    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    There is something uniquely unforgettable in the way Linklater, Hawke and Delpy (equal collaborators on the script) find nuance, art and eroticism in words, spoken and unspoken. The actors shine. show more

    A movie this diminutive can be easily oversold, but we might see it on some year-end best lists. It eats at you, just like renewed love. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Although it is technically a sequel, Before Sunset stands perfectly well on its own. In fact, the new movie plays better if you haven't seen the original for a while, so its details have grown appropriately fuzzy. show more
