Before Sunset (2004) is an American film, the sequel to the film Before Sunrise (1995). Like its predecessor, the film was directed by Richard Linklater. However, this time he shares credit with both Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy on the screenplay. Story credit is shared by original Before Sunrise screenwriter Kim Krizan and Richard Linklater.
Delpy also wrote two songs featured in the film. A third was included in the closing credits and movie soundtrack.
This film is noted for its use of the Steadicam for tracking shots and its use of long takes, with the longest of the Steadicam takes at about 11 minutes. Noteworthy too is that the film takes place essentially in real time, i.e. the time elapsed in the story is also the run time of the film. Furthermore, the sequel was also released nine years after Before Sunrise, the same amount of time that has lapsed in the plot since the events of the first movie.
Hawke had suggested the possibility of further films in the series. He said...

An American Werewolf in Paris is a 1997 horror film about werewolves. It was directed by Anthony Waller and starred Tom Everett Scott and Julie Delpy. It follows the general concept of the 1981 film An American Werewolf in London.
The title of this film has a bit of history; when the original film was having trouble with British Equity, John Landis considered moving the production to France, having scouted locations in Paris, and were going to change the title to An American Werewolf in Paris. In the opening scene, a man is seen under attack, almost managing an escape from the Parisian sewers before an unseen creature pulls him back. Meanwhile, tourist Andy McDermott is seeing the sights of Paris with his friends Brad and Chris. When Serafine Pigot leaps off the Eiffel Tower just before Andy is about to do a bungee-jump, he executes a mid-air rescue. She vanishes into the night, leaving Andy intrigued — and also unaware that she is the offspring of the couple seen 16 years ago...,
Before Sunrise is a 1995 drama film directed by Richard Linklater and written by Linklater and Kim Krizan.The movie follows Jesse, a young American on his way to Vienna to catch a flight back home after a traumatic break-up, and Celine, a young French woman traveling back to Paris to attend school at La Sorbonne after having visited her grandmother in Budapest. They meet on a train and after talking for a while, Jesse convinces Celine to get off the train with him at Vienna so they can spend more time together.The plot is minimalist, since aside from walking and talking, not much happens. The two characters' ideas, perspectives on life, love, reincarnation, etc. are detailed and thought out. Jesse is a romantic disguised as a cynic, and Celine seemingly a romantic though with some doubts. Taking place over the course of one night, their limited time together is always on their minds, and leads to their revealing more about themselves than they normally would, since both believe they...,
Killing Zoe is a 1994 movie that was written and directed by Roger Avary. The film centers around a safe cracker named Zed who returns to France to aid an old friend in pulling off a doomed bank heist. Killing Zoe is regarded as a respected cult favorite and has been hailed by Roger Ebert as "Generation X's first bank caper movie."The film centers on Zed (Eric Stoltz), a professional safe-cracker, who comes to Paris to help a childhood friend, Eric (Jean-Hugues Anglade) with a bank heist. In the cab on the way to his hotel room, the cabbie sets him up with a call girl. He arrives at his hotel room and is greeted by call girl, Zoe (Julie Delpy). After having sex, they talk and begin to connect. They are soon interrupted when Eric barges in and kicks Zoe out of the room.
Eric takes Zed back to his place where Zed meets Eric's friends. Eric explains his plans: the following day is Bastille Day and virtually everything is closed except for the bank they plan to rob, which is a holding ...,
Three Colors: White (French: Trois couleurs: Blanc, Polish: Trzy kolory: Biały) is a 1994 film co-written, produced, and directed by Krzysztof Kieślowski. White is the second in the Three Colors trilogy, themed on the French Revolutionary ideals, following Blue and preceding Red.
This film illustrates the second theme of the Three Colors trilogy, equality, through the two desires of the protagonist Karol Karol: improving his station in life, and revenge. In contrast to the introspective, melancholy, and eventually hopeful stories of Blue and Red, White is a black comedy.
After opening with a brief, seemingly irrelevant scene of a suitcase on an airport carousel, the story quickly focuses on a Paris divorce court where Karol is pleading with the judge — the same proceeding that Juliette Binoche's character briefly stumbled upon in Blue. The immigrant Karol, despite his difficulty in understanding French, is made to understand that his wife Dominique does not love him. The grounds...,
The Three Musketeers is a 1993 movie version of the classic story from Walt Disney Pictures, directed by Stephen Herek. The original music score is composed by Michael Kamen and the cinematography is by Dean Semler.
In this version, the titular Musketeers are played by Charlie Sheen (Aramis), Kiefer Sutherland (Athos), and Oliver Platt (Porthos), with Chris O'Donnell as d'Artagnan. The supporting cast includes Tim Curry as Richelieu, Rebecca De Mornay as Milady de Winter, Gabrielle Anwar, Michael Wincott, Paul McGann, Julie Delpy, and Hugh O'Conor.
The movie is very loosely based on the novel The Three Musketeers (Les Trois Mousquetaires) by Alexandre Dumas, père. It recounts the adventures of d'Artagnan on his quest to join the three title characters in becoming a musketeer. However, this adaptation greatly simplifies and alters the story, and takes liberties with French History to the point of resembling an uchronia.
Following in his late father’s footsteps, d'Artagnan sets off to,
