Don't go in expecting Eurotrash art-porn, for the film tells a beautiful and earnestly romantic story.

Not every movie that is billed as 'erotic' deserves that distinction, but director Julio Medem's Sex And Lucia certainly does. It's the kind of intelligent, thoughtful film about sex and love that Hollywood just can't make.

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.

None of his actors stand out, but that's less of a problem here than it would be in another film: Characterization matters less than atmosphere.

Say what you will about Sex and Lucia, but don't call it boring.

Sex is one of those films that aims to confuse.

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.

Becomes richer, deeper and more interesting than just a coupling of naked bodies on screen.

It's a hall of mirrors, this flick -- every one of them pretentious.

If Sex and Lucia were any more explicit, you'd watch it in a booth and pay for it a quarter at a time.

I kept tripping over the plot's raging implausibilities and reliance on outrageous coincidence.

The film is tangled but not chaotic, thoughtful but not terribly deep. Still, it's intimate, entertaining, and most impressive, genuine.
