Summary: Liking this movie goes against all logic. It mostly defies all the rules of filmmaking. However, as Hawke and Delpy's character stroll through the south of Greece I find myself hanging on to every word of their dialogue. It's thought provoking, tense, emotional. I love everything about this movie.
Excerpt: If you've seen the previous films (Before Sunrise/Sunset), then you know what to expect from 'Before Midnight'. It's been a pleasure to watch the romantic relationship between these two characters evolve over the course of all three films. Here it seems the most change has happened in the lives of our now 'domestic-partnership' couple, as they've become parents.
Excerpt: Provocative, funny, realistic and entertaining. It's method of adding new elements hampered it a little. This felt like a romantic comedy version of Scenes from a Marriage crossed with Crimes and Misdemeanors. We always know we are going to get a well-written plot/screenplay from the Before franchise. This reviewer has seen the first and 2nd installment which eagerly makes this a definite must watch with my significant other.
Excerpt: Even though romance is one of my least favorite genres and I have suffered my good share of terrible rom-coms and Twilight fan-fiction, I am proud to admit I finally found the perfect date movie. This is an excellent romantic drama. It is funny, it is romantic, it is genuine and it is authentic. The acting of Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke is never over the top or overly romantic or in love.
