As a just Preface it should be noted that the acquaintance with the incredible story of Jesse and Celine should start in the correct chronological order of the paintings of Richard Linklater. Thus, the "Before midnight" to remain in the much misunderstood story of a couple over 40 if you still decide to start with this part. With other hand, as it seemed to me, we have a very correct and verified the point of view of expectations, the end of the trilogy. Although, bullet point re not set it is very interesting to see the continuation after nine years, and more then nine — how much is enough desire in the Director implementers of the two title roles.

Time for everyone is on equal footing, and we see Jesse and Celine held a man and a woman a little over forty. Already in the usual manner, they do not hesitate to emphasize the frailty of life, so we can say — themselves taunt age, changes in their bodies, prejudices. How is not difficult to guess, the romantic component of the carefree student of love has gone when emphasis on the routine of married life. "Before midnight," as in previous parts, not hesitate stereotypes, says unpopular topics the mouth of his characters. Parenting, the relentless March of age, career ambitions and the family, the cooling of feelings, suspicion, care, routine in personal life. Movie characters do not share deepest secrets — is a simple, often truths, to Express that in real life you usually need an enviable determination.

The events of the film in fully unfold in Greece, and more specifically, on the South of the Peloponnesian Peninsula. Although the characters themselves make fun of modern communication technologies, in particularly on Scype, Facebook, on an hour and a half if I recent past. Breakfast of Greek salad and olives on fresh air, with views of the picturesque lagoon. Communication for table with new friends, creative people, discussion of literary works. Walking through the city and, of course, dinner on the sunset coast. Emotions from view individual scenes can be compared with the vacation to the sea.

Ethan hawke and Julie Delpy with each stage is a more harmonious look in played roles. In the second half of the film, when the intensity of what is happening is escalating, they seem to successfully improvise more than relentlessly follow the letter of the script (written by them, in particular). Why are only the scenes without gluing length in 3-4 minutes. In many ways this creates a sense of integrity of what is happening, although the third movie was, perhaps, not so inspiring. At this time, after viewing the remains the more reason for rethinking some moments of life, but and only positive emotions also less.

Suddenly I missed this movie. And  - I was impressed that I even decided to write a review.

Love the last two parts of this franchise, and when I learned about the existence and the third, I honestly cringed. Because thought the authors have fished out of this story is all that can I removed just the story to put the squeeze on of the latest to play nostalgia to fans of the previous parts(as in the film is often).

But, it is exactly when I glad wrong.

The years go by, characters grow. The haze of first love and the joy of reunification falls, and our characters are transformed in ordinary people, immersed in the everyday life.

The film is about what happens after the credits melodramas and romantic movies, when the joyful lovers kissing on the sea pier, and letters the names of the authors fly off into the sunset.

Julie Delpy and Ethan hawke once again on top. Played just amazing. I them in the principle of love. But after this part I just love. A simple film with a minimum action and a maximum of dialogue. At first I even a little tired, but by mid-movie I was delighted. I just looked at the dialogue and the quarrel of the heroes and saw himself. Common problems that are fanning out of molehills, complete refusal to listen to the interlocutor, all the slamming of the door and care "navsegda and return in a minute. Hell Yes it's me! Yes any easy emotional woman and any simple, tired and smart man. The actors portrayed this very simple, but in and genius. And it all attractive.

In General, everything is fine. A film about how do not necessary.

Or how to do right.

In General, just look and draw conclusions. Listen. Take in the sights of Greece. I have this part, learned a lot and I really realized how it funny, silly and goofy looks from side. Thanks to the authors and actors for a beautiful picture, roleplaying, conversations and life lesson.

Strictly after nine years on the screens out another one episode of the love story of Jesse and Celine.

As always, incredibly sensual, absorb on one breath, familiarity with another scene of the trilogy by Richard Linklater. On it — all those two, a man and a woman, endless conversations and background scenery of a new city.

We meet a couple in Greece, where they went to leave the invitation of friends in common. For lunch cheerful old funny Patrick campaign enthusiastically talks on the themes of romantic Dating, fidelity and eternal love. Walking through the ancient expanses awaken in memory happy moments first met Jesse and Celine, their dolgozhdannogo reunion in Paris. They so fun energetically ready for hours to throw spontaneous remarks on candid topics, to argue and make jokes, and opinion that operator as smoothly floats from heroes, afraid to disturb them in perfect harmony.

But it is worth it to be alone in hotel floats on the surface completely different picture. They already not young, got children and many of the hardships and problems of everyday rational life. Everyday worries, difficulties in work, the challenges of raising children are not leave time, when "your life is fully yours." And frustrated sex, recriminations and"fat ass" doing this time is simply unbearable, exposing all of the relevant point seemingly happy family life.

"The meaning to watch, to look, to stay hungry, keep some degree of passion" — one of the most important phrases in the entire trilogy, is able to evoke in the characters that, for them and loved the audience.

Acquainted with Jesse and Celine 18 years ago, we perceive the events more than just one of a series of melodramatic plots. This history is not just real, it — part of life of each of us.

There are still hope they are willing to "tolerate each other more 56 years"? Have a look and waiting for 2022...
