The best sequels look forward to new storytelling possibilities rather than back to the formula that made the first film a success.

That’s what Richard Linklater’s Before Sunset (2004) achieves so masterfully. It catches up with Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy) nine years after the events of Before Sunrise (1995) when they fatefully met aboard a train to Vienna, spent the day touring the city, fell in love, then parted.

The first film is all escapist fantasy. The second concerns itself with shattered expectations, the sadness of time’s passage and regrets over the folly of youth. Like all essential sequels it elevates its predecessor. (AF Archive/Alamy)
