In a potential relationship, my highest hope is to discover the deepest emotional/philosophical/intellectual connection possible between people. This movie's characters spend most of its running time doing just that via conversation. With extraordinarily natural writing, directing, and acting, "Before Sunrise" conveys the joy and urgency of such an experience better than any other movie I've seen.

A good movie

I can't believe it took me so much time to finally re-watch this flick. Seriously, I must have seen it around the time that it was released, about 20 years ago, and I never saw it again. There is however something else going on when you watch it now, there is the knowledge that you will be allowed to see those characters again 10 years later and again 20 years later which is just really awesome.

These films are timeless, third time I’ve seen it and its just as good as when I watched it the first time. It captures the moments of when you meet a person you like perfectly. The dialogue are excellent and the acting is very natural.

Before Sunrise is a passionate and intelligent romance between a young American (Jesse) and a French student (Celine). A chance encounter on the train incites intrigue, and Jesse provocatively suggests that Celine postpones her return to France and embarks instead on a spontaneous expedition to Vienna. In the course of their 14-hour relationship, the two share in their love for the unrehearsed and their appreciation for the unexpected as they explore in a powerful meeting of hearts and minds.

"Never have I ever been so riveted and so happy to watch people meet each other for the first time. Richard Linklaters' Best Film to Date in my opinion."

"9.1, Netflix Ethan Hawke ja Julie Delpy tapaavat junassa ja päättävät viettää päivän ja yön yhdessä Wienissä. Kaksikon kemiat pelaavat hienosti yhteen ja keskusteluja on mielenkiintoista kuunnella samalla Wienin katukuvaa katsellen. Dialogi koostuu Linklaterille tyypillisesti päähenkilöiden havainnoista ja mielipiteistä ja näihin pohjautuvista keskusteluista, ja hyvä niin. Vaikka koinkin Hawken ekstrovertin hahmon aika ajoin jotenkin tungettelevaksi, en voi väittää etteikö "

"Julie Delphy and Ethan Hawke I wonder if by the year’s end, the final installment of “The Celine and Jesse Trilogy” aka Before Midnight, will find itself in the Golden Globes’ Musical or Comedy category, and clean up there? Each film in the series is effortlessly romantic, there is an extremely memorable song in one (“A Waltz for a Night” which is referenced as a major plot point in the latest), and despite being intellectual and at times bracingly dramatic, they happen to also be ex"

30 From 95: My Favorite Films From 1995 (30 movies items)

"A love story that indulges in the idea of the kinds of bonds that can form if two people actually tried to communicate in a manner mired in bared-boned honesty (to which, I must confess, the "come-down-to-reality" part of my male brain wants to smirkly say "yeah....rrriight...") and with an intention of true understanding. Never-the-less, the end result is movie of that reflects the way romance between two should be like, instead of the fairytale process that the standard Hollywood machine likes"

PS : I actually saw it again with my wife recently and she really liked it a lot. For her, it was the best movie in this trilogy and, I have to admit it, it really grew on me. Each time I watch this m
