American tourist Jesse and French student Celine meet by chance on the train from Budapest to Vienna. Sensing that they are developing a connection, Jesse asks Celine to spend the day with him in Vienna, and she agrees. So they pass the time before his scheduled flight the next morning together. How do two perfect strangers connect so intimately over the course of a single day? What is that special thing that bonds two people so strongly? As their bond turns to love, what will happen to them the next morning when Jesse flies away?Written by
When they first meet in the train, Celine says she is heading to Paris, because her classes start next week... At the end they reveal the date, and it's 16th June. Which doesn't make much sense, classes usually start around September/October.... See more »
I'm having kind of an odd situation here, which is that... is... you see that girl over there? Yeah, well, this is our only night together. Here's the problem: The problem is that she wants a bottle of red wine, and I don't have any money. I was thinking that you might want to, um, give me the address of this bar, no, I know... and I would promise to send you the money, and you would make our night complete
You would send me the money?
Okay. For the greatest night in your life.

I rented this after reading reviews for "Before Sunset" and got my hopes up for "Before Sunrise." However, the normally sexy Ethan Hawke was extremely annoying and did not have any chemistry with Julie Delpy. Delpy was interesting, beautiful, and smart. It didn't seem like she had any spark with Hawke's character, a naive, judgemental American tourist. Throughout the movie, Delpy seems to enjoy telling Hawke her various theories about life and such, but doesn't really seem interested in him romantically. He just comes off as a drooling adolescent. In this movie, chemistry would be the only way to pull this movie together, since its basically the two people trading ideas.
Disappointing unless you're a die-hard fan.
