By they, I meant Celine and Jesse. I know they are fictional characters from three separate movies, but I still want what they have. That connection. That recognition of the impact of their first encounter had on their lives even after nine years apart, which was when they next meet.
I don’t want to wait nine years, though, because I know how precious life is.

I like Before Sunset best. The first movie was too hopeful and young (if that makes sense), the third too real. But the reunion in Paris had a dreamlike quality while maintaining some ‘realness’ to it. When the three combined, the flow was believable, it showed how the couple evolved throughout the years first without each other and then together. The looks, the flirting, the fights, I want all of it.
