Best of the three
on 27 June 2013
I love the first two films, and couldn't wait to see Before Midnight. When I came out of the cinema, I just wanted to watch it all over again.
Delpy is incredible - It's as if it's the last performance of her career, and she brings all the passion and volatility of Celine back to life, but with a simmering frustration and resentment which eventually surfaces in the final act.
Hawke brilliantly portrays the forty-one year old Jesse, who still dresses like a teenager and looks like an old rocker. The al fresco dinner scene was my favourite, and I couldn't stop smiling throughout - the dialogue was so sharp and funny.
If you liked Sunrise and Sunset, then I highly recommend this film.
