The love stories featured in this movie are so wrong and consuming that each person had to erase the person they love from their memory completely. That choice has some serious consequences and this movie is one that you just have to watch for yourself.
Lost In Translation
This is another movie that’s just two lonely people trying to find some happiness. Both of them are pretty unsatisfied with their lives, but they find an escape out on the streets of Tokyo. The love between the two is wrong but the fun times they experience is one you need to see.
This movie is about music bringing people together. And it’s also about finding that one person that you really find yourself whenever you’re near them. I can’t really explain how good the movie is or what exactly it is that makes it good, it just is what it is. The two stars have undeniable chemistry and both are musicians in real life, not actors which makes the performance all that more meaningful to me personally.
