Falling in love in Paris

January 5, 2011

Nine years ago, in Before Sunrise, Jesse, an American young man (Ethan Hawke) and Céline, a French young woman (Julie Delpy) met on a train and spent one night together in Vienna. Nine years later, in Before Sunset, they meet again, this time in Paris. Jesse is now an acclaimed writer – his novel, This Time, which is inspired by his meeting with Céline, has become an American bestseller -, while Céline is now an advocate for the environment.

The two protagonists have just two hours before Jesse has to catch a flight to New York…and in that time, they will walk around the city, talk as if there is no tomorrow, and fall in love all over again.

This sequel is one of the greatest films about falling in love and is every bit as satisfying as the original. As before, the city itself is the third major character in the story, serving as a fluid and dreamlike backdrop to the powerful and engrossing talk. Never has Paris looked better on the screen!

    These were two of my favorite movies especially showing the city as a huge part of the movie. Paris has to be one of my favorite cities and I hope to go back there one day to visit.
