About The Product
Woman On Top was the first American film from the Venezuelan director Fina Torres. The movie stars Pen?lope Cruz, Murilo Ben?cio and Harold Perrineau Jr. This Fina Torres movie was screened in the 2000 Cannes Film Festival.
Isabella (Penelope Cruz) is an exceptional chef in the state of Bahia in Brazil, where she runs a popular restaurant with her husband, Toninho (Murilo Ben?co). She however has an unusual motion sickness problem, which makes her to be in charge of her life all the time. She cannot fly on a plane or ride in a car; she needs to use the stairs instead of the elevators and must always be on top during sex. Undermined by this, Toninho eventually cheats on her. When Isabella catches her husband's affair, she leaves to San Francisco and moves in with her drag-queen friend Monica (Harold Perrineau Jr).
During the course of her futile search for a job, she makes a deal with the sea goddess to never love Toninho again. Soon, Isabella lands in a local TV show and she is an instant success all over the world. Meanwhile in Brazil, Toninho's restaurant is losing out on the popularity without Isabella. Sooner or later Toninho sees her on TV and tracks her down to San Francisco to win her back. After a series of misadventures and mystical events, the movie comes to a delightful end.
Woman On Top (2000) was released in 2011 by 20th Century Fox in DVD format. It has been given an A rating. It has a run time of 91 minutes and is in English.
