My sister claims I watched it every weekend for a year in highschool. I don't remember it quite that way, but I do remember it as a transporting intoxicant. Still intoxicates, but serves as a measure for my own growth. The movie and I have both grown. There is to be found here a stinging and plangent sense of the impermanent. An increasingly heartbreaking movie, less the stuff of dreams than of the Maximally Real.
Una de las películas más románticas de las últimas décadas. Muestra con extrema sensibilidad cómo nace el amor, o mejor dicho, cómo el azar hace que dos seres separados entren en contacto y vivan un idilio de unas cuantas horas en una ciudad desconocida. Todo aquí está en estado de gracia. Los diálogos son pura magia, quiero decir, son música, como la de Bach que suena al final...
i am really grateful that i watched before sunrise after before sunset (which is produced ten years after). I believe this is the most adult romantic story. great set and stong characters that make these two movies are so beautiful. Furthermore, this is indeed a sad story for me. and too beautiful.
I wish this could happen to me...a sweet, tender, funny date with the woman you always wanted. outstanding performances by the two young lovers. an unforgettable afternoon in Vienna. it isn't a mere one night stand, but the night when they met the love of their life. I absolutely love this film.
