Before Midnight is the sequel to Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, films that follow the relationship of Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Céline ( Julie Delpy).
Films that have a lot of dialog.
This film is no different which is quite astounding and exhausting all at once. For me, it was one of those films I enjoyed more once it was over because on reflection all of that dialog is very clever. The issues that concern this couple in their relationship are real problems and not some overblown movie drama. And in the end, life isn't perfect - and the moral of the story? You put aside the imperfections because this is the reality of relationships.
And beyond anything else this film is a fantastic advertisement for a holiday in Greece - or given the economic condition of the country at the moment perhaps property purchase? Who is in for buying beautiful villa amidst an olive grove with its own beach? We can go thirds....
