Our response to the classic trilogy films "Before Sunrise," Before Sunset," and "Before Midnight."

Mike and I spent the last four days watching the trilogy, "Before Sunrise," "Before Sunset," and "Before Midnight," and really enjoyed them. The first of the films(which all star Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy as Jesse and Celine) is probably my favorite, because the conservations that this couple has seems so real, and terribly romantic, yet realistic as well! The first is set in 1994, and the oth...ers were filmed nine years apart each, up to 2013, where the actors are older, wiser, and little more cynical with age! We see the actors age, not always gracefully, but love how their connection is so deep! Mike likes the second one the most, because it filmed in Paris! The scenes in Paris are so lovely, and fluid, and the romance is not on the screen, but inbetween the words of their dialogue. The last two were nominated for Oscars for writing, which made me interested in them. Critics praised them, calling them classics in realism and film! The last one, Before Midnight, we rented at the redbox, and it's the hardest to watch, because the couple are going through emotional difficulties, but it still leaves you hopeful that time transcends all the difficulties of age, and people in love still choose to stay together! Peace, Love, and Best Wishes, Ruben and Mike.
