    This movie is one of two favourites; the other is called " When Harry Met Sally" Any other comments are welcomed.

    Well, I love "When Harry met Sally", but "Before sunrise" is IMO just a bunch of talking, talking, talking and more talking from two not very interesting characters.

    Talking, talking and more talking is what we do everyday; but don't you think their conversations are interesting and honest. (just a thougth). TonyLy

    No, I just found it to be grating and self-indulgent. Sorry. [​IMG]

    "Talking, talking and more talking" is Richard Linletter's trademark.

    I thought it was a great film.

    Interesting characters with extemely interesting dialog.

    It's refreshing to see 2 people connect in a film.

    I just saw this for the first time on a late night movie channel. Great flick. I bought into it hook, line, and sinker. I thought the writing to be quite unique and thoughtful. This movie got under my radar apparently. I had no clue about it. I will have to pick this one up on DVD.

    I just noticed that someone on HTF mentioned a reference to the two main characters in this movie to be in Linklater's Waking Life. If so, how are they used in his Waking Life? I havent seen that one yet. Not sure if I will anytime soon, but I am interested in the rehashing of the Before Sunrise characters.

    Brian,

    In Waking Life the two characters are in bed and carrying on a conversation similar to the ones they have in Before Sunrise.

    I think Before Sunrise is a supremely underrated film. I understand why some think Linklater's films are talky, pretentious snorefests, but I find Before Sunrise to be so captivating that I don't see how anyone could find it boring.
