Falling in love againHighlight of the Berlin Film Festival is Richard Linklater's delightfully engaging sequel to 'Before Sunrise', says SF Said

Nine years ago, Richard Linklater won the Best Director prize at Berlin for Before Sunrise. Now valentino sale he's back with Before Sunset and it's the best film in competition so far.

It's an unexpected achievement: sequels are seldom as good as originals, and Before Sunrise seemed to end perfectly. This delicate romance was about young American Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and French valentino shoes student Celine (Julie Delpy).

They met on a train, fell in love, and spent one magical night together in Vienna. They parted with the promise that they'd meet there again, six months later. Would they? Wouldn't they? It was up to us to decide.

Now the story continues. It's immediately clear that they didn't meet again; they haven't seen each other since that night. Jessie, though, has written a novel about it, and, when he comes to Paris for a reading, Celine shows up. The film follows them through 80 minutes of real time as they try to reconnect with each other.

Like Before Sunrise, it's almost all dialogue between them, and it's fascinating to see them together again, nine years older, like a fictional version of television's 7Up documentaries. The chemistry between them remains strong, but it feels richer and deeper now, illuminating the ways that their lives have changed. In their twenties, they were full of dreams about the future; in their thirties, they're already looking back on regrets, wrong turns, disappointments.

As they circle around each other, the film goes through many phases, getting better and better as it goes on, culminating in a scene of almost weightless grace. Amazingly, it leaves you wanting to see these characters again and sooner than 2013.

Before Sunset has been the highlight of a very weak competition so far. There haven't been many big names here, and those that we've seen have disappointed: John Boorman's Country of My Skull; Anthony Minghella's Cold Mountain (already released in the UK), and Beautiful Country, based on a story by Terence Malick. New films from Ken Loach, Eric Rohmer and Theo Angelopoulos are yet to come but it's troubling to see a major festival competition approaching its final weekend in such an underpowered state.

Perhaps as a result, valentino shoes online there are some inflated claims being made for Monster, Patty Jenkins's film about reallife female serial killer Aileen Wuornos, starring Charlize Theron. Theron turns in an attentiongrabbing performance, for which she's already won an Oscar nomination, but the rest of the film just isn't of the same standard.
