Synopsis

Sibyl is a novelist who switched careers to become a psychoanalyst ten years ago. Driven by the desire to write again, she decides to drop most of her patients. As she is creating a void to find inspiration, a young actress in distress begs her to see her. Margot has been made pregnant by the lead actor... who is sharing his life with the director of the film. While the young woman tells all about her passionate dilemma, Sibyl, fascinated, starts to record her secretly. Margot's words will fuel Sibyl's writing, while plunging her in a vortex of her own past. When Margot begs Sibyl to join her in Stromboli for the end of the shooting, everything accelerates at breath-taking speed.

There are visually stunning scenes throughout, but the acting and writing are the pièce de résistance of Sibyl and should be exactly why you put this film on your radar as one to watch from 2019. It’s certainly going on my end of year favorite list.

It’s about as French as you can get, to a point that feels borderline absurd in places, and yet Triet handles the material gracefully and altogether skillfully, directing star Virginie Efira to one of her most impressive all-encompassing performances to date.

Sibyl is far less than the sum of its parts, and never manages to shake off a heavy tone which consistently threatens to capsize even the rare funny interludes.
