I finally saw Sofia Coppola’s LOST IN TRANSLATION, and what a treat it was. It’s a definite must-see for anyone with an interest in portrayals of modern Japan. I of course loved the setting, but the characters were great too, and I fell off my chair laughing at the MATTHEW’S BEST HIT TV sequence. And what a soundtrack! I mean, how can you not love a film that includes tracks by My Bloody Valentine! But the song that is now stuck in my head is Happy End’s “Kaze wo Atsumete.” Great, great track. I need to get my hands on one of their albums.
