Number of Times Seen – 1 (18 Nov 2014)
Brief Synopsis – Once again we pick up with the lives of Jesse and Celine 9 years after their previous meeting and 18 years following their initial encounter this time in Greece.
My Take on it – I was quite skeptical that this premise would work when I viewed the original, but now two sequels along, I must admit that I really enjoy visiting these characters and learning where nine years have taken them in between our encounters with them.
Director Richard Linklater and actors Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy do a wonderous job of continuing the story of these two accidental lovers.
I wasnt sure how and where they would decide to have the characters meet this time that would be believable, but it was done in a way that I wouldn’t have expected and was once again unique.
The script is great and the conversations seem to flow very believably and equal if not slightly surpass the previous two scripts.
I wonder if they plan on doing this again in 2022.
I sure hope so.
Bottom Line – Once again the trio of Linklater, Hawke and Delpy give us an interesting and entertaining peak into a relationship and its evolution over the years. Great script that equals both previous ones. Highly recommended!
