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).
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.
...if a director isn't willing to commit to his own movie, then why pray tell should we?
A playful, though not strikingly original, engagement of the unreliable narrator, and a fluffy study of the contrast between wish-fulfilling fiction and cold, hard reality.
Lucía reveals a great deal about herself in 110 minutes of self-fulfilling narration, but imagine how much better the experience would have been had the story allowed itself to match that depth.
It's being touted as the latest chapter in the new wave of Mexican cinema, but comparing the meandering Lucia, Lucia to a milestone like Amores Perros is just plain loco.
More interested in getting to the next plot turn than in telling a coherent and compelling story.
Serrano's frequently mystifying device of having Lucía's cardboard psyche mess with the audience's minds is ultimately a confusing bore.
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.
