Critic Reviews for Sex and Lucia
Perhaps our confusion is part of the whole idea, but Sex and Lucia would have a lot more impact if there were someone to give a damn about.
It's a thoughtful film that forces its characters and its viewers to wrestle with the difference between great sex and true intimacy.
While it's being the told, the story of Sex And Lucia is sufficiently seductive to keep you from noticing the holes forming in its universe.
It's a hall of mirrors, this flick -- every one of them pretentious.
What distinguishes Julio Medem's humid, magic-realist eroticon from the average soft-core fare is its writer-director's playful interest in storytelling as a form of sexual sublimation and release.
A lot rides on coincidence. Or fate. Or the magic pull of the moon. It all makes sense in the end.
Audience Reviews for Sex and Lucia
"The first advantage is at the end of the story. It doesn't finish, it falls in a hole. And the story starts again halfway. The other advantage, and the biggest, is that you can change course along the way... If you let me. If you give me time."
A waitress falls in love with a novelist who has a secret in his past; parts of the movie describe their real love story, and parts are dramatizations of a novel the male lead is writing, with it largely left to the audience to decide which is which. Ambitious, multi-layered story with great performances and cinematography; the brief explicit sex scenes are a gimmick.
The earlier film by Julio Médem (Lovers of the Arctic Circle) is a prelude to the kind of cinematography that this Spanish film director/writer presents here. I have read most of the other comments, but they don't do justice to it, mainly because of the lack of understanding the original tongue of this film. The screenplay is excellent, full of metaphors and a rich use of very carefully chosen words. People who consider this film just an excuse for depicting sex scenes as the highlight of the movie are pretty much clueless. It is more than that, it is the complex storytelling that tangles the characters in this movie and the way that is told. Compelling and breath-taking. A must see.
