Sex and Lucia (2002)- R
Paz Vaga plays a girlfriend of a suicidal writer-artist working on a Mediterranean vacation island. The film is very erotic but a depressing story of an artist who can no longer separate reality from his novels. The film is very explicit and has imaginative sex scenes, particularly when filmed from creative angles. Paz Vaga is beautiful and turns in a good performance. However, the storyline is frequently lost among the real and fantasy characters, and the movement back and forth in time. The many beautifully filmed underwater nude and sex scenes save what otherwise would be a very slow moving film.
