Nine years after Jesse and Celine first met, they encounter each other again on the French leg of Jesse's book tour.
After the filming of Before Sunrise (1995), Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke, and Julie Delpy discussed making a sequel. Linklater considered a version to be filmed in four locations and with a much larger budget. When his proposal did not secure funding, he scaled back the concept of the movie. In a 2010 interview, Hawke said that the three had worked on several potential scripts over the years. As time passed and they did not secure funding, they adapted elements of the earlier scripts for Before Sunrise in their final draft of Before Sunset.
Do you consider the book to be autobiographical?
Jesse: Uh, well, I mean... isn't everything autobiographical?
When Celine and Jesse are entering Celine's apartment, she opens a "right hand" door, the next shot (from the inside) shows her opening a "left hand" door. It is not the same door.
