This movie is a beautiful story of an American Man and a European girl and how they met on the train to Europe. On the last day in Vienna, he decides to spend the day with her. Though they both know that this would be the only night together, they still choose to be together for the particular day and hence the movie was titled ‘Before Sunrise’.

But this movie has added spice to it as well, by making it a romantic thriller. This movie is about a married man and his life. A young woman falls in love with this married man who is a doctor by profession. The story becomes a little dangerous when his girlfriend forces him to leave his wife.

About the movie: Korean movies have stolen my heart from the time I have started watching them. They have this pure romance and innocence that makes us all fall in love with the story. The Classic (Keulraesik in Korea) sure is one of my most favourite of the lot. The Classic is a story about a young boy who is in college. One day he gets his hands on his mother’s diary and discovers a lot of secrets. He finds out about the romantic love triangle between his Mother, Father and their best friend. I would highly recommend you to watch this movie if you haven’t as yet.
