Lucía en el limbo

Valentina Maurel Bélgica, 2019

Diego León's rating of the film Lucia in Limbo

[3.5] Subtle and crude at the same time. Giving your main character a concrete goal and an unbelievable drive to reach it goes a long way into creating a well contained story. 'Lucía en el limbo' is a perfect example of that. Lucía's arc is clear because of how far she is willing to go to lose her virginity. By the end, she's self-confident despite being rejected. It's engaging and some may even say controversial.
