“Nine years after their meeting on a Vienna-bound train, Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy) meet again in Paris when Celine turns up at Jesse’s book-signing at the famed Shakespeare and Company bookstore on the Left Bank. With Jesse’s departure deadline looming over them, the two tentatively recreate their decade-earlier Viennese adventure as they stroll the Parisian boulevards, but the tone has definitively changed: the romantic idealism of innocence is now tempered with the regrets and sometimes bitter realizations of experience. Hawke, Delpy, and director Richard Linklater spent several years collaborating on the Oscar-nominated screenplay for this sequel to Before Sunrise, which is even richer than its predecessor in depicting the vicissitudes of real-world romance. Clear-eyed but not embittered, rueful but not despairing, witty, moving, and even suspenseful, Before Sunset is one of the best American films of the 2000s.” -TIFF
