Synopsis by Mark Deming
A man in love uses a woman's misfortune to get to know her better in this romantic drama. Dolores (Alice Braga) is a student from Brazil who comes to California to study at San Diego State University. Damian (Diego Luna) is a Mexican journalist who has become infatuated with the lovely Dolores. One evening, Dolores and a handful of her classmates head down to Tijuana for an evening of partying, and Damian tags along. While dancing at a nightclub, Dolores drops her passport; Damian finds it later on and is planning to give it back to Dolores the next day when he gets a phone call from her -- she needs to go to Mexico City as soon as possible to replace her passport, and wants to know if he'd be willing to give her a ride. While giving Dolores back her passport would mean seeing her for a few minutes, driving her to Mexico would mean spending a day or maybe two with her, so he volunteers to give her a lift, wondering when or if he should tell her the truth. Sólo Dios Sabe (aka Only God Knows) received its North American premiere at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival.
