Before Sunset

Before Sunset ★★★★½

Warm spring days and walks in European capitals bring me back to the Before trilogy. Whilst Before Sunrise charmed with its naivete, the “here and now” and sense of adventure, Before Sunset explores maturity, regrets and heartache as consequences of time and distance. Yet even nine years later, the chemistry between Jesse and Céline lights up their eyes and radiates through the screen. Meanwhile, Linklater proves how conversations between two people are enough to build an emotionally charged and unforgettable masterpiece.
Simplicity at its best.
