Lost in Translation mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Bob puts Charlotte into her bed, he first lays her down with her skirt slightly pulled down so that her belly button is showing. In the next shot, the skirt is pulled up to meet the bottom of her shirt-barely any skin is visible.

Visible crew/equipment: When Bob is taking a bath and receives a phone call from his wife, a microphone is visible in the upper left, coming from behind a wall for a few seconds.

Continuity mistake: In the Karaoke scene, when it's Charlotte's turn, one briefly sees the number 601 on the door to the cabin. Later, when she's waiting outside and Bob leaves the room it's the number 602.

Trivia: Even though she did not win an Oscar for "Best Director," Sofia Coppola became the first American female director and the second female director to be nominated for that award. No woman had ever won "Best Director." Interesting enough, she was nominated nearly exactly a decade after the first female director (for "The Piano") was nominated.

Question: Do Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson do their own singing in the karaoke scene? The first time Murray sings it sounds a lot better than the second, and Johansson's singing sounds nothing like her speaking voice, which is why I'm curious.

Chosen answer: Yes, according to IMDb both are credited with doing their own singing for this movie.

Question: Do Charlotte and Bob end up sleeping together? While the obvious answer is no, when they are going up the elevator the night before Bob is leaving, notice the jacket he is wearing. It's the same jacket that Charlotte gives to him the next morning which he says she "stole" from him. While it doesn't necessarily say they did, they obviously did something together after the elevator scene.

Chosen answer: If they did, it was never said or seen during the duration of the movie. Usually if this happens, it means the event did not occur.

Question: Could anyone hear what Bob whispers into Charlotte's ear near the end of the film, just before he kisses her?

Chosen answer: You're not meant to. Leaves you to decide what he says.
