Before Sunset (4)

Two people meet at 16 and promise to meet up 6 months later. One shows but the other doesn't. 9 years later they meet again in France and talk of the night that changed them both forever. Is it too late?

When the movie first ended I had a huge smile on my face. The ending was really awesome. Couldn't have ended in a better way. I couldn't believe that a whole movie about two people catching up would be so interesting but it was. Basically the only thing in the movie is Ethan Hawke and Julie Deply's characters walking, sitting and talking to one another. All of their conversations/topics were so interesting. I was completely sucked in and didn't even realize that it shouldn't have been as beautiful to watch as it was.

I have never seen a movie quite like this. With this sort of beautiful intensity. The satisfaction in the end wasn't lame at all. It was just as perfect and beautiful as them finding each other again. Both in different parts of their lives with different experiences yet wanting the same basic things.

Solid flick. Really great. Ethan and Julie were superb together. Defintely a new favourite romantic comedy. It wasn't so much a comedy as just really sweet. A few chuckles but it was just real.

...I'm smiling like a fool.

4/5
