All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

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

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

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

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 efficient naturalistic style through the use of 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.

Carlos Magalhăes

Super Reviewer

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.

Super Reviewer

Impressive debut by Franco is minimalist yet extremely real and disturbing without falling into common places. More indie french thriller than your run of the mill Mexican movie, Tessa Norvind and Hernán Mendoza drive the movie with restrained performances yet extremely powerful emotions. One of the best pieces of Mexican cinema in a long time. The absence of a musical score and few dialog gives it extra points. Pretty disturbing stuff yet it will linger in your head for many days...
