When Adrian and Felix are on their moped chasing down Lucia's captors in the white van, Adrian is clearly driving in the beginning. He drives up on the moped, picks Felix up, and speeds away to follow the white van. However, a minute later within the same chase sequence, we see Felix driving the moped instead, with Adrian sitting on the back. See more »
"Lucia, Lucia" is a Mexican comedy/light-drama about a forty something married woman who takes up with an older man and a younger man to go in search of her kidnapped husband. What follows is, by all accounts, an unsatisfying tale of the hapless trio sorting through the foibles and mischief of Mexican bad guys, cops, and some underground movement. As a comedy/mystery story, this film stumbles around awkwardly. However, as a showcase for the beautiful title character (Roth), the film works very well. Those who expect a story may be disappointed whereas those who expect a light hearted character study of a woman in midlife working her relationships with two men may be amply rewarded. Recommended for more mature audiences into Latin flicks. (Those who enjoy this film may want to check out "Solas", a Spanish film which is also about a woman in trouble who, like Lucia, takes up with a Carlos Álvarez-Novoa character). (B-)
