Movie Info

A sly, sultry character study from filmmaker Justine Triet, SIBYL follows a psychotherapist (Virginie Efira) who decides to quit her practice and return to writing instead. As Sibyl starts dropping patients, she begins to struggle with excess time and a lack of inspiration--until she gets a call from Margot (Adèle Exarchopoulos), a young actress wrapped up in a dramatic affair with her costar, Igor (Gaspard Ulliel), who happens to be married to the film's director (Sandra Hüller). Becoming further enmeshed in Margot's life, Sibyl starts to blur past and present, fiction with reality, and the personal with the professional as she begins to use Margot's life as source material for her novel.

  • [Virginie Efira] holds this film together through its various swings, and comes off stronger for it.

  • 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.

    May 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It is not convincing, and some of the acting is not of the highest order.

    May 24, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.
