Critic Reviews for Lucia

The film -- all two hours and forty minutes of it -- says with mounting energy and comic spirit as its three episodes go on that things have now changed, but that they can change only a little while machismo still reigns.

It's not just Cuba that's changing in this black-and-white epic (the first two episodes contain gripping battle scenes); it's also the role of women.

Spanning nearly 70 years of Cuban history, this extraordinary movie focuses on three generations of women whose lives reflect the society around them.

[Solas] manages to avoid the ideological pitfall of making his women completely symbolical... But he is unable to enter imaginatively into their personal, intellectual longings because he has chosen to identify their ultimate destinies as collective.

Humberto Solás' first feature, and he managed to pour in so much the frame practically burst with guerilla aesthetics - kinetic, frenetic and exciting.

Taken together, the cumulative experience of the three Lucias over the course of nearly three hours is transformative: a multi-generational portrait of politics, culture, and womanhood in Cuba.
