In the City of Sylvia
(José Luis Guerín, 2007). Pure pleasure and pure cinema, Catalan filmmaker José Luis Gueríns fifth feature celebrates the love of looking, while placing a crafty minimalist spin on the Orpheus myth: A sensitive young romantic searches a foreign city for his lost soul mate. The drama is almost entirely visualarising not from a story situation but from fact of making a movie.
