Lost In Translation

Ok, this has been troubling me for a while now. I finally got round to watching Lost In Traslation a couple of weeks ago now. I fully realise that it's taken me a while, and that I'm not bang up to date with my movies. But there you go.
So I enjoyed the movie. Thought both Bill Murray and Scarlett Johanssen were excellent. I'd liked Sofia Coppola's only other film The Virgin Suicides too.
Prior to watching Lost in Translation I'd never read any reviews and during its release was obviously blissfully aware of any hype surrounding it, so I just took it as it came.
Anyhow, over the last week or so I kept thinking about the whisper......

For those of you who haven't seen the movie, look away now, as they say.

Those of you who have know exactly what I'm talking about.
So tonight I'm thinking about it.....the whisper that is. And I decide to google 'Lost in Translation'.
And what comes up? ...... about 45 million pages for 'the whisper'.
It wasn't just me then! Sofia Coppola obviously knew what she was doing.
I never read any of them, so I'm still in the dark......

But I just wanted to ask anybody else who might be in a position the same as I'm in..... what do you think he whispered to her?


  1. I'm fairly sure it was something like, "Have you got that Jesus and Mary Chain lp wi Just Like Honey on it? Reckon it's called Psychocandy or somethin."

    Well, maybe. Good fleem though, eh? I loved the karaoke where Bill Murray really couldnae sing and yet still made me want to greet with the pure emotion in his voice. Is that a bit sappy?

  2. Lol..... yer just a big fanny Naldo.
    Similar to masel.
    Speaking of fannies I approached your post today with some trepidation......

  3. I had heard of the movie, only just discovered who the actors were :P

  4. I haven't seen the film and I stopped reading where you said to so I have no idea what you two pussies are talking about... but I'd just like to say that I like your new pics, Neil.

  5. Thank you Toaster, glad you like them. But just for the sake of clarity I think it might be wise to distinguish between the terms pussy and fanny here. Naldo and I may well be a couple o fannies, but I think I speak for him as well when I say I take slight umbrage at being at being referred to as a pussy.....

  6. Lol..... now you're trying to put words into my mouth.....

  7. I'm more of a dog man masel.

    In Embra, a fanny is just a general term of jocular abuse, whereas a pussy is someone who is easily afraid. The latter is quite offensive while the former's just a wee laugh.
