(Slight word of warning, if necessary: this is just over 2 hours long, and being with subtitles and full of dialogue, much attention is needed thoughout)

Sensually the film has much to enjoy - the mediterranean sunshine, beaches, plenty of (often naked) eye candy for both sexes, and a decent soundtrack with notably a piano playing at 'significant' points in the flim

As others have commented the film revolves mainly around half-a-dozen late twenty-somethings and their intertwinings, emotional and physical, with a couple of very explicit sex-scenes both with brief (blink and you'll miss them) pornographic moments. But I'm going to sound a bit pretentious and suggest that the other viewers have mostly missed the main theme of the film

Although Lucia (and the sex) major in the film the main character for me is Lucia's boyfriend, Lorenzo. And what does Lorenzo do? He's a writer! And what do (fiction) writers do? They make things up! And that to me is what this film is really about - the art/process of writing, using imagination, making things up, and living/not living in what others see as the real world

Arguably the writer and director of the film are indulging themselves regarding the creative/writing process: its benefits (for the writer) and the effects it has on their lives and other people they know, and the rest is essentially subtext. Both Lorenzo and Elena separately say something like: " .... the beauty is you can stop half-way through and start again". Stop and restart what? What is the signifcance of the hole in the beach? Is anything/anyone ever actually seen there? Where does a writer, or anyone when 'creating', go? At one point Lorenzo, seeing the effect his story/writing has on Lucia, dashes off saying: "I must kill them off!" With a gun?

If you’ve ever scoured a ‘World Cinema’ section, you’ve probably seen the picture of a windswept Paz Vega + red dress + bike + penis-shaped lighthouse? Guess what? That iconic image isn’t even in the film! FAIL! Back to the movie though: unsurprisingly, there’s random nudity and sexual acts throughout, which feel there for no other reason that to ‘kink’ up the film, and make the “tortured writer and other young, attractive people in personal crises” storyline a bit more interesting.

It peaks in a bizarre porno side-story in the middle act. The visuals are striking (unique, bold, washed-out, faded etc) and often beautiful, but continual emphasis on sun, moon and sea feel a smidgen on the ridiculous and end up blurring the boundaries between which scenes is dreams/fantasies, flashbacks, or scenes from the writer’s story. Paz Vega (Lucia) is great – and lets face it, who WOULDN’T want a stalker like her!?!? The cast in general are all good, and pull off some (melo)dramatic scenes when required.

All of the artsy-rich visuals, vague symbolism and explicit scenes means that the film overstays its welcome by the end, and when you cut them all out, you’re left with a half-decent melodramatic story and some dramatic suckerpunches – it’s definitely destined to stay out in the ‘arthouse’. Sex and Lucia is unsurprisingly less of a cinematic classic, and more of a piece of smutty art.

Score: 4/10

The plot is girl meets boy has one night stand. Boy meets another girl and they move intogether that same night. Boys friend is the catalyst for the whole plot turning sour. Boy then discovers he has daughter from one night stand, has affair with babysitter and daughter gets tragically mauled to death by family dog. Boy commits suicide. Girl goes to live with one night stand girl.
There are a few erections included in sex scenes.
There is some lovely scenery, but I felt v unnerved putting a dead child and sex together

This film is beautiful. It takes the viewer on a painful but incredibly rewarding journey, somehow effortlessly getting away with convenient plot twists which would be impossible to not view cynically in any other film. The craftsmanship of Julio Medem is as expected second to none, and his creation is one of the most original films I have experienced. Excellent acting, stunning cinematography, and a story which touches your soul. I cannot recommend 'Lucia y el sexo' highly enough.

Spanish are one of my favourites in world cinema and this is a classic ; a crazy odd story dividing what is real , what could be real and what could be a writer playing tricks . Beautiful actresses [ young Paz Vega and Elena Anaya before Almodovar made them stars] , erotic scenes that actually look beautiful and a fun magic realism plot . Perfect.

This movie keeps you gripped from start to finish. A couple have a fling on a romantic island. Years later a new love comes into his life but the consequences of the past return and with terrible consequences. This movie has it all. It's erotic, beautiful island scenery gives great atmosphere to this emotionally charged tale of lust, consquences, the past unexpectedly offering windfalls, then a tragedy occurs bringing about painful re-unions. The lives of his past and current loves become overlayed as the story reaches a conclusion that you hardly dare believe would happen. Big lump in the throat garaunteed. You will watch this over and over.
