Lost in Translation

Yay! Got to see it this time (theatre was still -very- crowded and my enjoyment was detracted from by my neighbour's halitosis).

A melancholy movie that left me feeling a little empty. The first time I've seen Bill Murray in a 'straight' role, and he still managed to be damn funny. My companion felt it was a little cliched. The main parts were acted with sensitivity, which for me saved it. Another of those movies to just see and decide for yourself. I enjoyed it.

Other random observations for today...

Dogs give good hugs.

We value the emotional input of others above our own way too much.

The weather people were wrong again.

There are not enough Mexican restaurants in Wellington (recommendations please)..
