“Before Sunset” consists only of conversations between two people and to some, it may not sound like the most exciting film but there is no dull moment in sight. This film is entertaining, capturing, and romantic. Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke not only star in the film but they also co-wrote the script with the director, Richard Linklater.
Jesse (Hawke) is touring around Europe to promote his book. At a book signing in Paris, Jesse meets Celine (Delpy) once again. It’s been nine years since they have seen each other and even though they only met that one time so long ago, there is an obvious spark and comfort between the two.
Celine shows Jesse her Paris. Not only is she a guide for Jesse but for the audience as well. Using the beautiful city of Paris as its backdrop is one of the absolute highlights of the film. Paris becomes its own character, the character that brings Celine and Jesse closer together. The city’s beauty reflects their emotion and the surroundings their state of mind.
Getting to know someone is a process. There’s the physical and the intellectual attraction, the things in common as well as the distinct differences. In this film you could say that the audience is a fly on the wall. They get to observe Celine and Jesse at their utmost vulnerable states. The conversations are real and relatable to the audience. This film will make you want to fall in love, get to know someone, or re-live joyful memories.
For those who enjoy getting lost in love, then this is the film for you. Its simplicity creates such depth and originality. Julie Delpy is such a great actor, one of my favourites indeed. She has such presence in every role that she plays, she just keeps you engaged from beginning to end. I would highly recommend any film that she is in – starting with this one.
