    I took a chance with a movie like this and couldn’t wait for it to end. I think it might be more of a girl’s movie perhaps? I don’t know. I’m very surprised it got such high ratings!

    Not my cup of tea, but if you liked it, good for you.

    Personally, i’m glad it’s over.

    Grade: D+

    On the train Jesse got Celine to get off with him by saying, "This could be a big deal, and if you don’t do it you might regret it someday." So why did they both think it was okay to just be together for one night? When they are talking on the boat and say "goodbye" to each other early…I didn’t really like it. They obviously had feelings for each other, so why did they think it was okay to just be together for one night?

    I’ll take you to the candy shop.

    I thought that they were indeed tedious, but throughout the movie I kept thinking of how realistic these long discussions made the characters, and their connection that much more convincing and beautiful. I have a short attention span with films these days, I feel like I’ve seen it all, but this one was great because of the way the characters were written.

    They weren’t there to entertain me with witty one-liners, they were real, complex people. It made watching the film like watching a real connection between two real people taking place, and this made it one of the best movies I’ve watched in recent memory because of that.

    I recently watched La double vie de Véronique and I loved it because of how it allowed the characters to express themselves naturally with long shots of nothing in particular, and this movie felt like it had the same thing going, but with actual depth to the characters.

    why did the director give him a leather jacket wen all it did was squeak and get on my nerves?

    he said he went and met his gf in madrid and he wasnt welcome, no i wouldnt welcome him with that leather jacket and secondly who takes a leather jacket to madrid in the summer anyway?! but the point to the "ex" gf thing is that he is a liar! they did not split up, did you see his awkward face expressions at the pinball machine and his smug looks after she got on the train it was like, yeahh boi ive slept with her and ive got a gf, boo ya!

    why was the girls eyes so far apart?

    why was it so awkward in that record shop? surely a better night would have been to get so pissed up and cause a brawl in the local and unpopulated bars that they went in, then he cud have been all cut open, she feels sorry for him and she sleeps with him.

    why were they so crap at pinball? and how many go’s did they wanna have?

    if he’s such a good person why did he leave a bottle of red wine and glasses on that old womans lawn?! so rude and inconsiderate. Promoting people to drop litter.

    "this is a horrible story….and so the man sed UH HUH wrong answer and drove off"

    oh yeah terrible outrageous story that is. what about if the man got out and poured petrol all over the hobo and set him on fire and laughed hysterically while the man screamed in pain being burnt alive. thats more terrible.

    hosepipes & seeing grandparents? what kind of deluded man was he?

    the bottle of red wine…..no bar in any world would give out red wine, at least a bottle of it anyway and he said give me the address and he jus didnt, she couldnt thieve to save her life, how obvious did she wanna make it, that barman was the stupidest man alive!

    Unfortunately (and I really do wish I’d loved it)… i found this movie lame.

    I’d always wanted to see it and always heard it was good, so I was pretty excited to buy it cheap the other weekend. But when I watched it I was sooo disappointed. Perhaps because I watched it ten years too late? I don’t know…. I guess in a way it kind of encapsulates being young in the 1990’s similar to films such as Reality Bites… it is now dated? Is that why I got bored? Would I have loved it if I watched it back then?

    It just seemed that the conversations were so contrived and philosophowanky.By the time they were consulting the palm reader I just wanted to smack my head against a wall and tell them to get over themselves… Did their conversations drive anyone else nuts???

    In contrast I saw 2 Days In Paris the other day and love love loved it. I thought the dialogue was witty, sharp and interesting. Def held my attention. It didn’t seem half as cliched and much edgier. Again, perhaps this is a sign of the times as opposed to the 90’s?

    I watched it, as well as Before Sunset last night. LOVED THEM BOTH! I think I like Before Sunrise a bit better though.

    She’s not very attractive in this. I mean here we are on the train and She’s wearing this jumper style dress and her hair is in no particular order and she’s not really made up. I mean she’s okay to look at. Her face has no flaws, but nothing about her is striking.

    Until they get to the Ferris Wheel….

    THen the camera zooms in from 3/4 perspective, and then you see her lips, and her heavy lidded eyes (who does she look like?), and you look at her forehead and her nose and every feature is so put well put together. She is amazing. I am falling for her, when a moment ago she didnt look like anything.

    It is another part of the magic of this movie, you dont realize just how beautiful JD is until that moment they kiss. At least I didnt. They show her mostly from the front in the train scenes and medium/close. It’s only when you get to the real close up that the camera shows you what she must be like in real life. YOu just take in each feature, the folds around her mouth, the gaps in her teeth, that high arching forehead.

    You know she looks a little like Catherine Deneuve. At least in the eyes…

    And she is one of those girls that look sort of fair but nothing special. Diane Rigg was like that, they dont hit you at first, but they really grow on you.

    I saw the dvd again and in the train scenes, they do show maybe one shot of her from the side and you can kinda of see the attraction. But it is very fleeting, and they do something to her makeup too. It is like in the day scenes she has makeup that is meant to work under night light i.e. yellow like moonlight or candlelight.

    I begin to think with the forehead and the eyes she is not quite unlike Sandy Dennis. WHo was certainly interesting but not a real beauty.

    ANyhow then it gets night time and when they are walking with the street lights in the back ground and camera is straight on her. This is after the Ferris wheel but not immediately, it has finally dark. Now her face really comes aglow in front view. Suddenly you can see how sculpted her jaw is, and she does have high cheek bones although you couldnt tell that in the day time. She has a wide full mouth with those little folds around it.

    Is it Christina Applegate? What is it with that Forehead?

    SHe just gives you so many looks from so many angles. I cant quite get over it. Then she’s laying down in the park, I guess. The camera is straight on and she is reclining…

    Andie Macdowell! I kid you not. Take a look at that hairline, it is rather high and the nose and the high cheek bones. YOu will swear it is Andie MacDowell.

    But now I’m not quite so sure. ANd they go back to the profile view, or at least 3/4 of profile and I’ll be darned if she doesnt look like Jessica Alba. No kidding. This is still in the park, and she is on the left side of the screen this must before they do it. THe eyes and that wide smile are Jessica Alba.

    Then we get back to heavy lids in morning and I think it’s Mia Sara.

    Help me out!

    …hi all.

    Having just watched both films back to back for the millionth time (and loved them all over again), I noticed something.

    In the scene where Jesse and Celine pretend to call their friends back home to tell them about meeting each other, Jesse calls his friend "Frank". Could this be adding to the whole "Jesse James" thing, cause Jesse (the outlaw Jesse)´s brother was called Frank?

    Can someone tell me the titles of the books the lead characters are reading in their first encounter inside the train?

    And another thing. I also watched the Before Sunset and I enjoyed it better especially the concluding minutes. Delpy’s song haunts me and I want to know where to get the complete lyrics of that song. Thank you in advance.

    I’m a guy, and I’ll be honest with you – this movie has struck me emotionally. And the scene towards the end, I just could not contain myself, and my eyes filled up with tears when they were saying their goodbyes. You could feel it in their voices and how deep both of them were breathing. I understand this moment so well because I have experienced such a feeling before…where you feel like "This is it, this is it, I will never see this person again" It is just so true, how human the scene was. You could see how deep their love for each other was. I can’t add more to it, it’s just one of those moments that need to be seen with your own two eyes. It is so real, and the emotions that are conveyed are unbearable. You just want to let it all out.

    Love truly is a beautiful thing. It truly is.

    What a typical "get it at any cost" moron! Celine was a beautiful, smart woman but I got the feeling he really just enjoyed her wanting him more than he wanted her. I loved Celine’s character, but his gave off a sleezy sense.

    If you were to get a tattoo to represent Before Sunrise/Before Sunset, what would you get? What would you use to symbolize the films and their impact? Would you get lettering? A quote? Some image from the films?

    Share your ideas!

    I havent read the board. So I don’t know if this has been asked…this movie is insane! Do you ever wonder what it would be like to talk about things like they did? It’s so deep. I thought the dialogue was very…I don’t know, not how actual people would talk.

    I have not searched the board topics thoroughly for this, but I just watched this movie last night (ignoring the sequel for now, which I have not seen) and it seems strongly to me that toward the end Celine worked it into the exchanges between Jesse and her that she did not want to continue to communicate with him (she gave a reason and he concurred). She had sized him up and came to the conclusion that he was not a "keeper." He, on the other hand, had sized up the situation, agreeing within himself that he had no money to successfully pursue a transatlantic romance with her, and had acceded to the realities of the moment. His making arrangements to meet her again there (in Austria?) in six months was some sort of face-saving exercise, which idea, if we refer to the sequel now, would seem to be supported.

    If their attraction and connection were so strong, they would have formed tentacles across the ocean gripping each other with a bond never to be broken.

    Hence, I think a lot of commentators’ remarks about the realistic story, which it was, I think.

    It’s when they talked about how there’s one specific person for every one on earth, etc. I think it was in this movie or the sequel but I’m not sure.

    Exact quote please.

    I’ve seen people on this board call either the characters or the dialogue in Before Sunrise pseudointellectual.

    Granted there are a lot of movies that try too hard to be sophistictated, but there are also a lot of movies including this one that have characters talking about philosohpical ideas, without using big words or things like that, and people call it pseudo. I love having conversations like the ones in this movie, and I’ve never been trying to look smart. It seems that people call anything written or said by someone without a PhD pseudointellectual.

    Anyone thoughts?

    Daydream delusion, limousine eyelash

    Oh baby with your pretty face

    Drop a tear in my wineglass

    Look at those big eyes

    See what you mean to me

    Sweet-cakes and milkshakes

    I’m a delusion angel

    I’m a fantasy parade

    I want you to know what I think

    Don’t want you to guess anymore

    You have no idea where I came from

    We have no idea where we’re going

    Lodged in life

    Like branches in a river

    Flowing downstream

    Caught in the current

    I carry you

    You’ll carry me

    That’s how it could be

    Don’t you know me?

    Don’t you know me by now?

    So here’s the poem. i put this because i wanted to and because here’s not a single post about it.. besides it happens to be one of my favourite moments in the film.

    I know this is totally out of the movies context but after the bit about her ex and the psychiatrist session I thought she would become clingy to James and murder him out of fear of the pain their parting would cause.

    Just a random thought. Decent movie, for a romance anyways.

    Wow…thats the exclamation when someone even talks about it.Richard Linklator has done an extraordinary job with both the movies.I would say that Sunrise was better because it had that excitement,exuberance of the adulthood.The first time falling in love and instant connections.What really stuck me about it was that it was the first time I saw a movie taking place in real life/in a matter of hours.Julie Delpy looked stunning and Ethan Hawke was brilliant and dont even get me started on the chemistry they shared.I am writing this thread around 2 years after Ive seen the movie but it still seems so fresh.I just want to know your feelings and reviews attached to the movie in the long run.I mean,we all review movies right after we’ve seen them…right!
