After Victor rescues Joe from drowning, when they are far from the grave site, and one hour later Joe wakes up on the grass in nice dry clothes, Victor explains that they will need to go down stream and cross it but Joe bolts towards the village instead. Victor runs in pursuit after him and in one of the shots you can see Victor is running thru water beside the grave site which is by now very far away. See more »

It's bad, Joe. They're evacuating the villages. We're about to be washed out. We're hearing gunfire now.
Can you... can you get to Calamar? Can you get across the border to Columbia?
They're putting us on the bus. I don't know where they're taking us. Joe? Joe?

Dr. Joe Darrow (Kevin Costner) is a recently widowed doctor. He is grieving due to the death of his pregnant wife in a Red Cross mission in Venezuela. Although being atheist, he began to believe that his dead wife wants to communicate with him, through her young patients in the Pediatrics of a Chicago hospital.
Although using many clichés, the plot is romantic and the story is beautiful. However, the time taken by Joe Darrow to find out the meaning of the symbol is amazingly long for such an obsessed and intelligent character. Further, while his wife tries to contact him through the almost dead persons, the story is OK. But if she had the capacity of telekinesis, why not give him a clear written message? My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "O Mistério da Libélula" ("The Mystery of the Dragonfly")
