Editorial Reviews

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: it WILL NOT play on standard US DVD player. You need multi-region PAL/NTSC DVD player to view it in USA/Canada: LANGUAGES: Spanish ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), English ( Subtitles ), ANAMORPHIC WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Anamorphic Widescreen, Filmographies, Interactive Menu, Production Notes, Scene Access, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: The Ages of Lulu is a gruelling sensual odyssey from Spanish director Bigas Luna, made immediately prior to his popular trilogy Jamón, jamón (1992), Golden Balls (1993) and The Tit and the Moon (1994). Starting as the somewhat queasy story of the young Lulu's affair with the manipulative Pablo (Oscar Ladoire), the movie takes a much darker turn once they are wed. It is conventional cinematic wisdom that there's no such thing as sex after marriage, but here Lulu's husband incomprehensibly leads her into blindfolded relationships with others, then is heartbroken when she reacts with disgust. SCREENED/AWARDED AT: Goya Awards, ...The Ages Of Lulu (UK) ( Las Edades de Lulú )

Love it or hate it...
This is a movie which generates extreme reactions. Lulu starts her sexual adventures in her early teens, marries a man who leads her down unusual sexual avenues and who finally gets her to have sex (unknowing and blindfold) with her brother. When she discovers this, she leaves him and launches into a sexual odyssey, involving sex with gay men which sees her end up as a (largely unwilling) exhibit in an S&M show.
So the question, as ever, is... is it art? Or is it just exploitation, and if so, is it sexy enough that we don't mind?
Some have criticised it for being too explicit. Others of my acquaintance have criticised it for not being graphic enough (particularly where the BDSM is concerned - `totally unrealistic' was a comment from one friend who knows about these things).
Viewed in one way, it could well be considered pretty gruelling: the process of watching Lulu's sexuality take over her entire persona and life can get a bit unsettling at times. More than one person has described it as a turn-off, a puritan warning of the consequences of sexual liberation masquerading as an erotic story. Whether or not that's true, Lulu's character comes across as fundamentally damaged rather than in control of her life, and that's uncomfortable. Safe, sane and consensual? Aught from three, I'm afraid...
Whatever, it still ends up as the kind of story one flicks through to get to the naughty bits, rather than one you stay with all the way through.

I read the book several years ago and was intrigued by the writing. The author conveyed the emotional journey of her protagonist very skillfully and with much more depth than one expects in books of this genre. Frankly I couldn't believe it would be possible to turn the book into a watchable movie so I gambled a few dollars just to see.

I was expecting poor film making, but I wasn't expecting the atrocious bootleg quality DVD that arrived. The aspect ratio is 3:4 (old fashioned TV screen stuff) and there are no subtitles. The film quality is grainy and looks as if it was ripped off a very old VHS tape. In short, I've seen Russian bootleg DVDs whose quality was infinitely superior to this product. It's worth perhaps $1.50 at the very most, so long as you don't mind the migrane you'd get if you actually tried to watch it for more than three or four minutes before ejecting it from your system and throwing it into the trash.

I purchase a copy of region 0 uncut version of ages of lulu and the story is basically about a lady whom gets married after she have some 'fobia' about sexuality. She acted stupidly to sleeping with different men after she left her husband due to the reason that her husband allow his friend to have sex with her(blindfolded). She did the above act since her husband brand her as 'dirty'. The code 2 version which I've lost from Tartan video is a censored version where the carrying sex is shorten to less than a minute, the portion(scene) before lulu give something to a man and lead her out of the house, how the actor touching lulu in a car(scene description) and the scene at gay club is a little longer. I hope the recommendation is useful for people whom are interested in full film format. I suppose the U.S version Jef Film is also a full film edition as well. Enjoy!
