What if you had a second chance with the one that got away? Nine years ago, two strangers met by chance, spent one night together in Vienna, and parted before sunrise. Now, Jesse and Celine are about to cross paths again–in Paris–where they will get the chance we all wish we had … to find out what might have been. But they must learn if they belong together in only the few hours Before Sunset. Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy star in this sequel to Before Sunrise. Before Sunset is the first release by Warner Bros.’ arthouse specialty division, Warner Independent Pictures. Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Did you know?

  • The man and woman that Celine speaks to in the courtyard of her apartment are played by Julie Delpy’s real parents, Albert Delpy and Marie Pillet.
  • Shooting took a mere 15 days.
  • The film is notable for essentially taking place in real time, i.e. the time elapsed in the story is the run time of the film. In the fast-changing temperate Paris climate, this created challenges for the cinematographer Lee Daniel to match the color and intensity of the skies and ambient light from scene to scene. The scenes were mostly shot in sequence, as they were still developing the screenplay.
