A Waltz for a Night

Just watched Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. I remember being bowled over by these movies before, not least because all they really did in both movies was talk. I mean, how did these movies ever get made? But they did, and one of the most magical and romantic cinematic pairings was immortalized onscreen.

This was the last scene of the second movie. Celine (Julie Delpy — who knew she could sing?? I didn’t when I first saw this movie!) sings Jessie (Ethan Hawke) a song about the night they spent together nine years ago. Hooray for second chances and do-overs, huh?

Can’t wait for the third movie.

My name is Terrie. I write for a living and blog for pleasure. Some days, I get up in the morning and know precisely what kind of day it is. At other times, I get knocked over for a loop. People seem to like confiding in me. When I was younger, I thought I knew everything and can tell you what you need to do if you ask me. Now that I'm older, I realize I don't know anything. That's been my motivation for the blog and for writing. To figure out the unknown and unknowable.
