Before Sunrise

Jesse: I have an admittedly insane idea. If I don't ask you this... It's gonna haunt me the rest of my life.

Celine: What?

Jesse: I wanna keep talking to you. I don't know what your situation is, but... but I feel like we have some kind of.... uuuh... connection, right?

Celine: Yeah, me too...

Jesse: Well, great! So here's the deal, you should get off the train with me in Vienna and come check out the town.

Celine: What?! *smiling*

Jesse: Come on! It'll be fun!

Celine: What would we do?

Jesse: I don't know... um.. all I know is that I have an Austrian airlines flight to catch tomorrow morning at 9.30, and I don't really have the money for a hotel, so I was just gonna walk around and it would be a lot more fun if you came with me... and if I turn out to be some kind of psycho, you know, you just get onto the next train!

Celine: :) *thinking**hesitating*

Jesse: Alright, alright! Think about it like this... Ummmm... jump ahead, 10-20 years, OK? And you're married... only, your marriage doesn't have that same energy that it used to have, you know... you start to blame your husband...

Celine: *now looking with interest*

Jesse: You start to think about all those guys you have met in your life and what might have happened if you picked up one of them... right? Now, I'm one of those guys! It's me!

"...I'm one of those guys! It's me!"

Now think of this as time travel... from then to now... to find out what you are missing out... see what this really could be... it's a gigantic favor to both you and your future husband to find out that you are not missing out on anything... I'm just as big a loser as he is, totally unmotivated, totall boring and... you made the right choice and you are really happy...

Celine: *laughs, avoiding eye contact, thinking*..... Let me get my bag!

And so they venture into the streets of Vienna... talking... their chemistry is instantaneous and never feels out of place... This is a movie that is hard not to fall in love with. I still watch it whenever possible... having lost count of the number of times I did so...

Before Sunset is it's sequel. It's a beautiful continuation of this amazing story.... with intelligent conversations that you would never get bored of... A very unique and intelligent movie, a must for hardcore romantics and movie buffs!

Aye aye captain. I am right on it! hee hee
I just saw BSunset it was as good as new! The reality of the movie gives me goosebumps! :)

Pixie said...

Indicaspecies... Hmm... on the train, when you see a German couple having a fight, your 'journey' will start ;-)

Yoga gal! :) I've got to check that movie out!

Pennylane, stop watching and start writing!! :D

Yes, pixie! You should!

Raghu said...

I need to watch those movies, sounds good.

My romantic movie, though, is 'Moonstruck.' Each character in it is good. The recurring music of opera is too romantic, I never miss a chance to see it.

I think I need to write about it in my blog. I am moonstruck.

chandni said...

must watch!!!!

sounds good to me..

just as an afterthought...would you be able to do something like this on an impulse in real life?? :)

just curious :D

claytonia vices said...

Hey Raghu! Will try to watch moonstruck!

Chandni, I would say 'spontaneous' would be a better word. And I feel that I am not spontaneous enough right now. But you never know, I enjoy surprising myself! ;-)

Sapna said... the way i stopped writin in my blog....i write to myself now...

Hey! Thanks for popping by to sunny old England! ( tell a lie, it's wet again!)

Love the two photos of the distant hills showing you the colour changes (sorry that's color to you!)

Have a nice weekend!
