Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson play two disillusioned souls “lost” in Tokyo. As they find themselves, they also find each other.
With two very strong personalities in the principle roles, it’s hard for this area of the film to go wrong. Especially since either one or both of them is on-screen almost the entire film.
Interesting sets that are on the receiving end of less than interesting photography.
Really good soundtrack combined with cool post-production effects give the movie a pretty neat persona from a sensory point of view.
