Woman on Top [Film]

[Fox-Searchlight 2000] Not your fully mainstream film, Woman on Top is available in video release. Isabella is a chef in her husband's restaurant on Bahia, Brazil. He plays the wild game of entertaining the guests while she cooks. Finding him unfaithful she escapes to San Francisco and the apartment of transgendered friend Monica. Her ability to mix emotional and sexual dynamite with cooking results in her becoming a lovcal tlelevision sensation. Her husband arrives to get her back. You get to see some fairly typical San Francisco scenes, but the spiritual and cultural aspects of Brazilian culture in Bahia are wild. [June 2001]
