Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Before Midnight 🎬 a trilogy of movies review 💕
There are some on screen couples that just have that unexplainable magical electricity. As if they are in love in real life. As if we aren’t actually watching a movie, but instead are part of their story.
Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke are my favourite on screen couple. I admire both individually as actors but together on screen they create magic.
The Movies –
Here are descriptions of the three movies taken from Wikipedia.
Before Sunrise –
Before Sunrise is a 1995 American romantic drama film directed by Richard Linklater. The film follows Jesse (Ethan Hawke), a young American man, and Céline (Julie Delpy), a young French woman, who meet on a train and disembark in Vienna, where they spend the night walking around the city and getting to know each other.
The plot is considered minimalistic, as not much happens aside from walking and talking. The two characters’ ideas and perspectives on life and love are detailed. Jesse is a romantic disguised as a cynic, and Céline is seemingly a romantic, albeit with some doubts. Taking place over the course of one night, their limited time together is always on their minds, and leads to their revealing more about themselves than they normally would, since both believe they will never see one another again.
Before Sunset –
Before Sunset is a 2004 American romantic drama film, the sequel to Before Sunrise (1995). Like its predecessor, the film was directed by Richard Linklater. He shares screenplay credit with actors Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy.
The film picks up the story in Before Sunrise of the young American man (Hawke) and French woman (Delpy) who spent a passionate night together in Vienna. Their paths intersect nine years later in Paris, and the film appears to take place in real time as they spend an afternoon together.
Before Midnight –
Before Midnight is a 2013 American romantic drama film, the third in a trilogy featuring two characters, following Before Sunrise (1995) and Before Sunset (2004). It was directed by Richard Linklater and stars Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, the film picks up the story nine years after the events of Before Sunset; Jesse (Hawke) and Céline (Delpy) spend a summer vacation together in Greece.
Todays movies are filled with violence, special effects and futuristic adventures. All wonderful to a degree but sometimes all you want to watch is a true story of love. You want to listen to a couple discussing everyday events, so that you can somehow relate to their lives, learn from their story or even appreciate your own situation.
I recommend you watch these movie in order to fully understand the relationship between the main characters Jesse and Celine. To see how their love developed despite the many obstacles they have to face.
Their conversations are so lovely I go back to watch the movies again and again.
Unmissable and totally adorable. I do hope they make some more…
