“Before Sunset”; Not Same As Before Sunrise

I have some kind of mixed feelings about this movie. The acting is good, dialogues are super and the conversation is very engaging but the movie overall leaves you with some kind of emptiness. It is difficult to describe but normally watching a good movie is a fulfilling experience and I did not feel it in this movie.

I think in reality this movie is more real as compared to what happened in “Before Sunrise” but something was missing and I do not know what it is.

There were some great moments though. When Jesse is telling her about his dreams about her in the car and she wants to reach out and touch him. When they are walking up the stairs, there is inhibition, anticipation and some kind of anxiousness about what lays ahead.
