Bob’s message to Charlotte – Lost in Translation
Sofia Coppola ‘s Lost in Translation is one of the most melancholic and masterful romances of the 21st century but the film really cements its place as a classic with its final scene.
After hiding their emotions from each other for the whole movie Bill Murray’s Bob finally stops Scarlett Johansson’s Charlotte as she is about to leave for good and kisses her before whispering something in her ear in one of recent cinema’s most tender moments.
People have tried various different approaches to figuring out exactly what it is that he whispered and if you take the time to have a google search you will no doubt find some entertaining theories.
The most believable and perhaps the best of these is that it is in fact unscripted and that Bill Murray, in true Bill Murray fashion decided to improvise the line so unless he decides to spill the beans anytime soon this may go down this question may never truly be answered.
