I've loved the first two Before movies, but this one kinda felt short... Don't get me wrong, it was still great, but I didn't saw the "magic" I saw on the first two.

El romanticismo se esfumó en esta película que cierra la trilogía "Before", sólo queda la realidad. No me gustó tanto como las dos primeras, realmente esperaba algo romántico pero no, la historia aterriza a la realidad de las parejas en las que el romanticismo se va pero queda el amor, lo verdadero, lo real. Las historias de ensueño y cuentos de hadas desaparecen para dar paso a lo verídico que no por ello deja de ser bello.

This trilogy has literally changed the way I think about life.

great movie until they reach the hotel. i guess i had always assumed these two had a better grasp on themselves than to devolve into "youre crazy and no one will ever love you except me" as a way of handling stress in a relationship. and the final scene was disappointing to say the least. not what i expected from a Before movie.
loved the farewell dinner scene. 3 generations giving their perspectives on love and relationships. smart and touching.

2022 is the year that we should see Jesse and Celine again. I wonder where they are now...

After being enchanted by the first two movies in the trilogy, I can't help but being disappointed by the decision to pair up the two lovers. It changes the series from two lovers catching up and taking a break from real life, and changes it to the same two experiencing real life, bringing the series from an extraordinary and unique story to one that's been told countless times before. Still an excellent movie, but I'd love to have seen a continuation of the wish fulfillment and fantasy from the first two.

We say goodbye to Jesse and Celine. The first movie was hopeful and romantic, this one felt more real. One thing that surprised me is the evolution of the characters. In the first one I loved Celine, her simplicity and smartness. I didn't like Jesse so much. I thought he wasn't able to understand her well and make her happy in the long run. In this one, Jesse is mature, rational and romantic at the same time. Meanwhile, Celine is a little bit strange, she doesn't listen him like she is used to... maybe it's just the evolution of the couple.

For the first time in this trilogy I missed some moments of silence. Even watching the sunset disappearing, a nice moment to enjoy silence, we have the comment of Celine that watches the sun going away.

It's going to be sad to say goodbye to these characters. It was like opening a book and reading a chapter, skip some ones, going forward. But this was the final chapter.

The two predecessors were great, but this one is outstanding!

For me it's hard to explain how I feel about this, how much I love the Before trilogy.
The three films are one of the most honest and beautiful films ever made.
Everything about them it's just perfect!

I loved the way they made this romantic movie show the hardness of relationships, even those that seem to be perfect a priori. The first shows the flame of passion. The second, the connection that never died, the feeling that was always there to be unleashed. The third, the consolidation of the perfect, what we want so much in life, it shows us that this perfect is different from what we idealize... it is perfect with its problems, with its hardships. In the end, that's what love is about. I loved this trilogy so much. I loved the way they made such a beautiful scene transition: one moment they're in love, talking incessantly and interestingly; in the other they are arguing from internal complexities that were being guarded. Just gratitude to the creators and actors who played so well, it was a spectacle.

I commend this movie on the conversations it prompts, and I honestly feel like it’s a great tool to use to suss out what someone’s view on love and relationships is - just make them watch this and ask what they think! and it truly has some incredible dialogues and acting, just like the first two. but I truly cannot get behind it and its message.

i really think they fucked up with this one. however, i still rate it highly because regardless of that disastrous last scene, the rest of the film is genuinely good and it does make you think, and that is primarily what we should ask of a great movie - that it makes you think.

Had a proper cry right there at the end. A great ending to the trilogy.

A fitting end to the trilogy. I think the thing I liked about the series the most is that their conversations and interested changed so dramatically from film to film.

Nice way to end up one of the best romance trilogies ever but it's far away from the unique feeling you were getting from before sunrise..This is how it goes for me

1) Before sunrise 8.5
2) Before sunset 7.4
3)Before midnight 7.3

This one made me much more sad about life then the previous two. It is much more grounded in real life getting in the way of love and the whole hotel scene made me uncomfortable. Still it has amazing dialogue and Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy have great chemistry (even when fighting).

It's been 9 years from the previous story and the film is set in Greece this time. This is the last one of the sequence. In my opinion, the main theme is more practical than before and based on our actual life or feelings. That's why it makes me feel it's less romantic compared to last two series, but there is still full of conversation among people, especially between two in whole drama and I enjoy the philosophical atmosphere in the ancient place. I like the scene in which three generations eat dinner together and discuss "love" mentioning a bit of scientific fact and a change of technology nowadays. The film was released in 2013, so people talk about Skype or they use smartphones a lot. One of participants of the dinner says love is changing in this modern age because of technology. It may be true. One young girl who looks in teens and accompanies her boyfriend left an interesting question. That is like this ; "Is there any possibility of eternal love? And Does it have any meanings in this age? That's because we will separate someday somehow."

We really did not enjoy this film. It is 100 minutes of dialogue between a man and a woman. There's no plot of note. It's like being a fly on the wall listening to a regular couple talk nonsense. Ethan Hawke was excellent as usual, and I had high hopes for this given that it is 94/100 on metacritic. Perhaps it's a little too arthouse for me, but we just found it extremely boring.

I would have given this 9 if they had not chickened out at the very end.

Out of the 200ish 2013 releases i've seen Before Midnight was my absolute favourite one. I adored it. Before Sunrise, Sunset & Midnight is an amazing trilogy and a must watch.

Here is the thing: I saw Certified Copy before these films. I also did not know it was a trilogy until after I watched Before Sunrise (and that doesn't flow too well) and just last week I watched the first one and quite enjoyed it... I'm honestly shocked by how well received this one was.
The first half is quite allright but it didn't flow well initially. At the hotel however it kinda (forgive the unromantic word) shits over the first two films. They managed to convert Céline into a complete psycho and undermine everything she stood for. They were living together for almost ten years now and can get into such a petty fight? It goes as far as the oh-so-realistic-true-love-couple is OK with cheating on their soulmate (because we're so liberal)? She just rants about everything and storms out and returns to the hotel room thrice? After coming to the conclusion that you're not in love anymore what better way to fix thing is there than to go and have sex...
I was also quite annoyed by the general edgyness they have shown us and honestly; the dialogue has always been written a bit too sharp but it doesn't work for a married couple anymore. Especially when they talk that much, those topics and still revealing so much new about each other.

I'm in love with the three movies. This one was, again, a great portrait of a relationship. Now there's no casual meeting, Celine and Jesse have been sharing a life together but it's no bed of roses. Problems arise as well as self-doubt and even second guessing the choices one has made up until that moment. And yet it still manages to be romantic while showing the effort both have to put on the relationship for it to work.
