Rating: 3/4 -- 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 buoyant, protean fable....Writer-director Antonio Serrano moves lightly among genres: comic adventure, political thriller, romantic drama...

Rating: 4/5 -- A Freudian, subconscious essay on sex, dreams and the creative process. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- As a randy film about sexy people in gorgeous places being pushed and pulled (literally and figuratively) by desire ... [Sex and Lucía] makes for an arousing good time. Full Review

Rating: B -- ...a confusing and at times silly erotic film with some interesting visual ideas.

Rating: C+ -- 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.

...Roth appears to be having tremendous fun....Jorge Garcia's superb editing and Brigitte Broch's design lend maximum pop...

Product Description:

Mexican director Antonio Serrano fuses comedy and suspense in this tall tale of children's book author Lucia (Celia Roth, of ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER fame), who becomes the center of a a big mess of intrigue when her husband mysteriously disappears. Coming to her aid are two neighbors in her Mexico City apartment building: Felix (Carlos Álvarez-Novoa), an old man who used to fight alongside Castro, and handsome young Adrian (Kuno Becker) who may be working for the terrorists who kidnapped her husband (if in fact they did). After lots of suspense and snooping, the three become close friends and decide to take an Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN-style trip into the desert. Adrian and Lucia fall in love, though their age difference is a cause for concern. Of course nothing turns out to be as it seems, even Lucia (in her offscreen narration) admits she is not always truthful; outcomes of events are changed--as is her character's hair color and apartment layout--several times over the course of the film. LUCIA, LUCIA broke opening weekend box office records when it premiered in Mexico, where it's known as LA HIJA DEL CANIBAL (the Cannibal's Daughter). Boasting passionate performances from its three actors, this is a very colorful and bouncy entry in the new Mexican cinema.
