The Maurice Ravel is the lovely name of the Paris-Munich express, electrically humming along one of the platforms of the Gare de l'Est in Paris; and then it glides out from under the great iron and glass vaults of the station, gathering speed, and I am on my way to Strasbourg. That is only a four-hour rail trip from Paris. When you consider the journeying to and the waiting in the airports, it makes not much sense to fly. In the winter twilight we pull into Strasbourg.

"In the City of Sylvia," a 2007 film by the Spanish writer and director José Luis Guerín, runs a mere 80 minutes and has almost no dialogue and the barest semblance of a plot. But from seemingly minimal means, Guerín fashions a gorgeous object and an endlessly suggestive experience: a love story, a city symphony, a surrealist fable and a self-reflexive meditation on the thrill and the danger of looking. A cult hit on the festival circuit — new to DVD May 24 from Cinema Guild — "Sylvia" follows the romantic quest of an unnamed young man over three days in the French city of Strasbourg.

The four men were handed prison sentences ranging from 10 to 12 years, capping a closely watched case that investigators considered important to understanding the workings of Al Qaeda throughout Europe.

The commission faces dissolution Thursday if the 626-member parliament in Strasbourg, France, musters a two-thirds majority in favor of a censure motion.
