This is the sequel to the film of the same name. Ten years have passed since Ana and Oliver spent those good times in Montevideo. She leaves him to travel to Barcelona and start a new life and the poet Oliver spends time looking for another woman to make him fly. When questioned by his personalities, he embarks on an intimate and glimpse of the Old Continent in which he manages to find Ana, to realize that together they no longer fly. In this intense journey next to poetry, he meets the inevitable passage of time and the indecipherable absolution towards the rediscovery of love. And in that process, next to suicidal poetry and liberating poetry; he meets Alejandra, a beautiful circus trapeze artist with whom he undertakes an intrinsic relationship and who subtly reminds us of the poet Alejandra Pizarnik.

a little great movie
24 January 2007 | by danmensionSee all my reviews

El lado oscuro del corazon 2 is such a great movie... if your expecting to see subiela's first masterpiece El lado oscuro del corazon again then you re not gonna like this one... because this one just a little tiny small movie (not as big deal as the first one but with a same message).

This time Oliverio not only has to struggle with "death" but now as his getting older and finds himself lonely and miserable he realize the weight of time on top of him and he got to do something about it...

This one has the same magic that number one had and also has a great story, characters and music!

So sit back, grab a beer, light a candle and let this small little great movie enters your heart
