This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Seen it more than once. And think that this is what a romantic comedy could be like not giving up what makes good cinema. Have fallen madly in love with Paz Vega's character and made some really stretched paralels with Natalie Portman's in Closer - because of the courage to abandon someone you love who does not loves you back.
How am i supposed to forget the scene where Lucia was having a sexual intercourse with a random guy at the ocean, in the middle of the night, under the moon and stars. It's like every girl fantasy right? Or not?
Saw this when I was 18 - remembered the sex. Saw it now, aged 30 - appreciate the themes of storytelling, cosmic interference and the creative process. Sex and Lucia occurs in a totally self contained world with it's own internal laws (as all films do, but here it is pronounced). What works is the consistency of tone - it could have derailed so many times. Like the tone and you'll like this movie.
8/10 - The postmodern device of writing your own story, blurring reality with fiction meets a bright sunlit spanish coast where everything is white and light blue, meets a lot of erotica, meets David Lynch, meets even more erotica. At first it will confuse you, but you will be able to figure most of it out. And if you dont like it, you can fall through a hole and go back to the middle to rewrite your ending ;-)
