Reviews


100
Los Angeles Times - Carlos Aguilar
Sweeping and flawlessly produced, Ashe’s epic works as an inherently refreshing entry in the canon of a genre designed to make us sigh with knowing elation or tear up in misery thinking about our own bygone rendezvous.
90
The New York Times - Manohla Dargis
Ashe is using a familiar, long-derided film genre both affectionately and critically to explore the gleaming surfaces of life as well as the anguish that lies beneath.
88
Chicago Sun-Times - Richard Roeper
Like the great Douglas Sirk melodramas of that time period, Sylvie’s Love is unabashedly sentimental and just gorgeous to behold — but the difference here is the terrific ensemble cast is primarily Black and Latinx.
80
The Guardian - Benjamin Lee
It’s a film that both looks and feels the part, a handsomely made love story that’s easy to fall in love with.
80
TheWrap - Alonso Duralde
Between the scorching chemistry of leads Tessa Thompson and Nnamdi Asomugha and the glorious mid-century outfits, hair, décor and cars on display, Sylvie’s Love is a delectable valentine.
