Lost in translation

Culture clash movies are practically a genre in themselves. They can subvert every known genre in moviedom and turn its conventions upside down, making it a culture clash movie instead. Wasn’t „King Kong“ one of the first culture clash movies? From high drama to absurdist comedy, from harsh documentary to psychologically nuanced auteur cinema to roaring blockbuster, the culture clash movie tells us a lot about human experience and the bond we all share. Some of them are, of course, heavy on cliché, but the good ones don’t have to rely on that. A culture clash doesn’t have to turn into a culture war either. Anyone for a „remix“?

EN – Lost in the city (of Tokyo). A middle-aged and mildly cynical former movie star and a somewhat neglected young woman cross paths. An understated masterpiece full of poetic moments. Fresh-faced Scarlett Johansson and deadpan Bill Murray form an irresistible couple.

DE – Verloren in der japanischen Metropole. Ein in die Jahre gekommener Schauspieler und eine vereinsamte junge Frau lernen sich an der Hotelbar kennen und verbringen ihre Zeit miteinander. Das Paar Murray-Johansson ist unwiderstehlich, der Film ein kleines Juwel voller poetischer Momente.

FR – Dans la métropole de Tokyo, un acteur vieillissant en jet lag, un brin cynique, et une jeune femme désœuvrée et seule font connaissance et sympathisent. Un film délicat et poétique, empreint d’un humour subtil porté par le tandem irrésistible Bill Murray-Scarlett Johansson.
