El lado oscuro del corazon (1992) is a great movie, full of poetry, or metaphores and yet, full of humour. Oh, and it has a story in it.
Then, 10 years later, the director tried again... and gave us THIS. It's terrible. Nothing to do with the first one. A simple, plain story, with too many quotations (no matter they belong to great latin american authors, they seem here too cheesy, out of place) and stupid methaphores (sometimes too obvious, some others just boring). The old characters have lost all their spirit; the new ones are just cartoons of what they could be. Their relations are so stiff that you can't belive them... Do yourself a favour. If you saw the first film, forget there was a second one. You don't need it. If you haven't, do it -watch the first one and forget there was a second try of the director of getting some easy money thanks to the 10th anniversry of his only good movie. Remember, nobody will give you back the couple of hours you'd use in watching this film. So, if you can, avoid it.
