“Céline (Delpy), an easy-going Parisian, is on her way back from Budapest to study at the Sorbonne; Jesse (Hawke), a young American, is at the end of a Eurorail tour. They meet on a train just outside Vienna; by the time they reach the station, they’ve hit it off well enough for Jesse to propose that Céline spend the next 14 hours wandering the city with him, until his flight leaves for the States. Intrigued, she accepts. So begins an unexpected adventure of the heart. What’s magical about Linklater’s entrancing movie is the way he and his actors manage to convey the emotional truths that underlie all the talk as the potential lovers test each other’s opinions and commitment. Funny, poignant and perceptive, this is a brilliant gem.” – Time Out (London)
