2013 Guide Analysis: "One of the more unique film series continues with this third feature following Ethan Hawke's Jesse and Julie Delpy's Celine who first appeared in 1995's acclaimed "Before Sunrise". Nine years later came "Before Sunset" which scored numerous awards and an Oscar nomination. Now, nine years on from that, comes what is said to be the conclusion of the story with both characters now in their early forties.

Shot in secret this past summer in Greece where the action will take place, Linklater is keeping story details under very tight wraps ahead of the world premiere next month at Sundance. The previous two films scored strong reviews and appeared on various critic Top Ten lists in their respective years. One hopes that will happen again here."
