Before Sunrise and Before Sunset

I just saw the movie "Before Sunrise". Shortly after, I saw "Before Sunset". I kind of liked both movies. Have you seen them? What did you think?

And by the way, I am a helpless romantic so I do think he stayed in Paris in the second movie...

Before Sunrise is the first one right? I saw that one and I really liked it....I'm a hopeless romantic in denial.

Yes of course he stayed. She says: "You're gonna miss your plane." He says: "I know!"

THE END

I dunno, we just rewatched both of these - my husband thinks it's great that we get to watch a 2 hour conversation, I think it's a bit boring

I didn't find the actress attractive enough. I don't know, it kind of took away some of the credibilty from how she was so interesting to him. How superficial of me.

I only saw the second film. IMO, the characters aren't that interesting enough to watch them talk for 90 or so minutes.

I LOVED them both...the second one answers all the questions, but at the same time leaves you with the whole "Oh man--what the fuck??!" feeling. You know what happens at the end, but still, it leaves you wanting more.

Interesting. You know, in response to brown eyed boy, I thought that the actress wasn't that attractive, and I think that's why I liked her all the more. She did have really pretty lips.

Some of my thoughts are this. I can't believe he actually went back after 6 months! And she didn't show! I liked the characters in the first one better. For some reason, it was just perfect. 2 people at a time in their life where they were both young, and searching. But then the second one I realized that though they were grown up and all, not much had changed I guess. Very interesting. She was way cuter in the first movie too.
I guess it seemed like people watching, you know, like when you go to the mall or my favorite, the bar, and sit and watch people. Only less creepy. hehehe

That I can agree with too.

THE END
not necessarily. at the end of the first film, they agree to meet back at the platform in six months, but it doesn't mean that they did. just because he might miss his scheduled flight doesn't mean he wasn't on a later one. maybe he stayed in paris, maybe he didn't. it's part of the reason these films are so wonderful - all of the uncertainty.

i love both of these films so much, and for reasons other than just the obvious ones. both of these films are brilliant. the acting, the directing, the dialogue. the second one is filmed in real time, giving jesse and celine exactly eighty minutes to reunite and reconnect. it gives the film a certain tension. you can actually feel their time slipping away. there is so much to say, and never enough time.

i could go on and on about these films, but i'm afraid i wouldn't be interesting enough, or - god forbid - attractive enough to hold your attention.



it's true that these films are nothing more than conversations between two people. we get to watch, and we get to listen. that's all.

but for me, that's enough.
