Before Sunrise - Review

It's the classic travel fantasy: fly to Europe, hop on a train, fall in love with a beautiful girl as you spend the day exploring a beautiful city. After a chance encounter, American tourist Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and French student Céline (Julie Delpy) spend an enchanted day in Vienna together; however, Jesse's fast-approaching flight back to the States adds a special urgency to their romance. As the pair visits cafés and strolls along the Danube Canal, they also learn about each other and their quickly growing connection. But will it be strong enough to withstand their star-crossed fate?
