Nine years after Jesse and Celine first met, they encounter each other again on the French leg of Jesse's book tour.
Jesse is in a failing marriage with a woman he married because she had become pregnant. Soon after the film's release, Ethan Hawke's real-life wife Uma Thurman, whom he had married while she was pregnant with their first child, filed for divorce for adultery.
Do you consider the book to be autobiographical?
Jesse: Uh, well, I mean... isn't everything autobiographical?
When Jesse and Celine sit on a bench in the park Jesse has his arm around Celine in one shot, in the next his arm is gone.
