    Woman on Top
    Love, sex, and food combine in this sensuous romantic comedy. Isabella (Penelope Cruz) is a master chef who suffers from severe motion sickness, requiring her to be in control of her movements at all times. This need extends to the bedroom, but her husband Tonino (Murilo Benicio), who owns the restaurant where she works, doesn't like to make love in the fashion suggested by the title. This is hardly the only thing about their relationship that she finds stifling, and when Isabella discovers Tonino in bed with another woman, she leaves for America, where with the help of cross-dressing friend "Monica" (Harold Perrineau Jr.), she becomes a star as the host of a TV cooking show, Passion Foods Live. Woman on Top was the first American film from Venezuelan director Fina Torres. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Woman On Top


      This movie must have been a real 'sleeper' when it came out because I didn't see it till it hit cable. The story is very well told --- if you're not convinced within the first five minutes then I don't know what I'm talking about. I've watched this movie more than once and would watch it again and again, in fact, I bought the soundtrack and when a friend of mine heard the music she had to see it (and bought the soundtrack) too! I don't care if the 'professonal' reviewers didn't give it more stars; YOU will enjoy this movie very much!

      Art reflects true life


      Man and Woman meet, man gets woman, man looses woman. Woman has fun without him. Man does what he has to do to get the woman to see that she is the only one for him. Everyone has another half.
