Lucía is an anthology film, three separate stories related by the common theme of women in revolution. It tells the stories of three Lucías, one in 1895, when the Cubans fought for independence from the Spaniards; in 1933, when Cuban popular resistance against the dictator Geraldo Machado resulted in failure; in the aftermath of the victory of the revolution led by Fidel Castro. They are women from three different classes: The first is upper class, the second is from the middle class, the third is working class. The first part is particularly striking in that the framing and the musical composition coincide in a way that they remind you of the Brazilian Glauber Rocha’s details in the presentation of cruelness. read more
