Goofs

The movie takes place in 2001 but when Lucia's colleagues talk to the police about her, a computer monitor clearly shows the Microsoft Windows Aero interface which wasn't available until Windows Vista was released in 2006. The screen, however, looks more like Windows 7 which did not release before 2009. See more »

Too stylish and too restrained
11 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Of another Dutch film which I reviewed called De poel, I said that it was very much done in the style of American remakes of Japanese horror films. Lucia de B. seems more or less to be done in the style of English detectives.

The movie aims to show the injustice and to make you feel the emotions that Lucia went through but the movie is done in such a way that I ended up looking from a distance at a stylish movie. Sure it has colors which are sombre when she's in jail and colors which are vivid when she's freed in the end but that's really not enough. OK, there's (amongst a few other shots) a rotating shot which fades to black after she's vomited in the toilet but that too is done in such a stylish fashion... It's like a shot from a David Lynch movie. It's not what works for this story in my opinion.

The way it portrays police officers and some of the people who worked with Lucia in the hospital is really, really awful. These characters are like villains the way you see them in the movies.

I also think it needed a director who was angrier (or one who was more able to express or capture their anger on the screen) in order to make it more poignant as I feel it's still too clinical now.
