Wow, thank you so much Empire Magazine readers. It's the first time in my life I ever win anything! I swear to God. I've been nominated mostly not. And it's so wonderful because it's actually people who actually go to see movies and enjoy movies and not people who watch a DVD half way through and go to dinner. So you know, I made up a joke a few years ago that agents like, the different between a pimp and an agent is like the pimp.. there's no difference, the pimp but, er, no what is it? Fuck! Alright, forget it! So yeah, as you can notice I didn't prepare a speech but thank you so much.

All credit to Hawke and Delpy, who hardly seem to be acting; they just are these characters. Meeting up by (almost) chance in Paris with mere hours until Jesse has to leave, the shell-shocked pair walk the streets of Le Marais and the Latin Quarter, stumbling from awkwardly polite niceties to heartfelt confessions and anxieties touching the very core of their grown-up lives the poignancy of regret, the loneliness of failing relationships, the agonising conflict between desire and duty universal subjects that extend beyond the parameters of Jesse and Celines story and will strike a chord even with those unfamiliar with the first film.
