Rated NR

The tenderness and passion in Bella helped this film by writer/director/producer Alejandro Gomez Monteverde win the People’s Choice Award at the 2006 Toronto Film Festival. When a pregnant single waitress (Tammy Blanchard) is fired because of tardiness due to her relentless morning sickness, the sympathetic chef (Eduardo Verástegui) tells his manager brother that he quit. Afterward, the two ignite an inspirational love story despite the chef’s emotional past and the girl’s indecision on having the baby. Regardless of the occasional heavy-handed and contrived plot points, this film manages to live up to its name.
