Overview

A Madrid waitress, Lucia (Paz Vega), is mourning the loss of her boyfriend Lorenzo (Tristan Ulloa), a young novelist who died suddenly under mysterious circumstances. Unable to come to terms with his death, she takes a trip to a Mediterranean island that he told her about long ago, thinking about the novels Lorenzo wrote and the way that his work moved her. In flashbacks Lucia remembers her passionate relationship with him, and tries to reconcile unresolved feelings while sorting through the events of the confusing weeks leading up to his death. Shifting time frames and memories combine with Lorenzo's stories and blur the activity of the present. Meanwhile, characters who may or may not be linked to her life with Lorenzo--Carlos (Daniel Freyre), Elena (Najwa Nimri), and Belen (Elena Anaya)--turn Lucia's stay on the island into an intriguing tangle of interconnected stories. SEX AND LUCIA, with its sultry eroticism, testing and questioning of fate and the unpredictability of life, and its brightly bleached beach scenes, is a winding, nostalgic journey. Directed by Julio Medem (LOVERS OF THE ARCTIC CIRCLE), SEX AND LUCIA was received with acclaim at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival.
