Dir: Richard Linklater | USA | 2004 | 77 mins
Cast | Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy, Albert Delpy, Marie Pillet
Picking up the story nine years after Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Céline (Julie Delpy) first met in Vienna and spent a romantic night together, Before Sunset sees them reunite in Paris. Jesse is now a married writer in France to publicise his debut novel, while Céline is an environmental activist in a relationship with a photojournalist. Now, with a few hours to spare before his flight home, they wander through the city streets, flirting, laughing, commiserating and circling the question: what would have happened if they had acted on their feelings back then?
Witty and poignant, the second instalment of Linklater’s Before Trilogy is a disarming balance of romance and realism, with marvellous performances from Hawke and Delpy, a subtle, playful script (which they collaborated with Linklater on) and an ingenious, tantalising ending.
