While Before Sunset is absolutely consistent as a sequel to Before Sunrise, it's also likely to prove more relatable for those viewers who didn't connect with Jesse and Celine last time.

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.

The reunion has some lively moments, but a great deal of slow walking and fatuous talking about love, married life and sex.

Shooting in long takes, Linklater and his actors (who get co-screenwriting credit) allow the conversation to curlicue effortlessly from literate banter to matters of the heart, and sometimes to places in between.

Charming, talky romance for older teens and adults.

As a romance streaked with regrets, obligations and fears, "Sunset" builds to a wistful, perfect conclusion - a fadeout infused with the idea that a memory's never finished as long as you're alive and one of the loveliest last-line exchanges of all time.

the film takes a miraculous healing turn at the end, and the characters rise above their ruefulness, and use it as a springboard into hope

Well acted, very well written, well told, and bears yet another ending that will keep audiences wondering.

Linklater, Hawke and Delpy have collaborated on the script, resulting in an enthralling snapshot of life from the point of view of two like souls who spark by just being in each other's presence.

Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy have reconvened to bring us this belated, yet very welcome sequel.

Before Sunset retains most of what was engaging about the first movie: it has its gentleness, its romanticism and, most importantly, its idealism. What it has lost is the sense of mystery.

I was charmed, engaged and moved by the delightful Before Sunset, and without having re-seen the earlier picture, it has been upgraded in my mind in the light of the new one.

A gemlike minimalist triumph -- deeper and more provocative than its predecessor.

However, between Delpy, Hawke, and Linklater, a script was born and once again the couple meets, this time in Paris, this time for far fewer hours (and in real time).

At the risk of overhyping 80 minutes of intimate real-time, this is the soul of generosity, a beautifully vibrant and big-spirited film.

The characters eventually manage to get beyond their existential ennui and incessant talking to something approaching romance.

The final 25 minutes of Before Sunset, starting with excruciatingly honest admissions from both parties in a car backseat, are the best filmmaking I've ever seen.
