    "It's too much"

    Sometimes it feels like getting older just means adding more regrets and sad memories to a pile that threatens to barricade the doors and black out the windows.

    But the smallest kindness can make that pile seem manageable. And having friends around can fill that room instead with light and laughter.

    Before Sunrise ends with a montage of the locations Jesse and Celiné had visited, echoing the memories of their brief time together.

    Before Sunset begins with a similar montage of places they will visit. The film feeling the same anticipation as they do at the possibility of reconnecting.

    KELLY: it's kinda cute how you are wrecking your whole life for me

    LENNY: 🥺 oh i can wreck it WAY more
