It has been nine years since we last met Jesse and Celine, the French-American couple who once met on a train in Vienna. They now live in Paris with twin daughters, but have spent a summer in Greece on the invitation of an author colleague of Jesse's. When the vacation is over and Jesse must send his teenage son off to the States, he begins to question his life decisions, and his relationship with Celine is at risk. Written by

Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy had an idea to just show Jesse and Celine on a typical day: Someone goes and picks up the kids and it's only later at night that they have this together moment which actually was one of the original ideas behind the title. See more »

[His dad texted him that his grandmother died]
Anyway, so I called my dad, right, after I got the text, just, you know to tell him I was sorry but I think I got screwed up at some point said... Hey dad you're an orphan now. I don't think it was funny. Not funny at all.

I went with my wife to theatre to just sit back and enjoy a romantic story, but this movie made no sense at all. This is not how couples interact, far from it. In my humble opinion, if you interact with each other in such an idiotic way, with dialogues that don't make sense, you would end up separated or in an asylum. The way the story developed was ridiculous and you could see the main actors had to do a hard thing to make the relationship look real; it was all to obvious. As for the table scene: I have never witnessed such an awkward dialogues among the actors involved, I felt even embarrassed watching it. The movie itself was an absolute torture to sit through. My advice is, when they even try to consider another sequel, look at your own life before writing such an stupid script.
