Critic Reviews for After Lucia

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

After Lucia builds to an almost unbearable level of tension, and although you may think you know how the story turns out, Franco has a different idea

March 5, 2013 | Rating: 4/4

Credibility issues aside, the film has undeniable impact because the intensity and sobriety of Franco's focus make its ugliness inescapable.

[After Lucia] is a powerful study of grief and abuse.

August 29, 2017 | Full Review…

A failed script that comes to life with bad visual discourse. There's no story, no progression, no character development. [Full review in Spanish]

August 28, 2015 | Full Review…

93 more riling minutes of cinema you will not find.

November 10, 2012 | Full Review…

After Lucia is an uncomfortable and disturbing experience with a vengeful sting in the tail that sinks our already taut and wrung out emotions into even more chilling waters.

Audience Reviews for After Lucia

A strongly unsettling experience that works so well due to its great cast and effective naturalistic style using long static shots - and the result is both a deeply complex character study about grieving and an important (and urgent) social statement on bullying in schools.

Excellent movie that treats its theme very well, with long and monotonous shots but with good pace and has great performances and offers a great and strong finish.
