Disappointing Lack of Conclusion for a Heartbreaking Story
20 April 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The boxer Frank Diaz (John Leguizamo) loses his fight card on the Christmas Eve. He goes home and tells his wife Angela Diaz (Leonor Varela). Out of the blue, his family and he are evicted and they have to move to a homeless shelter with their children Justin and Christina. Frank has an application in a real state office that calls him to see an apartment. However Frank needs to have a labor contract to keep the apartment. Frank needs to finds a job on the Christmas Eve to have an apartment for his family. But it is not easy since he is illiterate.

"Where God Left His Shoes" is a heartbreaking movie about the desperation of a family man to find a job to be capable to rent an apartment for his family on the Christmas Eve. Unfortunately the story does not have end and become totally pointless. There is an old man seeking Frank out that is completely forgotten by the writer, maybe due to the restraint budget. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Onde Mora a Esperança" ("Where Hope Lives")
