Oscar-winner Lost in Translation, one of the most widely acclaimed films of the 2000s, deals with the unexpected relationship between two Americans who feel out of place in a city far from their homes. Experienced actor Bob has come to Tokyo to star in a whiskey advertisement, while young newlywed Charlotte is there to accompany her constantly busy photographer husband. Losing their way in the foreign atmosphere of Tokyo, the two characters meet by chance in a hotel and share their loneliness under the city's neon lights.

Tokyo significantly influences the visual language of the film with its aesthetics and cinematography while also serving as a setting that underscores the main themes of alienation and the need for connection. The chaos, glittering crowded streets, language barrier, and cultural alienation cause the characters to feel lost both physically and emotionally. At the same time, the city becomes a surprising point of intersection where Bob and Charlotte find each other and form a meaningful connection.
