“Lost in Translation” is one of those movies that’s beautiful because of its simplicity. I keep saying this, but this is just the proof that you don’t need a lot to make a great film. Here are the best quotes from “Lost in Translation”. (And now I want to rewatch it….)
Bob: It gets a whole lot more complicated when you have kids.
Charlotte: It's scary.
Bob: The most terrifying day of your life is the day the first one is born.
Charlotte: Nobody ever tells you that.
Bob: Your life, as you know it... is gone. Never to return. But they learn how to walk, and they learn how to talk... and you want to be with them. And they turn out to be the most delightful people you will ever meet in your life.
Charlotte: That's nice.
Charlotte: Let's never come here again because it would never be as much fun.
Bob: I don't want to leave.
Charlotte: So don't. Stay here with me. We'll start a jazz band.
Charlotte: 25 years. That's uh, well it's impressive.
Bob: Well you figure, you sleep one-third of your life, that knocks out eight years of marriage right there. So you're, y'know, down to 16 in change. You know you're just a teenager, at marriage, you can drive it but there's still the occasional accident.
Stills Photographer: You know double-O-7?
Bob: He drinks martinis, but all right.
Charlotte: [Bob is recollecting when he first saw Charlotte, in the elevator] Did I scowl at you?
Bob: No, you smiled.
Charlotte: I did?
Bob: Yes, it was a complete accident. A freak. I haven't seen it since. Just that one time.
Bob: Like that, but bigger... bigger... mm-hmm... well, not that big!
Charlotte: You're probably just having a mid-life crisis. Did you buy a Porsche yet?
Charlotte: That was the worst lunch.
Bob: So bad. What kind of restaurant makes you cook your own food?
