(2001)3.5Adam BregmanA romantic and gorgeous film, Lucia Y El Sexo has a serpentine plot that viewers may not be able to keep up with. But it hardly matters as this film is a delight for the senses in every other way. There's plenty of sex served up hot and steamy, a beautiful island where Lucia strolls around naked, and luscious cinematography that focuses on both bodies and countryside. Lorenzo (Tristan Ulloa) is a less than successful novelist, but he has inspired one avid fan, Lucia (Paz Vega), and the scene where she meets him in a restaurant and immediately asks him to move in with her is a romantic knockout. Their relationship sours as Lorenzo discovers that he has a child from a one-night-fling a few years back. He tries to get close to the kid, which fuels his writing, and has an almost fling with his daughter's nanny. From there, the film features some improbable coincidences and a bit of sentimental mush, but this in no way takes away from this completely engaging work. Lucia Y El Sexo is a mature film about sex and relationships that is both thoughtful and very hot.
