Before Midnight (Richard Linklater – 2013) A

Where is Jesse and Celine now, about 9 years since we last left them in Paris? On a vacation in Greece, they have twin girls together and as far as I could tell they are still in love. It’s not a perfect relationship and is much different than it was in the previous two movies. They shared a life together now and they have their problems, fights and arguments.
I really love this series of films and the glimpses it shows us of the life these couple are leading every few years. These are not movies that everyone would like. If you do not like the main two characters you will probably find this intolerable. This third installment really is the least “romantic” I would say and it focuses on how difficult maintaining a solid longtime relationship can be. I hope we can see more of them 9 or 10 years from now.
