Movie Info

Made in Cuba, Lucia tells three stories of three periods in Cuban history, each featuring a heroine named Lucia. The first playlet takes place in 1895: Lucia #1 (Raquel Revlizita) neglects her husband in order to become involved in the war against Spain -- and incidentally, with a handsome young insurgent. The second story transpires in 1932: Lucia #2 (Eslina Nunez), a divorced mother, aids in overthrowing the corrupt Cuban dictator. The third story is set somewhat indeterminately during the Castro regime. Our third Lucia (Adela Legra) is, like her predecessors, a free-thinker and a rebel, who finally stands up to her particular oppressor: her loutish husband. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

[Solas] manages to avoid the ideological pitfall of making his women completely symbolical... But he is unable to enter imaginatively into their personal, intellectual longings because he has chosen to identify their ultimate destinies as collective.

To describe Lucía as a masterpiece seems almost to belittle it since visually it is not one film but three.

By turns, it's touching, lively and nostalgic. One to see.
