Some interesting insights into life, but an extremely uninteresting plot.

The 3rd but probably not the last installment of a romantic love drama series promotes a feminist oppression that doesn't exist as it's excuse to be another anti-marriage film unfortunately.This is screwing up and will continue to screw up a lot of married women worldwide in real life literally,BUT I DIGRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I saw the first two films, Before Sunrise is my favorite though Before Sunset is also good. I saw this at a film festival in Penticton and it was a unique experience given I was the youngest attendee and perhaps the only one emotionally invested in this film series.

It's a leap forward to when Jesse and Celine have each other and two children with one(?) more from a previous marriage of Jesse's.

The film is gorgeous, filmed in Greece, and the scenes and the dialogue are such that it continues the series in fine form. It is racy, given that there is nudity and sexuality in scenes of the film but this is a more grounded relationship than most Hollywood films portray.

I know I am not the only fan of the series nor of this film but clearly few are among the people who've commented on this film here at this site.

I've watched this film more than once, having it on dvd, and my most recent time was with someone whom I care about and so that added to the experience of the film, even if they didn't appreciate it the way I do.

I saw this movie on DVD as I was absolutely bored with "Before Sunset." I was bored with this movie too. I tried!

I found this movie had so much meaningless banter it got on my nerves. Not my type of movie.

Fast forward to satisfy your curiosity or perhaps look at Delpy and Hawke a few years older and return it quickly so that the waiting list can be reduced by 1.

I liked this movie the best. Took a while to get interesting, but found it to be much more truer to life, even though I find their whole story somewhat of a fairy tale. Life is about the good and bad and working your way through it together.

My idea of hell is to be trapped in a room with Jesse and Celine, and unable to escape from their inane whining and bourgeois angst.
