What Else Was Lost in Translation?

The New York Times recently ran an article on "Lost in Translation," a new movie by Sofia Coppola, that will ring true with anyone who's had to deal with a Japanese interpreter. The comic melodrama stars Bill Murray as a washed-up movie star, in Tokyo to shoot a Suntory whiskey commercial, and the article looks at one particular scene where actor and director struggle with the communication barriers that we all face here in Japan at one time or another.
