Irish Film Institute -FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL 2019: SIBYL



99 mins, France, 2019, Subtitled, Digital

This film is F-rated.

Virginie Efira immerses herself in the role of Sibyl, a psychotherapist and amateur writer. When new patient Margot (Adele Exarchopoulos), an up-and-coming actress, confesses to a tumultuous affair with her lead actor, Igor (Gaspard Ulliel), who also happens to be the ex-partner of the director (Sandra Huller, Toni Erdmann), it’s all too tempting, and Sybil borrows the scenario for her writing. It opens a Pandora’s Box for Sibyl who plunges into a dizzying abyss of contradictions and manipulations, haunted by memories of her past. MPR

Director’s Note: This stylish psycho-comedy hybrid from Justine Triet (In Bed With Victoria, our festival opening film in 2016) brilliantly depicts a woman in crisis through a mesh of interconnecting stories.
