During a few languid summer days in Strasbourg, a young foreigner spends his time sitting at an outdoor cafe, sketching the figures of the women around him, patiently waiting for his lost love Sylvia. Then, one fine afternoon, he thinks he spots her, and sets off through the city to confront his memory.
Featuring standout performances from Xavier Lafitte and Pilar López de Ayala, José Luis Guerín's lovely, exceedingly graceful work is an homage to cinema, painting, love and women. A cult classic on the festival circuit, In The City Of Sylvia eloquently captures the feeling of being in love with love, and the youthful sense of a world filled with an almost limitless sensuality.
