Movie Info

A youthful foreigner sits sketching the diners of an outdoor café in hopes of finding the women he met there years before in director José Luis Guerín's languid, sun-soaked tale of longing. It was a long time ago that the artist met a mysterious beauty named Sylvia, and the memory of the girl has lingered in his mind ever since. Perhaps if he can capture the movements of the patrons in this quaint European café he can recognize the woman he seeks. Then, at once, the artist believes he has found Sylvia. Setting out into the streets in pursuit of a fading memory, he vows that this time he won't let love slip through his fingers.

Critic Reviews for En la Ciudad de Sylvia (In the City of Sylvia)

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (5)

If nothing else, Mr. Guerin has neatly captured the sweet, erotic alienation of being a single man at his leisure in a foreign town, dazzled by the passing procession of local beauties.

December 12, 2008 | Rating: 3.5/5

The director's near-silent tour of quaint European street scenes is even more adept at making the picturesque seem pretentious, as well as at reminding you that male-model good looks don't make antisocial behavior any less creepy.

Pure pleasure and pure cinema.

An airy, ultra-Gallic delight whose apparent weightlessness is anchored by real substance.

José Luis Guerín's fifth feature puts a dreamily minimalist spin on the Orpheus myth

November 14, 2013 | Full Review…

Sylvia is modern myth-making in a quiet register, and it's quite seductive once you give in to its playful rhythms.
