Erotically charged and deliciously intricate, this enigmatic and sensuous film beautifully explores themes of love, loss, sex and the peculiarities of fate.
Julio Medem’s Sex and Lucía begins where his previous film, Lovers of the Arctic Circle, left off. The storyline is deliberately reversed and Lucía’s fight is not towards death, but towards life, showing Medem's impeccable talent for story-telling and artistic direction.


Sex and Lucia engages mind and body with its time-bending narrative and images of beautiful Spaniards having vibrant sex. The story shifts between past and present, fact and fiction, so a plot summary won't capture it, but… A young writer named Lorenzo falls into a passionate relationship with a waitress named Lucía. But he also finds himself drawn to a young nanny taking care of a child who just might be the result of an anonymous fling Lorenzo had with a woman he met on an island the year before. Lorenzo fantasizes about the lives of all of these women until a horrific event sends him into a suicidal depression. This may sound obscure or flat, but Sex and Lucía unfolds clearly and beautifully, featuring stunning visual images of both nature and flesh, and weaving a poetic spell much like the director's previous film, The Lovers of the Arctic Circle. --Bret Fetzer
