Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Despite his self-consciously obscure plot mechanics, Medem keeps you off-balance and intrigued.
Fresh: Medem packs it with so much stunning, wildly colorful imagery -- and so much sex -- that it transfixes you even when you're not quite sure what's going on.
Rotten: Between bedroom scenes, viewers may find themselves wishing they could roll over and take a nap.
Fresh: Pretty darn good, despite its smarty-pants aura.
Sex and Lucia - my #1 movie forever
I saw this film back in 2003 when I still lived in Europe and I watched a lot of foreign/independent movies. First I was not so interested, the title was not overly catchy and somehow I didn't even plan to watch it. But then I remember one of my friends told me she watched it with her husband and parents and how awkward she felt. Then it started to be interesting. So I watched it. And since then, I`m not coming off from my admiration for Julio Medem and began to watch all of his movies. By now, I think I can tell, he is my favorite director and I love most of his work: Sex and Lucia, Lovers of the Arctic cycle, Cows, Earth.. I didn't enjoy "Room in Rome" so much, but forgave him:-)
I love Sex and Lucia, because the story had million twists, the characters were very realistic, having a lot of defects and weaknesses but were still very much lovable. It was shot in a beautiful way, you almost feel the sun burning your skin. Also the film is very openly describing lust and sexuality, which we admit or not is part of our lives. Very important that although there is a lot of lust but also a lot of connections & destiny. "Suddenly, you fall in a hole and it goes right back to the middle". A must-see masterpiece!
Sensual footage but does love conquer all?
This movie is an intriguing quasi thriller/erotic love story. Two women and a man are bound by their memories and live to find each other. Unfortunately, the ending only speaks to the desperation of the human spirit. I would watch it again and recommend it but found it profoundly disturbing on the topic of "love."
