|Beautfully Touching - 4.5/5|
For sheer acting talent you can't fault either Ethan Hawke or leading lady Julie Delpy. The amount of lines they must have had to learn for this film was itself incredible. The first scene must have lasted at least five minutes without a single cut. What Delpy and Hawke managed to do so brilliantly was make it feel like like a film and more like a real life situation along with a real life relationship. Because of this the film was touching
and beautiful in every aspect.
The team behind this film must not be overlooked. The film was nominated for an Oscar for Best Writing: Adapted Screenplay which is evidence that this film punches well above its wait. This film shouldn't be as good as it is when taken at face value. However, director Richard Linklater and company bring us a beautiful masterpiece with stunning cinematography and a touching and heartfelt plot with perfect casting. It truly is very hard to find fault with this film.
