The Ages Of Lulu
A scorching Spanish sexual awakening. Dec. 13, 1990 Spain 95 Min. N/A
The Ages of Lulu is a gruelling sensual odyssey from Spanish director Bigas Luna, made immediately prior to his popular trilogy Jamón, jamón (1992), Golden Balls (1993) and The Tit and the Moon (1994). Starting as the somewhat queasy story of the young Lulu’s affair with the manipulative Pablo (Oscar Ladoire), the movie takes a much darker turn once they are wed. It is conventional cinematic wisdom that there’s no such thing as sex after marriage, but here Lulu’s husband incomprehensibly leads her into blindfolded relationships with others, then is heartbroken when she reacts with disgust.
