'Before Sunrise' generates an organic feeling of a budding relationship through believable dialogue and performances. It's smart and understated. A generally enjoyable night of discovery between characters.

This dialogue driven romance is close to perfection; Before Sunrise is simply the story of a tourist and a French traveler who meet on a train, talk, and fall in love. Though it is simple and nothing more than a 100 minute conversation between two strangers, it's so much more. The script is absolutely perfect, with dialogue so smart, powerful, profound, and incredibly real. Add to that the brilliant chemistry between Hawke and Julie Delpy and you have an excellent film that completely takes you in. You fall in love with the characters and believe everything they say.

The beauty of realism.

Richard Linklater is a very adaptive filmmaker. He knows what the to give a script and the direction, even a particular scene. The few films of his that I've seen always give me pleasure and leave me fascinated by the end. Before Sunrise is no exception.

I don't think watching two people talking for an entire movie has ever been this interesting.
The overall screenplay and dialogue are fantastic in so many ways, especially in the creation of the slowly building love between two ordinary people who met by chance. It may sound familiar, but it is constructed in such a way that you can't help but appreciate it.

Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy are equally fantastic, and these two roles truly let their talent shine.
Watching this entirely fictional relationship is one of the most entertain...

Before Sunrise review

The picture is about two strangers who met on a train from Budapest. The American Jesse (Ethan Hawke) starts a conversation with the attractive French Celine (Julie Delpy) and decides to wander the streets of Vienna. The lovely pair passes by Wiener Riesenrad Ferris wheel, Donaukanal (danube canal), Cemetery of the Nameless, a café, a bar and other picturesque locations. Its cinematography is one of the best I’ve witnessed and the dialogue so intellectually stimulating and thought provoking at the same time.

The realism of the film is unblemished, almost each scene you were a part of their discussions based on the acting and camera angles. It’s fresh to see romantic films such as this compared to sex, vulgar or slapstick romantic comedies around. Some quotes that I really liked:...
