Before Sunrise Reviews
Perhaps the most endearing part of the movie is how it loops on itself: showing you where they'll go at the beginning of the movie, and where they've been once the movie is over. Neither of these things have much meaning unless you take the film as a whole, and then it's a charming stroll down the memory lane, allowing you to project the small and repressed parts of your romantic history onto the story.
It doesn't hurt that the movie is beautifully directed, with long shots of dialogue to not only build the relationship between the two characters, but also between the audience and the characters. There's no rush in this movie, it's just life. Captured, preserved, and there whenever you need to indulge.

Seminal 90s movie that inspired and enchanted my younger self. Have to say it still holds up really well. Romance, inspiration and humour all intact. Shame they become so self-obsessed in the sequels....
