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

...LUCIA, LUCIA is a charming romantic fable....Serrano has a way with actors...
Los Angeles Times

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.
Philadelphia Inquirer

Rating: 3/5 -- It's a thoughtful film that forces its characters and its viewers to wrestle with the difference between great sex and true intimacy.

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.
