September 10, 2002
Julio Medem's sexy road movie is an "Y Tu Mamá También" lite that arouses the senses as much as it does the imagination.

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.

All very stylish and beautifully photographed, but far more trouble than it's worth, with fantasy mixing with reality and actors playing more than one role just to add to the confusion.

A lot rides on coincidence. Or fate. Or the magic pull of the moon. It all makes sense in the end.

For those of an indulgent, slightly sunbaked and summery mind, Sex and Lucia may well prove diverting enough.
August 16, 2002
Unfortunately, the plot becomes such a puzzle that the central characters lose their urgency and the movie overstays its welcome.
August 15, 2002
Medem hops through time, dances through the weaving journeys of the characters, and blurs the boundaries (real life and) fantasies.

'[Sex and Lucia]is so seductive and profound, it's as if we're witnessing a Greek myth coil and flower...'

This is a beautiful movie with gorgeous locations but at times it's hard to tell what's really happening and what's just a chapter in the writer's story.

Medem may have disrobed most of the cast, leaving their bodies exposed, but the plot remains as guarded as a virgin with a chastity belt. That's why Sex and Lucia is so alluring.

August 9, 2002
A byzantine melodrama that stimulates the higher brain functions as well as the libido.
August 8, 2002
With or without the sex, a wonderful tale of love and destiny, told well by a master storyteller

While the final picture may not be quite as grand as expected upon completion, the individual pieces remain strikingly beautiful.

If you removed the show-time sex, would more than a handful of festival-fixated Americans bother to watch this? Unlikely.

I would be shocked if there was actually one correct interpretation, but that shouldn't make the movie or the discussion any less enjoyable.

A visually flashy but narratively opaque and emotionally vapid exercise in style and mystification.

July 26, 2002
It's warm and open to the idea of sex, unlike other recent films -- such as Romance, Lies, Fat Girl and Intimacy -- that purported to explore sex, but in the end were just as repressed as any Hollywood movie.

Pretty darn good, despite its smarty-pants aura.

Between bedroom scenes, viewers may find themselves wishing they could roll over and take a nap.
