    Synopsis

    A young artist searches the winding streets of Strasbourg for an old love in Jose Luis Guerin's acclaimed and exceedingly beautiful In the City of Sylvia. During a languid summer, a young man spends his afternoons sketching in an outdoor cafe. He is looking for a woman he met several years earlier. Amidst a buzz of conversation and activity, he sketches the many beautiful women around him, any one of whom could be her. Then one afternoon, he thinks he sees her, and sets off through the city to confront his memory.
