Before tomorrow…

Many years ago, in the dark ages of 2004, the universe detained me. My residency was delayed and I became without a passport. The reason I am accusing the forces of the universe for that was because in the end it had led me to something. Even when we sometimes think it leads to no where we realize that we are where we should be at that moment, and I’m glad I was that day.
In 2004, I watched a movie that represented a beautiful connection created beyond boarders, culture and believes. I couldn’t sleep that day, and I’m glad I didn’t, because it was the first time I watched the movie ‘Before Sunrise’ made in 1995; a story of how Jesse (Ethan Hawk) and Celine (Julie Delpy) met and spent a day together, leaving each other with a promise to meet again one day.

It hooked me… What will happen next? Will they meet again? That was all I can think of ever since.

Weeks later, I saw the movies box office… I never felt more excited, so much that I felt becoming a kid again.

2004 was the release of the sequel ‘Before Sunset’ it follows their story 9 years later.

Did they stop at that? No… They did a third one, also 9 years later, ‘Before Midnight‘ in 2013. I admire the writers, the actors the dialogue, and I am really inspired by their dedication to follow the story 9 years at a time.

Yesterday I got the last movie, I haven’t seen it yet. So today, and before tomorrow, I will do what I call the ‘Before Tomorrow’ movie marathon. I will watch the first, second and third movie to see how that candle started again and to see how will it end for the first time… Or will it? I’ll find out today.
