In one scene, the two lovers passionately kiss and roll around clothed. Sex is implied.

Some frank but non-explicit talk of sex and relationships. There are also a few uses of the F-word in its sexual context.

The F-word is used about a half a dozen times, along with some scatological terms in both English and French.

The characters drink in two or three scenes.

We see a man smoking.


Overall, 'Before Sunrise' is rated R, but only for strong language. Like the rest of the films in the 'Before' franchise, almost the entire film consists of Jesse and Celine talking to each other as they walk around sightseeing.

Recommended for 13 and up.
