| Lost in Translation start endearing
Amélie (Pauline Etienne) was born in Japan. She always wanted to be Japanese despite born to Belgian parents and moving back to Belgium when she was five. She's 20 and tries to immerse herself in the Japanese culture. She gets hired by Rinri as a private French tutor. He's her only student. They grow closer together. She gets an one-year contract with a large Japanese company. She hates her job and Rinri proposes to her. She's reluctant and then the 2011 tsunami hits Japan.

Most of this has a charming Lost in Translation feel. The romance also has its charms. Pauline Etienne has an endearing wide-eyed persona. Her character does a turn in her attitude. There should be more to that part of the story. The tsunami is a splash of cold water from the real world. The last act is a little abrupt. Overall, this is a charming little movie.
