A great, fulfilling sequel to Before Sunrise. The ending is in the sweet spot, just inbetween "overexplanatory" and "unexplanatory". Richard Linklater faded out at the perfect time. We know that they had sex in there apartment. And we know that their relationship has been revived. It's just not handed to us on a silver platter. 8/10.

This movie really worked for me as a standalone movie. I don't know if my experience watching it could be improved by watching the first one, but now I really want to see the entire trilogy. Highly recomended.

The most exciting stage of a (fictional) relationship for me personally is exactly the one encapsulated in this chapter of the trilogy. Forget the nerves and ingenuity of a new relationship, i want the angst and the high tension of a past love that didn't work out but is on the verge of a reunion. I'm obsessed with the way this pair of actors explores the different levels of chemistry, applied to each different stage of the chatacters' relationship - it's subtle, but you notice it just enough to make it feel whole and real but still more exciting and dramatic than real life, (which is what we always look for in movies, right?) without ever crossing the bridge to cringiness, which is always the big risk in romantic movies. The dialogues, as always, were an incredibly entertaining chess match to follow, but by far my favourite part is Céline's outburst of emotion in the car, just so so good. That ending has to be one of my favourite endings to a movie ever. I'm obsessed. First one was a solid 9, this one's a good 9,5. Let's see what the third instalment has got!

Pretty great towards the end. Captivating conversation and [spoiler]outbursts in the car[/spoiler]. And that ending when [spoiler]Celine sings that song[/spoiler], it's been a long time since I've teared up watching a romantic movie.
