Cast & Crew
The film is something of a subtle accomplishment -- a commingling of froth, sensuality and moral awareness that somehow works.
Short and sweet, it's suitable for a date night that includes both a movie and dinner.
A romantic fairy tale that's light and in several ways seductive, if not exactly filling. Still, there's always something enticing for the eye.
If it were a song, it would be a happy pop number -- The Girl From Ipanema -- with a tune you can't ignore.
Woman on Top is a lot less substantial, but no less enjoyable than the original food, sex and 'magic realism' hit of 1992, Like Water for Chocolate.
