Before Sunrise

Before Sunrise


Can the greatest romance of your life last only one night?

Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy are two twenty-somethings who meet on a train through Europe in this romance from director Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused). Young American lad Jesse (Hawke) manages to convince beautiful French stranger Celine (Delpy) to hop off the train with him and spend the next few hours wandering Vienna. But what starts as a brash, impulsive move soon turns into a night of fleeting romance, one that threatens to end when they have to part in the morning. Winner of the Silver Bear (Best Director) at Berlin Film Festival 1995.
