An intense upgrade on Before Sunrise, it is far less naive and sentimental while still rich with gorgeous dialogues and complicated emotion line. Now Jesse and Celine have to deal with problems the adult life brings, such as an utter disenchantment with love and feebling hope for miracles to happen. But this time, with sun beams playing on their faces and real feelings bursting out, you know it's just the beginning.
I loved listening to their conversations, I'd love to have more of these in real life. And also I prefer this one to the previous. Can't wait for Before Midnight.
I could probably sit and listen to these two talk for hours. Conversations about how that one night together 9 years ago really impacted them, how emotionally messed up Celine was by basing all her relationships on romanticism with Jesse, and how Jesse is stuck in a marriage with a 4 year old (whom he adores). Both of the Before films had some sort of emotional impact on me, Sunrise with the shots of the places these two had traversed at the end, Celine singing her song to Jesse,afterwards dancing to Nina Simone. So, after that ending what is Before Midnight going to lead us?
If Before Sunrise is the ironic 20-something, then Before Sunset is its world-weary older cousin. The realism means even a cynic can appreciate this film, but it's not quite as good as the first one. Looking forward to seeing Before Midnight and figuring out what happens next. We've seen love and sex already—is death next on the list?
Not only is this a great sequel to a great movie, but it makes me appreciate the original even more!
É sobre o amor, sobre as pessoas, sobre a filosofia, sobre a política, sobre os sentimentos, sobre as relações, sobre os lugares e, principalmente, sobre o tempo. E, possivelmente, seja meu filme favorito.
Linklater, Delpy, and Hawke are all keenly tuned to the rhythms of conversation, love, and life. There's a moment when Celine talks about the sadness she feels when even mundane relationships end. As she confesses this, while Paris slowly glides past behind her, her words seem to cut right to the heart of all life's bittersweet contradictions. A beautiful and simple film.
AM I THE ONLY ONE AROUND HERE WHO THINK BEFORE SUNSET IS BETTER THAN BEFORE SUNRISE?!
never wanted this one to end, one of my favourites of Ethan, which is funny because he annoyed me so much in Before Sunrise. So glad that there is going to be a 3rd film - hopefully next year. It would be so much fun =)
Similar in structure to its predecessor,but more mature and complex in its themes, among its many glorious achievements is the poignant depiction of how time changes the aspirations of everyone. The final 20 minutes of the movie are pure cinematic nirvana.
Absolutely sublime. Tonight I watched it for probably the third time, and I don't think I've ever loved it more. It's easily one of my favourite films.
