Before Sunrise. A beautiful movie. A love story.
The kind that lingers on, touches the soul, makes a difference… or so it did with me.
The story was real, honest, plausible.
The conversations were deep, intriguing, thought-provoking.
I watched it several, several years ago (school-going days) and it still remains untouched and hallowed. It easily grabs one of the top spots amidst the handful of movies I revere.
The sequels ‘Before Sunset’ and ‘Before Midnight’ had long since been out, but I never dared to watch it, lest you know… what if the magic slips away? Happens. I have this thing with movies and magic.
But finally, mustering up courage, I finally did watch it, yep both sequels back to back, impromptu (thanks to my brother who is no stranger to my drama).
And yet again, I became a part of their story, their romance, their lives again – gripped by their incredibly interesting conversations and their subtle yet strong chemistry. Seventh Heaven. No regrets.
But strangely, at the end of it all I was left facing a whole new emotion… hmmmm like I gained something new but yet at the same time it was like letting go of something that I held on for too long. Mixed emotions. A closure to something that never really began?! Haha!
Oh well… to movies, magic and more!
