One of my most favourite movies of all time is Before Sunrise and tonight it was on TVO (as will be the sequel Before Sunset, also amazing, in a few minutes). I just watched Before Sunrise for the umpteenth time and was reminded again of one of my most favourite scenes in a movie. Of course, a quick search on YouTube and there it is...

In case you haven't seen this movie (btw: if that's the case you need to fix that immediately), in this scene Celine & Jesse just met a few hours ago and now they're in a listening booth in a record store in Vienna. They're clearly both smitten with each other and yet are too shy to let the other one catch them stealing glances. It's like a dance, so perfectly words but so powerfully sweet.

As an aside, this movie is from 1995. I remember seeing it in a theatre when it came out. I feel so old right now.

Happy Valentine's Day, should you be choosing to celebrate.
