Day 134

Movie: Before Sunset
Starring: Ethan Hawk, Julie Delpy
Genre: Drama, Romance
Year: 2004
Format: Shaw Video On Demand

Plot: 9 years after they first met, Jesse  bumps into Celine again in Paris and spend the afternoon together remembering the night years before that Jesse wrote a book about.

This is a film filled with what ifs and stinks of desperate desires, mostly on the part of the Ethan Hawk character.  He comes across like a puppy begging to be loved.
I don't know if it's because Hawk lost so much weight in the years between the two films or something else, but he does not come across as likeable in this one just creepy.

What do I think I learned from this film?
We all have that one great love that inspired us and might have even torn us down, breaking our hearts. This film is a classic version of the one that got away.
