Jimmy's Buzz Guide Review: The quiet success of director Richard Linklater's 1995 film has lifted this exquisite forerunner back onto the charts. It's more than worth a look.

The characters are so real, that you feel like you could see them on any street in the world. The film captures the awkward feelings between these two people. When they first get to Vienna, they seem to have nothing to talk about, you can feel their awkwardess. Ethan Hawke gives a breathtaking performance as a young man completely in love. When he convinces Julie Delpy to get off the train at Vienna, and see the hope in his eyes, you hope that she'll get off with him. Everything about the movie is easy to relate to, and I'm sure that it will strike a amiliar chord inside everyone as the two of them realize that this magical moment will only last one night. They promise each other to meet again, but it takes nine years for them to reunite - in 2004's "Before Sunset."
