Critic Reviews for After Lucia

All Critics (5) | 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

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

Top Critic

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

93 more riling minutes of cinema you will not find.

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.

This was a sad. I agree with the critics that said the bullying scenes were hard to watch. spoiler* I wish Lucia would of stood up for herself!! That made me angry that she didn't.

Although not really original, it still disturbs no matter how many times one has seen similar stories before. It takes a bit slow & long building-up; even kinda static throughout the whole film. But how it handles the consequences after the turning point is still quite surprising.
