    At times, we forget about the hostage, and so does Lucia, who's probably having much more fun, sans husband. That's the charm of "Lucia, Lucia". The fallible narration will seem less fresh if you've seen "The Opposite of Sex", but it's not entirely unwelcome.

If the film went in a more personal direction, rather than a political one, "Lucia, Lucia" would've been a greater success. Cecilia Roth has a lot of chemistry with her senior, and junior companions. Their adventure is spirited, and chock-full-of jump-cuts. Expand

    mid-life crisis put to shame/blame. a very interesting interpolation of a writer's take on reality and reality. most interesting look at love and friendship.

    Entertaining movie. It was good to see Ms. Roth taking on the young man. However, after seeing other Latin American films, one gets the idea that somehow basic social values are being weakened or watered down.

    It lacks the toughness and social insights of its Mexican new wave predecessors like "Amores Perros." And even as the story of one woman's midlife crisis, it's a bit lightweight.

    Roth goes to town with this juicy part, and seems to enjoy herself immensely in this merry farce, which runs out of gas toward the end due to an over-complicated plot.

    Nicely shot and edited, but the movie is a narrative mess, which wouldn't be so bad if all it were up to was depicting Lucia's ups and downs. But the film takes too many illogical detours to be of much use.
