I saw the first two films, Before Sunrise is my favorite though Before Sunset is also good. I saw this at a film festival in Penticton and it was a unique experience given I was the youngest attendee and perhaps the only one emotionally invested in this film series.

It's a leap forward to when Jesse and Celine have each other and two children with one(?) more from a previous marriage of Jesse's.

The film is gorgeous, filmed in Greece, and the scenes and the dialogue are such that it continues the series in fine form. It is racy, given that there is nudity and sexuality in scenes of the film but this is a more grounded relationship than most Hollywood films portray.

I know I am not the only fan of the series nor of this film but clearly few are among the people who've commented on this film here at this site.

I've watched this film more than once, having it on dvd, and my most recent time was with someone whom I care about and so that added to the experience of the film, even if they didn't appreciate it the way I do.

I saw this movie on DVD as I was absolutely bored with "Before Sunset." I was bored with this movie too. I tried!

I found this movie had so much meaningless banter it got on my nerves. Not my type of movie.

Fast forward to satisfy your curiosity or perhaps look at Delpy and Hawke a few years older and return it quickly so that the waiting list can be reduced by 1.

My idea of hell is to be trapped in a room with Jesse and Celine, and unable to escape from their inane whining and bourgeois angst.

Finally a conclusion. I loved it!

"Before Sunrise" is probably the best of the three. This one is getting a bit tedious.

The first half of the movie is really boring and has very little depth. The second half gets a lot more real. Of the three movies, this is my least favourite but still worth a watch if you enjoyed the previous two.

The main characters and the director were also the writers; their commentary is excellent, going into the details of how the dialogue and scenes came to be. This Romantic Comedy goes beyond the usual scope in that it tackles the inevitable bedroom scene that starts so romantically, progresses to a fight and talking again in the end. Very REAL. Very well done.

Wonderfully co-written by both lead actors and director Richard Linklater, they have created the best of the three movies in this series. Jesse and Celine show their flaws and vulnerabilities, and their verbal joustings are as good as ever. Julie Delphy and Ethan Hawke have great on screen chemistry, and as their characters relationship gets more complex and complicated, things just get more interesting.
