Cruz stars as a Brazilian chef in San Francisco who insists on being on top both in the kitchen and in bed. Cruz fans won’t leave feeling hungry, at least when it comes to romance. ”We filmed some of the lovemaking sequences in a small village in Brazil,” says director Torres. ”Penélope was screaming so loud and passionately that the whole village came to see what was happening.”
