Editorial Reviews

From the acclaimed new wave of Mexican filmmaking comes this offbeat comedic thriller starring Cecilia Roth. A woman's search for her missing husband ignites a dangerous and unexpectedly romantic adventure. It's a wild ride through the mysterious territory of identity, as Lucia finds herself in a triangle of love and friendship - with a reawakened passion for life that's different from anything she ever imagined!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Labyrinth Well Worth Entering January 16, 2004
Format:DVD
Director Antonio Serrano obviously holds his contemporary Pedro Almodovar in high esteem: he has found the same sharp edge between reality and fiction, uses some of the same actors, and most important, satisfies his audience with a first rate product.
LUCIA, LUCIA is a tour de force for the brilliant actress Cecilia Roth. Cast as the wife of a man she barely knows after many year of marriage, a man who mysteriously disappears on the eve of their Latin American holiday vacation, Roth moves from dowdy plain-Jane to sensuous beauty in the course of the story. Roth (Lucia) is a writer of children's books - silly stories about chickens and ducks illustrated by a young artist (Adrian) who is not only intelligent but also very handsome and passionate (Kuno Becker, in a career-making role - he simply has it all.) From the outset of the film Lucia talks with us, her audience, admitting that she has just related fantasies rather than truths, versions of her life that are far more intriguing than her boring existence. When she discovers that her husband has been 'kidnapped' she gathers the forces of Adrian and of Felix, an elderly gentleman who lives in her apartment (the always fine Carlos Alvarez-Novoa). This unlikely trio starts on a caper that is at once funny and tender because it is through the absurdities they encounter that each finds himself and acknowledges their mutual love. Lucia manages to show us various scenes of the same incident, each colored by her imagination and her desire to be more than she is: she has a passionate affair with Adrian who is young enough to be her son, she manages to compensate Felix for this intelligence and guidance and his obvious love for her though he is old enough to be her father!

4.0 out of 5 stars suspensful, strange, and unique August 5, 2004
Format:DVD
I didn't know what to expect from this movie. It was overall very suspensful, with lots of twists and turns. I haven't seen anything like this movie. Nothing too typical or predictable. A few scenes do not connect well together, and the movie can drag on a bit. I don't know if i could sit through it again, but it was suspensful and captivating 2 hrs of entertainment from some talented actors (and a cute Adrian)

Format:DVD
Most films claim certain amount of credibility to tell its story. `Lucia Lucia' doesn't. The film rather goes in for the unreality, or constant twisting of the conventions of all the film genre (except that of comedy, which I think is the right description of `the film). Consequently what Lucia does first with the voiceover is to apologize to us for having said a lie. And that's only the beginning of the film.

But the film is all about Lucia, and that part is true. On December 27th, at the airport, husband of Lucia (Cecilia Ross) goes to the bathroom, and never comes back. Then someone calls her, and his disappearance turns out a kidnapping case. But as I said, Lucia immediately corrects the date (it was in fact 30th), and the detective is awfully sloppy. But again, we are not supposed to believe in everything, or to take it too seriously.

While waiting for a chance to do something on her own, she enlists help from the two people living in the same building: Félix, old political refugee from Cuba, and Adrián, young handsome guy. As they delve into the mystery of Lucia's husband's disappearance, Lucia starts to be attracted to Félix romantically.

[ALL ABOUT LUCIA] As you can expect from the new wave Mexican films, the narratives are unique, cinematography is crisp, and acting (of the three principals) is superb. What divides the opinions among the viewers would be the first one, though: narrative, or storytelling. Not that it is hard to follow. It is only that the film mixes several genres - thriller, road movie, romance, etc. - and it refuses to be pigeonholed into one. The only proper way I can think of to describe the characteristics of `Lucia Lucia' is - `All About Lucia.'

Now let's talk about Lucia, or Cecilia Ross.

4.0 out of 5 stars As usual Cecila Roth shines! January 17, 2004
Format:DVD
Cecilia Roth presents a great performance in her role of Lucia, a woman trying to find her kidnapped husband. She meets two neighbors who offer her help, Adrian and Felix, and the three of them embark in dangerous adventures that are narrated by Lucia in a very peculiar way.
Since I am Spanish-speaking it was very interesting for me to see Cecilia Roth speaking with a Mexican accent; she achieves this almost perfectly and only in a couple of moments you can distinguish the easily discernible Argentinean accent. As to the performance she shows once more that a movie with her as the star can be bad, since she compensates for faults in the script, direction or even in other actors. Not that she needs to do so in this movie, since Carlos Alvarez-Novoa shines in his performance too, and the story is interesting and keeps you hooked all the time.
The only reason why I gave this movie four stars instead of five is because I did not like the ending and there is a blatant mistake in a motorcycle chase. Watch the movie paying attention and you will find the error easily ;-)

4.0 out of 5 stars A different movie that leaves you thinking... February 13, 2006
Format:DVD
Is it worth not pursuing your own dreams? Is it worth sacrificing your inner self? Is it worth letting your life rot as you mature? The answer to all these life questions is "no" if you ask Lucia Romero, the character brilliantly played by acting legend Cecilia Roth in "Lucia, Lucia", a Mexican movie based on the book "La Hija del Canibal" by Rosa Montero. And if you ask me, I agree with her.

When the man she has been married to for ten years mysteriously dissapears, she finds herself at a crux, as most of the assumptions she had been basing her whole life on, one by one, start to fall apart. In her search for new meaning, she is aided by two of her neighbors: a man almost twenty years older than her, and one almost twenty years younger.

As the movie unfolds, though there are numerous plot twists that may leave you scratching your head, overall, the movie works on several levels. It is a different movie that leaves you thinking and in the end it forces you to revisit some of the above questions about yourself. I recommend it and give it four stars.
