Lucia (Cecilia Roth) is a woman whose life is thrown into chaos when her husband suddenly disappears without a trace. As Lucia searches for a clue to his whereabouts, she discovers evidence that suggests her husband had a dangerous secret life he never shared with her, and she finds she isn't the only person with an interest in finding him.

Critic Reviews for Lucia, Lucia

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (22)

It's the old midlife crisis tale, just without a lot of charm or surprises.

November 20, 2003 | Rating: 2/5

Roth, as the writer-narrator and sexy center of the piece, simply shines.

August 15, 2003 | Rating: 4/5

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).

August 15, 2003

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.

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.
