In the City of Sylvia

Available on MUBI, Prime Video
"In the City of Sylvia" is one of the most acclaimed European films of recent years and marks the international breakthrough of Spanish director, Jose Luis Guerin. In the tradition of Alfred Hitchcock, Eric Rohmer and Robert Bresson, Guerin presents the deceptively simple tale of a man seeking the woman he met six years before. With only a sketch to identify her, he searches the streets and cafes of Strasbourg, hoping to encounter the object of his desire. Seductively shot and featuring excellent performances by Xavier Lafitte and Pilar Lopez de Ayala, "In the City of Sylvia" is a sensual and enigmatic journey that beautifully captures the complexity of human emotions.
