Lucia, Lucia (2003)



Critic Consensus: A relatively simple mid-life crisis story is burdened by overly cumbersome plot devices.

It's the old midlife crisis tale, just without a lot of charm or surprises.

Roth, as the writer-narrator and sexy center of the piece, simply shines.

I love a good story, too, but I prefer one that actually goes somewhere (although, as joy rides to nowhere are concerned, this one is a beaut).

Top Critic

Despite the potential for menace implied by its set-up, Lucia, Lucia is finally about finding the opposite.

Lucia, a writer of children's books, dips in and out of fiction in her own life, the line blurring so often that it's hard to tell what's real and what's fantasy in Lucia, Lucia. It's even harder to care.

Lucia, Lucia is nicely shot and edited, but the movie is a narrative mess.

Audience Reviews for Lucia, Lucia


Extraordinary Mexican romantic adventure of Lucia, played by Cecilia Roth, finds herself in a triangle of love and friendship are his neighbours, an old man and a young man. I like the love scene between Lucia and a young man that gives me good memories.
