  Sunrise   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Sunrise was a US/European hybrid of themes, and one which failed to satisfy the demands of audiences either side of the Atlantic.
Sunrise is one of the few silent films to justify the fears of critics such as Bela Balazs and Rudolf Arnheim that adding sound to film would destroy the uniqueness of high-art silent cinema.
Sunrise is one of the great cinematic love stories of all time- it's just a shame noone could recognise it as such at the time.

 Sunrise / 1927 / Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau / F.W. Murnau / Film review / Silent film
Sunrise, F.W. Murnau’s timeless classic of corruption, redemption and true love, is widely regarded as one of the most exquisitely realised of all silent films, and arguably one of the greatest films of the Twentieth Century.
Sunrise is a film of contrasts — the mood shifts from extremes of dramatic intensity to out-and-out farce and you are never quite sure where the film will end up.
It is also a film with a striking poetic form, rivalling some of the greatest works of literature in its effective and innovative use of imagery and symbolism to convey meaning and emotion.

 DVD Times - Sunrise
After the American success of his earlier film The Last Laugh (1925), Fox Studios enticed F.W. Murnau, the legendary director of the silent classic Nosferatu (1922) over to make a film in America in 1927, promising him carte-blanche, whatever funds he required and complete artistic freedom to make whatever film he wished.
The 1927 film has been fully and beautifully restored and presented by Eureka on a 2-disc Region 0 set, presenting the film with a choice of soundtracks as well as a substantial number of extra features and supporting material.
Sunrise doesn’t make use extensively of intertitles, and while not exactly a talkie, it is not strictly a silent film either.

 The DVD Journal | Reviews : Sunrise: Fox Studio Classics
Sunrise took all that to a new level as the most elegantly expressive and visually sophisticated Hollywood film to date.
The influence its lush and atmospheric cinematography had on later films such as Citizen Kane is honored, and among the whole of Hollywood silent cinema it stands at the front of the crowd with few peers.
He follows, and the film's center section takes place in the City (a remarkable set complete with bustling streets and a Luna Park fun center), where the Man and the Wife seek out and, in a church where a wedding is taking place, find their reconciliation and redemption.

 A Shadow Before Sunrise - a film by Jacob Strunk
The original plan was to go forward with a feature film entitled Foursquare, but when inspiration strikes, it strikes hard, and the seeds of the film that would become A Shadow Before Sunrise planted themselves in his head.
Casting the film proved to be harder than expected and both open and invite-only casting calls were held in Los Angeles, with a few hundred people submitting for the film and almost a hundred reading for the available parts.
Sunrise grew and changed and evolved of its own volition and that, more than anything, is what makes films real.

 Before Sunrise
The thing that drives Celine and Jesse's relationship and ultimately the film is their mutual interest in coversation and their willingness to engage in it throughout the film.
This is the dynamic of this film and in the long run what makes it so believable and interesting as these two strangers in the night begin to actually articulate their innermost feelings, because there is literally no tomorrow for their relationship.
This film shows some depth and charisma that we haven't seen from them before, as you become more and more charmed by their ability to seem natural while delivering page after page of screenplay.

 Review: Before Sunrise   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
For this film to work, they have a threefold task: embrace their characters, attract each other, and connect with the audience.
This film is an amalgamation of such memorable scenes, yet, as they saying goes, the whole is more than a sum of its parts.
Before Sunrise speaks as much to the mind as to the heart, and much of what it says is likely to strike a responsive chord -- a rare and special accomplishment for any motion picture.

His new film, Lord Of War, is the story of an amoral arms dealer (Nicolas Cage), a morality tale with a clear political point of view that still supplies the guns and girls that audiences seem to require.
After filming it, "I decided I didn't want to be an actor and I went back to college, to NYU as an English major.
The film came out shortly after Hawke's divorce, and naturally critics jumped on the overlap, seeing the miserably married Jesse as a piece of autobiography.

Before Sunrise is one of those films that really is set apart from most of the "romantic" films that have come out of Hollywood.
This film took me back to my own youth, a big chunk of which was spent wandering around Europe seeking that special someone and trying to put together a career that made sense.
Before Sunrise is the story of two young travelers (Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy) on a train who disembark in Vienna, Austria on a whim.

 Sunrise (1927)
Sunrise (1927) is German director F. Murnau's compelling American debut - his first project for Hollywood's Fox Film Corporation (and William Fox), but planned in Germany.
The sensational opening of Warners' film overshadowed the release of Fox's most expensive silent film to date, and it failed at the box-office due to its high cost.
Released in the first year of the Academy Awards, the film was honored with four nominations and it won all but Interior Decoration.

 Combustible Celluloid film review - Sunrise (1927), F.W. Murnau, George O'Brien, Janet Gaynor, dvd review
Sunrise is the most exciting kind of movie there is. Very few times in the history of movies has an artist proved himself in outside of Hollywood, and was then invited into Hollywood and given enormous free reign and a huge budget to create a masterpiece.
Sunrise is directed by German expatriate F.W. Murnau, who in Germany made the films Nosferatu (1922) (based on Bram Stoker's Dracula), The Last Laugh (1924), and Faust (1926).
In Murnau's film, the attempted murder happens quite quickly, and the bulk of the movie is the couple's day in the city.

 FILM REVIEW -- Beautiful `Sunrise' Over Vienna
`Before Sunrise'' is about a young American man and a young French woman who meet on a train in Europe, get off together in Vienna and spend 14 hours walking around the city before separating, probably forever.
The film, directed by Richard Linklater and written by Linklater and Kim Krizan, and now available on home video, eases viewers into a unique participation, in which you see the characters both as fictional entities and as abstractions, virtual stand-ins for themselves.
Their first conversation, in the lounge car, plays as completely off the cuff, yet it introduces some of the film's ideas, among them that life is dull and much too short.

 Movie Review - Before Sunrise - eFilmCritic
I was quoted on the back of the Australian video release of What Dreams May Come, as saying it was "the film of the year." I shed tears at the end of Message In A Bottle.
When Linklater found critical acclaim with his first film, Slacker, it was much the same - plenty of talk, no story, just characters and locations and a lot of theory.
If all Linklater was trying to do with Before Sunrise was create a harmless and forgettable 'one night romance', he pulled it off with aplomb.

 Before Sunrise (1995): Reviews
Before Sunrise is a film that first startles you with its simplicity, then bowls you over with its complexity.
Delpy and Hawke begin to grow on you and Linklater and his actors achieve a point midway through the film when the characters are so attractive and smart and emotionally daring that you'll be happy to spend the night with them.
While I found Before Sunrise to be warm and optimistic, I though Before Sunset was bitter and realistic, but that honesty alone makes the film a gem as well.

 Sunrise Review Movie Review Film Sunrise: George O'Brien, Janet Gaynor, Margaret Livingston, Bodil Rosing; Review by ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
One needn't necessarily be a fan of silent film in order to appreciate the majesty and scale of F.W. Murnau's 1927 masterpiece "Sunrise," a glorious cinematic feast of love as seen through the eyes of a filmmaker who obviously cared a great deal about this project.
As his first feature film debut in America, Murnau's film came at the end of the silent era, and sadly enough, its theatrical release on September 23, 1927, was overshadowed by that of Warner Bros. "The Jazz Singer," which was the studio's first feature to use audible dialogue along with the images.
The second half of the film finds our married couple coming into their marriage anew, as if they are newlyweds (there is even one sequence in which they witness another couple's nuptials, and their reconciliation afterwards is so beautiful it brings tears to the eyes).

 Amazon.co.uk: Sunrise [1927]: DVD   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Beginning as a prototype film noir in which a farmer (George O' Brien) plans the murder of his wife (Gaynor) with his vacationing lover from the city (Margaret Livingstone), the film develops from tense thriller into a story of reawakened love and redemption.
The film also boasts a commentary by John Bailey: apart from talking a little too much about how beautiful the lighting is, Bailey offers seriously in-depth knowledge about the film and about Murnau that really puts everything into historical context and explains the constant technical ingenuity.
Fox told Murnau to take his time, to make any film he wished, and Sunrise was completed without any studio interference — as though with a dying flourish in a medium which at that moment had achieved a startling richness of expression.

With colour negative film, bracket by at least one stop, and if you don't mind using up some extra film, it may be useful to do +/-1 and +/-2.
Film, as another mentioned produces images that may not be what you shot but rather the tech at the labs' interpretation of what you shot.
The best advice is to do it with a slower film than Kodak Gold 400 (Fuji Velvia with an ISO of 50 is one of my favorites) and you will want to stop your lens down to go for all the depth of field that you can, and that means a slow shutter speed.

Even if a person has never spent the entire night wandering around Prague with a stranger who seems as familiar as a long lost friend, they can certainly appreciate a time when their responsibilities were so few that they could spend a whole night just talking.
The film is really about relationships, and it has made me question my relationships thoroughly, or at least my approach to them.
I think this film has made me realize that many of us, myself especially, tries to hold onto friendships that may best be left to go on their own way.

 MURNAU - Eleven Days! 13 Films! at Film Forum in New York City
One of the last and greatest of silent films as F.W. Murnau and his screenwriter Carl Mayer — fresh from their German triumph with The Last Laugh — were given an almost unlimited budget and artistic freedom for their first Hollywood picture, creating a nearly title-less visual poem.
Independently filmed on location in the South Seas, initially in collaboration with pioneer documentarist Robert Flaherty, this was Murnau’s last film, only premiering, quite successfully, after his death.
Film Forum is located at 209 W Houston Street, between 6th and 7th Avenue, in New York City.

The film was acclaimed for its authenticity and location photography, though critics largely ignored the predictable story and weak performances.
The filming and projection standard for sound films is 24 frames per second (fps), but silent films would be filmed and shown at speeds ranging from 12-26 fps.
Sunrise ran for 28 weeks in its Manhattan showcase engagement, and it was important to Murnau's sponsor, William Fox, that the film be seen as a success.

 The Edge film, DVD, video: Before Sunrise   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Linklater's third film retains much of the un-tricksy style of his marvellous first two films, but is clearly a work from somewhere else.
Before Sunrise is basically just that - two young people enjoying one another's company, making confessions, trying to make some sense of life, and all to the background of one of the world's most beautiful cities.
Sometimes it works - the pair of actors who invite Jesse and Celine to their show are a delight - but a belly dancer the couple stumble across in the street, a man who writes poems for money and, most cringe-making of all, an extraordinarily crass fortune teller, beggar belief.

 IOFILM.CO.UK - Sunrise DVD review
For a film so old and with no surviving master print, it is both inevitable and perfectly acceptable that this newly restored high-definition pillarboxed transfer should retain some flaws and scratches, but there were also some more evitable digital artifacts in my copy.
Murnau's 4 Devils: Traces Of A Lost Film (40min) is a fascinating and impressively rigorous attempt by Janet Bergstrom to reconstruct the circus-set film that Murnau made for Fox immediately after Sunrise.
It also includes an excerpt from Lucy Fischer's bfi study of Sunrise (1998), arguing that Murnau's treatment of the city/country opposition is far less simplistic than Robin Woods and others have suggested.

 Guardian Unlimited Film | Reviews | Sunrise
To the modern eye, it looks like a fairy-tale notionally transferred to a modern setting, based on a simple narrative system of dualities: good and bad, country and city, sweet blonde wife and wicked brunette mistress.
The opening scenes look very Hitchcockian: Sunrise has a quite brilliant moment of suspense as the wife's trusty dog realises there is something wrong when she is taken out on to the lake and, barking frenziedly, jumps aboard the rowing boat.
The crowd scenes in the city feel very like Hitchcock too in their blend of tension and comedy.

Bertolucci has said that film is properly concerned with the present, whether that present is 10 years or a hundred years ago.
