Before Sunrise, Before Sunset

All I can say about this movie is that in spite of the fact that it is a low budget movie, its just perfect. Also it is among the rare movies where the sequel is much better than the prequel. Each and every dialog was well thought off and the body language and facial expressions are natural.

Here is the brief plot:
Before Sunrise
A guy meets this interesting girl in a train and asks her to spend the evening with him in Vienna. The director beautifully captures how the 2 strangers were initially awkward around each other, but soon those barriers broke. They had the most amazing evening of their life.

Before Sunset
You need to watch Before Sunrise to understand the story. Here is how it goes. The 2 characters moved on with their life and never met again for the next 9 years. The guy even wrote a book about that night in order to preserve the memories. Then the most amazing thing happens, they bump into each other. The guy has just 30 minutes before he has to leave to catch the flight and the whole movie revolves around those 30 minutes.

The best part of the movie is that how accurately it captures the difference between our projected self from our real self. If you meet a very dear friend after a long time, initially we project how great life is and how successful we have been. Its only after some time that we reveal the true problems we are facing.

As always, If you want a copy of the movie and happen to live in Lucknow, then feel free to contact me.
