"Sibyl" Stuns Audiences with Masterful Editing

 

“I found a description that was good, I don't know how I composed the character, but for me it was more like a decomposition of the character.” This is what actress Virginie Efira mentioned this morning while explaining how she prepared to play her role in last night’s premiere film Sibyl.

 

The film follows a therapist, played by Efira, who chooses to quit her job to pursue her longtime aspiration of writing a hit novel. Just before she quits, she decides to hold on to one last client as she uses the events and the drama patient’s personal dilemma to help formulate her novel. The film also stars Adèle Exarchopoulos, Gaspard Ulleil, Niels Schneider, Paul Hamy, and Sandra Hüller.

 

 

Earlier this morning at the film’s press conference, director Justine Triet explained how because the film uses so many flashbacks to explain the characters’ plights, much of the character development was brought about when making the film during the editing process. “The film is impossible really to understand… the film was really created during the editing,” she mentioned. Gaspard Ulliel agreed by saying “There were so many different nuances in the different scenes that I believe Triet was able to create the characters through editing.”
