I’m not a huge fan of romantic movies but i have to admit that i can’t help falling in love with the movies, Before Sunrise (1995) and Before Sunset (2004) by Richard Linklater. The first one is a story about two persons, Celine and Jesse, who meet on the train and decided to spend one day together in Vienna, Austria. In the second movie, the same characters meet again in Paris, France. They are the most convincing couple i have ever seen on screen. After 9 years, the director finally made a sequel, Before Midnight (2013). My hubby and me were super excited to see it but the film was released on 24 May 2013 in Los Angeles and New York only. So, we had to wait before it was finally released in Denver last Friday. We went to see it at the Mayan Theatre (http://www.landmarktheatres.com/market/Denver/MayanTheatre.htm), an independent theater. It is very beautifully decorated in Mayan style. I really like the theater a lot.
After watched it, i feel like this movie is very well made but totally different from the previous two. Some scenes and conversations might be disturbing for some viewers. Anyway, i still think that this movie is great. The series are highly recommended to watch in chronological order. They are great movies and filmed in European cities which i love. However, my favourite movie from the series is ‘Before Sunset’. I guess i can related to them more as my age is not so different from the characters. Here is my fanart of Celine and Jesse while walking in Paris from the 2nd movie.
