2004, Warner Bros., 80 min, USA, Dir: Richard Linklater

Director Richard Linklater’s touching but unsentimental sequel to BEFORE SUNRISE finds parted lovers Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy reuniting briefly as he returns to Paris as a successful writer promoting his latest bestseller. Its naturalistic, real-time progression proves more genuine and reality-based than the typical Hollywood treatments of romance, and consequently much more affecting. Seeing these two films together shows not only the nuances of ongoing, closely linked love and friendship but also the subtle, sometimes painful experience of growing up.

1995, Warner Bros., 105 min, USA, Dir: Richard Linklater

Director Richard Linklater’s charmingly wistful and intelligent ode to fleeting romance sparks on the impulse of American train passenger Jesse (Ethan Hawke) persuading his lovely fellow traveler, student Celine (Julie Delpy), to disembark in Vienna and share his final night on the Continent.
