This article discusses the ending of the Netflix film That’s Amor (2022) and will contain spoilers.

Sofia has always lived a safe, risk free life in California, failing to pursue her dream of graphic design as she wastes years of her life in a dead-end assistant job. Her world is thrown out of balance when she is fired from her assistant job.  Upon returning home, she catches her boyfriend Richard cheating on her. She immediately breaks up with him, then falls down the stairs and breaks her ankle as she is hurrying out of the apartment.  In order to recover from her broken ankle and broken heart, she moves in with her mother, Lainie.  When Sofia goes to a Zumba class run by Lainie and Lainie’s friend Juliette, they discover a flyer advertising a cooking class. Lainie convinces Sofia to go with her to the class, and it is in this class that Sofia meets Matias, a handsome Spanish chef who is one of the teachers. 

Netflix film That’s Amor (2022) ending explained

Over the course of several cooking classes and chance encounters around the small Californian town, Sofia and Matias get to know each other and their respective passions for art and Spanish cuisine, and soon develop strong feelings for one another.  Unfortunately, Matias is dating an absentee-girlfriend named Jessica who flaunts herself with several model-men on Instagram, though he seems largely indifferent about her.  But this doesn’t stop Sofia from kissing Matias, and after spending the day going on aesthetically-beautiful walks and picnics together, they sleep together.  Of course, this is about when Sofia’s ex-boyfriend Richard comes back into her life, begging her forgiveness, and trying to win her back with a necklace—despite the fact that Sofia never wears necklaces. 

If that isn’t bad enough, Jessica visits Matias at the cooking class. Seeing them together, Sofia is filled with guilt and breaks it off with Matias as she doesn’t want to be the other woman. She knows how it feels to be cheated on.  

Fully single again, Sofia focuses on her graphic design career and applies to a college in Spain, so she can finally leave California.  She returns to the Zumba class with her mother, where she discovers that Juliette is Matias’ grandmother and that Lainie was trying to set Sofia up with Matias the whole time.  

Days later, Sofia realizes that Matias has finally broken up with Jessica, but is leaving on a flight back to Spain.  In truly stereotypical romcom fashion, Sofia rushes to the airport to stop Matias before he leaves…

…she, of course, kisses Matias and he stays, and they make plans to live in Spain together as she attends school.  In short, Sofia entirely restarts her personal and professional life.
