiful that trying to repeat it would be little short of a sin. Ha. Maybe I'm going a bit far with that. But it was amazing. I met many good people, interesting people and people I will never forget. That experience is preserved in time, a definete period when we had no worries and plenty of fun. It was paradise, if only for that moment in time. It couldn't go on forever. I felt that it was kind of similar to the book, 'The Beach'.
