25º – Lost in Translation (Sofia Coppola, 2003)A middle-aged man and a young woman, by mere chance, meet during a trip to Tokyo. In the place, always contrasting a claudicant figure of solitude, the two will form a strange bond of friendship, changing their ways of facing the world’s instances. ‘Lost in Translation’ takes advantage of a cold and melancholic atmosphere to tell their story, bringing a different novel that completely escapes the common conceptions.

One of the most emblematic films of the novel genre of the 21st century, ‘Closer’, distinguishes the most different meanders that comprise a relationship, never attenuating its history by bringing possible harmful behaviors in its characters.
