Bolstered by a sterling cast of European stars, SIBYL leads us into a world of intrigue, where the barriers meant to divide private from public are unnervingly porous.
Currently working as a psychologist but desperate to revive her dream of writing a novel, Sibyl begins dropping clients to free up her schedule. Even with more time on her hands, however, inspiration eludes Sibyl – until Margot comes along. A young actress preparing for a film shoot, Margot is in crisis. Sensing that her new client’s confessions will yield irresistible fodder for her fiction, Sibyl begins secretly recording their sessions. The ruse initially seems harmless enough – Sibyl simply needs to make enough alterations to disguise her source material – but as the exchange continues, both movie and book begin to blur with the women’s past and present realities in dangerous ways.
Sultry and stylish, this offering from Triet brings a welcome female perspective to the sort of women-in-peril material that has traditionally been the domain of male directors. (source:
