It's a thoughtful film that forces its characters and its viewers to wrestle with the difference between great sex and true intimacy.

Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel, 2002-10-10

 

While it's being the told, the story of Sex And Lucia is sufficiently seductive to keep you from noticing the holes forming in its universe.

Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star, 2002-10-04

 

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.

Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2002-09-05

 

A lot rides on coincidence. Or fate. Or the magic pull of the moon. It all makes sense in the end.

Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle, 2002-08-23

 

Medem may have disrobed most of the cast, leaving their bodies exposed, but the plot remains as guarded as a virgin with a chastity belt. That's why Sex and Lucia is so alluring.

Marta Barber, Miami Herald, 2002-08-09

 

A byzantine melodrama that stimulates the higher brain functions as well as the libido.

Scott Von Doviak, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com, 2002-08-09

 

While the final picture may not be quite as grand as expected upon completion, the individual pieces remain strikingly beautiful.

Gary Dowell, Dallas Morning News, 2002-08-08

 

I would be shocked if there was actually one correct interpretation, but that shouldn't make the movie or the discussion any less enjoyable.

Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press, 2002-08-02

 

Pretty darn good, despite its smarty-pants aura.

Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, 2002-07-26

 

[Medem] likes to toy with the mind of the audience, and he's good at it.

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, 2002-07-26

 

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.

Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, 2002-07-25

 

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.

Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 2002-11-07

 

It's a hall of mirrors, this flick -- every one of them pretentious.

Rick Groen, Globe and Mail, 2002-10-04

 

Unfortunately, the plot becomes such a puzzle that the central characters lose their urgency and the movie overstays its welcome.

John Hartl, Seattle Times, 2002-08-16

 

Between bedroom scenes, viewers may find themselves wishing they could roll over and take a nap.

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 2002-07-26

 

Half-baked ponderings on the nature of fiction and reality.

Ty Burr, Boston Globe, 2002-07-26
