Movie Info

Sibyl, a jaded psychotherapist, returns to her first passion: writing. But her newest patient Margot, a troubled up-and-coming actress, proves to be a source of inspiration that is far too tempting. Fascinated almost to the point of obsession, Sibyl becomes more and more involved in Margot's tumultuous life, reviving volatile memories that bring her face to face with her past.

Critic Reviews for Sibyl

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5)

  • There's much to appreciate about the meta-commentary at the center of this lively work, but "Sibyl" ultimately becomes a victim of the same pressure to deliver a big, showy narrative that its troubled protagonist so desperately wishes she could tell.

  • It is a formulaic story about a woman who has zero redeeming features, and lacks the charm to carry that repugnance off.

  • Triet handles the material gracefully and altogether skillfully, directing star Virginie Efira to one of her most impressive all-encompassing performances to date.

  • It is not convincing, and some of the acting is not of the highest order.

  • A film that effectively plays as cinematic dessert - albeit less a choux puff than a lemon tart, with sharper notes than expected to its creamy pleasures.

  • [Director Justine Triet's] problem is that her film wants to travel through too many spaces, to unfold in too many layers and the different levels of self-fiction flow with the same intensity. [Full review in Spanish]
