CHENNAI: Emotional but not melodramatic, strong on performance yet subtle, “Sylvie’s Love,” now streaming on Amazon Prime Video, is all about dreams and desires, hope and despair.

Eugene Ashe’s second feature (the first was “Homecoming”) is set in the late 1950s and early 1960s and follows a love story that is hard to forget — it is as tearful as it is joyful and, refreshingly, focuses on an African-American pair in a period when the community faced unimaginable hurdles.
