Trivia

The house where they are staying is the famous residence of the late British travel writer Sir Patrick Leigh Fermor, in Kalamitsi, near Kardamili, southern Peloponnese. He left it to the Benaki Foundation on his death in 2011, and the Foundation loaned it to the production. The character of "Patrick" is clearly a nod to the great writer and Hellenophile See more »

Everything's better with maturity
27 February 2013 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I just saw Richard Linklater's Before Midnight his newest and third film about Jesse and Celine the couple who meet as young adults in Before Sunrise and re-meet as adults in Before Sunset (one of my five favorite films).

This is simply brilliant film making: funny, raw, emotionally honest and complicated. The couple (Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy who both co-wrote with Linklater) are now in their 40s and face some very real challenges to their menage. I started laughing and crying within about 3 minutes and both emotions kept up until the very end. Everyone sat through the credits so they could wipe their faces clean. Brilliant acting . . .

This film gives one hope for the state of American film making and reminds you that Linklater is one of our most underrated auteurs. I sincerely hope he continues and I live long enough to see the couple well into their senior years.

Even if you have never seen the first two movies, do not miss this one.
