Did You Know?


Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy had an idea to just show Jesse and Celine on a typical day: Someone goes and picks up the kids and it's only later at night that they have this together moment which actually was one of the original ideas behind the title.


Jesse: If you want love, then this is it. This is real life. It's not perfect but it's real.


In dining scene (42:05) Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Anna (Ariane Labed) shown side by side but just after a shot (42:23) they are in distance.
