Two disclaimers. One, this isn't an action flick. Two, I don't usually like Ethan Hawke.
But I loved this movie. The acting and the dialogue are superb and the premise, meeting your soul mate on a train and only having twelve hours together... wow. So implausible. So unreal. So... romantic!
I saw this movie late in the game, so I was delighted when I discovered that a sequel, Before Sunset, had already been made. My fingers couldn't order it quick enough from netflix.
The movie picks up nine years later when the couple meet again in Paris after Ethan Hawke,(Jesse) writes a best selling novel about their first meeting. In the first movie, the couple walks and talks in Vienna. In the second one, they walk and talk in Paris.
Happy sigh. So if you are in the mood for romance, check out these movies... but make sure you have the second one waiting to go into the DVD player right after you watch the first one. You are gonna want to see how it turns out!
