Beautiful and sweet love story that sadly runs out of steam during the last 1/4
22 January 2006 | by (Utah) – See all my reviews

3/4stars This starts as a magical and beautiful film about love and destiny and fate and religion. Is there a divine purpose to our lives? Many questions are pondered in this loving film.

It starts out as a simple road trip film where a Brazillian student on visa to SAn Diego goes to Tijuana and loses her passport. Then embarks on a wonderful journey with a new found friend to Mexico City to retrieve another one. The first hour is pure magic. An absolute joy to watch, full of mystery, romance, laughter, and humanity. Then as the film moves it's scenery to Brazil it dives into spirituality and faith and begins to slowly meander while still staying strong, until the last quarter relies on overdramatized cliché which does not ruin the film, but does however slow it down and change the overall tone of the film.

Overall, Solo Dios Sabe is beautifully shot and edited and wonderfully acted by everyone involved, sadly as the film progresses the screenplay slowly fizzles out towards the end. Still many many positives leave this as being well worth recommending as a wonderful epic love story.

3 stars out of 4 stars
