Ivana Cornejo is just getting used to being single again after her divorce three years ago. After an exasperating call from her ex-husband, she throws her cell phone away. Fortunately, the man who finds it calls her to return it, and to her amusement they have an instant rapport. The man on the other end of the phone is León Godoy, a renowned architect with a charming voice and a charismatic personality. They schedule a date so that he can return the cell phone. When León arrives, Ivana is surprised: he is everything she had imagined, except for one unexpected and startling detail... he’s only 4'5" tall.

The Opening Film at VLAFF in 2014 and one of Argentina’s biggest box office hits in the last decade, Lion’s Heart is a truly hilarious romantic comedy that is full of heart and the joy of being a little bit different. Prepare to laugh out loud.

 

Ivana Cornejo es una abogada recién divorciada. Al perder su celular en la calle, recibe una llamada del formidable León Godoy, quien encontró su teléfono y tiene la intención de devolvérselo. En la charla telefónica se establece una gran empatía y ambos deciden tener una cita. El problema es que León mide 1,35 metros, por lo cual, a partir de ese encuentro, Ivana intenta superar esos centímetros que le faltan al hombre de su vida, enfrentando los prejuicios sociales y los propios.

Con casi dos millones de espectadores en la Argentina durante el 2013, Corazón de León se convirtió en una de las cintas más vistas en la historia de ese país; una joya como comedia romántica natural y, con una utilización de la tecnología de manera formidable.
