The Silent Goodbye
The scene: In the memorable and beautiful ending to the movie, Bob, middle aged actor and Charlotte, young woman who met in Tokyo few days before and formed a friendship, say goodbye to each other. Bob catches up with Charlotte on the busy street, to her big happiness and surprise, hugs her and whispers something in her ear, which we never hear but we get the sense it's something reassuring. Then they share a kiss and say "bye". After they walk away in opposite directions they turn around, to catch one last glimpse of each other and walk with a smile on their faces.
