Before Sunrise (1995)

The first instalment of Richard Linklater’s career-long exploration of romance and relationships in the Before Trilogy sees the beginnings of a doomed relationship between young twentysomethings American Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and French Céline (Julie Delpy). They meet on a train in Europe, and spontaneously disembark at Vienna, where they spend the night walking around the city and getting to know each other. Linklater keeps the plot minimalistic but the dialogue hugely dense. As the night wears on, Jesse and Céline’s limited time together is always on their minds, and leads to their revealing more about themselves than they normally. Inevitably, they fall further and further in love but must conclude that this will be their only night together and they will never see each other again…

A United Kingdom is available to watch on BFI Player from Monday 20th March. Rent here.
