About this movie

An American college student (Academy Award-nominated Ethan Hawke - "Training Day," "Snow Falling on Cedars") is 14 hours away from leaving Europe and returning to the United States. But a chance encounter with a French student (Julie Delpy - "An American Werewolf in Paris," "Europa, Europa") leads to a spontaneous and ultimately romantic excursion to Vienna where the two share their experiences about life and love before he heads back home. Set against the charm of old-style Europe, their passionate first kiss won an MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss. An intelligent and moving romance written and directed by acclaimed independent writer/director Richard Linklater ("Waking Life," "SubUrbia").

I don't usually watch romantic movies, but this is a flawless film. Great acting, amazing script and writing, charismatic characters with great chemistry, beautiful story, in fact, I'd be surprised if you don't shed a tear or two at some point. Totally worth a watch. Normalmente no veo películas románticas, pero esta es perfecta: grandes actuaciones, un guión impresionante, personajes carismáticos con mucha química, una historia hermosa y conmovedora, de hecho, me sorprendería mucho si no soltaras una lágrima o dos en algún momento. Altamente recomendable.

Most people just don't like these type of movies. The plot is just very simple but when you look at the screenplay and cinematography, and the characters' perspective in life, you'll fall in love with them. Jesse and Celine both embodies the ideal man and woman.
