This chapter discusses Julio Medem's film Lucía y el sexo. Lucía y el sexo is a postmodern film about authorship that recalls the works of the writer Paul Auster and the Basque author Miguel de Unamuno. Medem wrote almost eighteen drafts for the script, and, due to the delay caused by the several drafts, had to assemble a very different cast for the film from that which he had imagined initially. The filming took thirteen weeks with a crew of fifty-nine, far removed from the tiny project that he had originally envisaged. At the heart of Lucía y el sexo lies a complex interdependence between Medem and Lorenzo that has parallels in the relationships of the writer and the reader, the filmmaker and his audience, and the artist and the critic. The film was distributed throughout Europe and the new markets of Croatia, Turkey and Israel.
