Before Sunrise / Sunset / Midnight

When I first saw a film Before Sunrise, I immediately fell in love with it. It’s a romantic story between two completely strangers who meet on a train and start chatting. They continue the conversation on the streets of Vienna. They’re flirting, awkwardly smiling to each other… It’s so romantic.

At the time I wished that I could experienced something like that. The thought that you meet a complete stranger and the two of you can connect immediately, it’s pretty appealing… But if I’m completely honest, I doubt that I’d dare to go with him. But if I wouldn’t do it, I’m pretty sure that I would’ve regretted that decision for the rest of my life.

Before Sunrise it’s definitely not for someone who is looking for an action in the film, so many people may find it boring. I found it pretty overwhelming, with all these emotions, youthful energy, playfulness, spontaneity, awkwardness…

When I found out they did the sequel – Before Sunset, I couldn’t wait to see it. This time the story takes place in a romantic Paris. But the film, quite frankly, was not as good as the first one. OK, it’s just my honest opinion. It was still a very beautiful film, but something was missing.

He still seems pretty much in love with her and is fascinated by her. The way he looks at her… Oh, wow. But she seems a little bit cynical and not so interested in him anymore. Or is this only her defense mechanism? However, by the end of the film, she invites him to her apartment and when she dances in front of him, you get the feeling that this isn’t the case. They still have feelings for each other.

The end of the film was pretty undefined. You can only imagine what’s going to happen next.

9 years later (interestingly, all the movies are recorded with a 9 year delay) I’m waiting on the third part – Before Midnight. This time they’re in Greece.

I’ve already seen the trailer and I’m really looking forward to see the whole film.

    I love that movie. I love the story, love the end…..not tipical hollywood movie. And I can even relate to the story. Can`t wait to see the Greek part. But from this trailer it doesn`t look very promising. But hey I love surprises.

      I have to agree with you that the third part doesn’t look very promising. But I’ll watch it anyway. Loved the first two.
      You can relate to the story? Lucky girl. You have to tell me the story once.
