Aro Favourite Before Sunset


USA 2004, 77 minutes
Dir. Richard Linklater
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Independent, Romance


Aroview: Taking up some nine years after their characters met in BEFORE SUNRISE, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, now in their mid-thirties, reacquaint themselves on the boulevards of Paris.

Where its predecessor was a paean to fresh-faced twenty-something idealism, here the romantic spirit remains alive but is tempered by time, responsibility and compromises of the post-youth experience. Owing more to the introspection of European cinema and the dense scripting of theatre, this works a treat as a stand-alone film and adds value to the original, but taken as a pair this is a significant and sublimely satisfying work.
