Isabella is a great cook, making her husband's restaurant in Bahia, Brazil, a success. To control her motion sickness, she must do the driving and be on top during sex, which drives her macho husband, Toninho, to infidelities. Heart-broken, she leaves for San Francisco, moving in with her childhood friend, Monica, a cross-dresser. To mend her heart, she makes an offering to Yemanja, the goddess of the sea. The goddess responds: Isabella no longer loves and the fish in Bahia no longer bite. Stricken, Toninho heads north to get her back; he finds her hosting a popular TV show, Passion Food, courted by its producer. Can he learn humility? Can she find happiness without him? Written by
Uninvolving, unbelievable twaddle featuring a very beautiful woman.
Low rent pseudo passion and magic, without a trace of real emotion. Visuals are below par, except for the gorgeous Ms. Cruz. Too bad she lent herself to such self-conscious arty shallowness. Otherwise I really liked it.
