Lucia, Lucia

Lucia, Lucia ★★ La Hija del Canibal; The Cannibal's Daughter 2003 (R)

Middle-aged Lucia (Roth) is the unreliable narrator of this Mexican fable. Lucia's husband, Ramon (Moreno), disppears in the Mexico City airport. Since their marriage was unhappy, maybe he decided to abandon her, or maybe Ramon was kidnapped. Since the police are no help, Lucia turns to two neighbors for assistance—Felix (Alvarez-Novoa), an elderly Spanish Civil War veteran, and young and handsome Adrian (Becker). There's a botched ransom drop and Ramon's exposure as an embezzler and Lucia's tryst with Adrian and many, many red herrings. Maybe Lucia is just spinning one big tale (she turns out to be a writer). And maybe it just doesn't matter. Adapted from the novel “La Hija del Canibal” by Rosa Montero. Spanish with subtitles. 113m/C VHS, DVD . MX SP Cecilia (Celia) Roth, Carlos Alvarez-Novoa, Kuno Becker, Jose Elias Moreno Jr., Margarita Isabel, Javier Diaz Duenas, Hector Ortega; D: Antonio Serrano; W: Antonio Serrano; C: Xavier Perez Grobet; M: Nacho Mastretta.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
