Richard Linklater revisits lovebirds Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy) as they encounter one another for the first time since they met, nine years earlier in Before Sunrise. Jesse (Hawke) has become a successful author, having written a novel heavily influenced by their  fleeting romance. Visiting Paris to do a reading of his book, he attracts the attention of his muse, Celine (Delpy). With a few hours to spare before he flies back to the States, the former overnight lovers catch up as they wander through Paris.

Before Sunset is all one could wish for in a sequel—it enriches, glosses, and completes the original.
