Synopsis: A young man's return to Strasbourg, in search of the woman that he loved six years earlier sets the stage for the lyrical IN THE CITY OF SYLVIA, which premiered internationally In Competition at Venice Film Festival, and in the UK at Edinburgh Film Festival. The latest film by Jose Luis Guerin is an homage to cinema, painting, love and women that continues in much the same tradition as his 1997 feature Train of Shadows: The Spectre of Le Thuit, which was a tribute to the beginnings of film. Enraptured by Guerin's atmospheric attention to image and sound, you can almost smell the places he brings to life. Guerin is clearly interested in the artist and his interminable gaze on his subjects. We become the voyeurs, seeing everything through the eyes of the handsome young man. He highlights the beauty in the objects and people he observes: the way the hair falls on the back of someone's neck; the delicate smile of a person in deep thought; the way the light plays on the creases of a dress. Guerin's attention to sound is also one of the highlights of this mesmerising film. We hear the scribbling of the pencil on the page as the artist sketches, and the click-clack, click-clack of heels as a woman walks past him then out of the camera's (and our) vision. IN THE CITY OF SYLVIA imparts nostalgia for days when it was plausible to search for love, wander streets aimlessly and immerse oneself in a foreign place: the freedom to do as one pleases, and in this extraordinary film, which is rapidly becoming something of cult classic on the festival circuit, Guerin carefully crafts the pleasures of youth, art and love.
