About the Movie

Nine years ago, two strangers met by chance, spent a night together in Vienna, and parted before sunrise. Now, they're about to cross paths again - in Paris -- where they will get the chance we all wish we had.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It's a lovely, beguiling little film a rare treat during this overheated season of blockbusters. It's also an unusual example of a follow-up that doesn't seem forced, but expands effortlessly on the original. – Christy Lemire, Associated Press, Aug 8, 2012

Fresh: Before Sunrise and Before Sunset are a rare case of two movies that rightfully demand yet another sequel. – David Denby, New Yorker, Jan 3, 2005

Fresh: Mr. Linklater and his two creative leads have managed a miraculous transformation of the characters from once-callow lovers into grown-ups teetering on the edge of eternity. – Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Apr 26, 2007

Fresh: Hawke and Delpy are credited with writing some of the dialogue, presumably as improvisations. They manage to be both natural and intense, and their characters feel real, even if the situation does not. – Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle, Jul 21, 2005

So close it hurts

I loved both movies. I was in my twenties almost in my 20's for the first and in my 30's for the second. I could easily place myself in their place, with those conversations, and stories. Julie's confession in the car ride to her apartment is heartbreaking and relatable. I really don't think anything I write can describe how wonderfully written and acted this movie is. If you do not like conversation movies run the other way. It is all conversation. But, if you like to sit in on something real, honest and beautiful buy both Before Sunrise and Before Sunset.

I have lived these movies

Before Sunrise and Before Sunset are 2 of my favorite movies. I have expierienced what Ethan Hawkes character feel in this film, just not in Vienna or Paris! I think thats why its such a personal favorite to me... Its a timeless classic really... Its one of those modern romance films that you would never have thought of! If you are a fan of a good romantic movie this is it! Dont think twice about it!

Can't let go of this movie

Plays close to home for me even if others don't have a clue.
