Critic’s Pick: ‘Before Midnight’

thelmadams.com
10 July 2013
  • Excerpt: “ Before Midnight ,” the third and richest collaboration between Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy and director Richard Linklater, finds the French and American couple Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke) still talking, talking, talking – and making love. Having met on a train nearly two decades ago and day-tripped together in Vienna (“Before Sunrise”) then reunited years later in Paris after Jesse published a novel about their night together (“Before Sunset”), the pair...

Before Midnight

Not Coming
15 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise , Before Sunset , and now the wonderfully-titled Before Midnight have been described as a kind of accidental franchise, an indie answer to the blockbuster spin-offs, sequels, and reboots that rule the summer. It’s fun to point out the obvious contrast: while the familiar crop of superheroes race to save the world, Linklater’s perennial paramours, Celine and Jesse, are busy enough just contemplating it.

'Before Midnight' builds on a remarkable legacy

12 June 2013
  • Excerpt: When Before Sunset appeared nine years ago—and also nine years after the previous single-day adventure of lovers Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Céline (Julie Delpy)—it seemed like a miracle. Nobody had exactly been clamoring for a sequel to Before Sunrise , yet director Richard Linklater and his two stars built upon the tentative, first-blush emotions conjured up by the original and created something deeper, thornier and yet still swooningly romantic.

Empire Online

  • Conclusion: A bit tarter than its predecessors, but not skimping on their woozy, chatty charm, this perfectly played, gently incisive film is a welcome new chapter in one of cinema’s most beguiling ongoing romances. See it with someone you’ve loved for some time.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
18 July 2013
  • Excerpt: The talkies were invented for the couple in this story. "Before Midnight" is a conversation first and foremost, and film is merely the medium it's recorded on. Relationships are complex and involve compromise. It's a pleasure to be privy to an intimate but seemingly everyday sort of dialogue about lives spent together and the future to come. All is achieved with a natural style and there is little feeling that what plays out is being acted out. Magical without pumpkins.

tros kompas

  • Excerpt: De Amerikaanse schrijver Jesse (Ethan Hawke) neemt op een Grieks vliegveld afscheid van zijn zoontje Hank. Het jochie vliegt alleen terug naar Jesse’s ex-vrouw, nadat het de zomer heeft doorgebracht bij zijn vader en diens Franse vriendin Celine (Julie Delpy). Jesse en Celine hebben, na hun eerste kennismaking (in ‘Before sunrise’ uit 1995) en hun hernieuwde contact (in ‘Before sunset’ uit 2004), hartstochtelijk voor elkaar gekozen.

  • Excerpt: Ze zijn terug: de Romeo en Julia van de Generatie X, de koningskinderen van weleer, Jesse en Celine, die op enkele toevallige ontmoetingen na, achttien jaar van elkaar gescheiden moesten zijn om nog lang en gelukkig te leven. Of toch niet? In het derde deel van zijn Before -trilogie onderzoekt Richard Linklater de romantische pijn van de relatie die in stand bleef.

Before Midnight

Nöjesguiden
10 September 2013
  • Excerpt: De långa tagningarna, den ordrika dialogen och känslan av att vandra omkring i en europeisk resekatalog är intakt. Men om de första två delarna kännetecknades av romantiskt svärmeri så är detta mer av en filmatiserad medelålderskris. Ju längre in vi kommer i filmen desto mer börjar grälen, precis som i verkligheten, gå på tomgång. Jag hävdar fortfarande att Julie Delpy är en gudabenådad dialogkonstruktör men i det här fallet blir det faktiskt ett pratminus för mycket.
