The expected consequence of one of the most remembered, recommended and successful films of the new cinema. Ten years have gone by and the extravagant Oliverio is determined to search for the ideal woman. Now, the other shore is Spain, where surprising love reunions await, new poetic adventures and a bundle of transformative experiences. All this energized by the insatiable spirit of Oliverio, which continues as always, to feed on the creations of the great poets.

It is not usual in Argentinean cinema, and perhaps it is a unique case, the accomplishment of a successful film, and so much time after the first one. The inevitable initial question is “Why El Lado Oscuro del Corazón II?”. I would add a second question “Why ten years after the first part?” Olivero was always for me “a space” to talk about many things that would synthesize in “masculinity”.
In proposing to continue with the story, the first thing I thought and that tempted me was. And today, 10 years later (with what all that means), Oliverio and I continue to think the same things about love, women, sex, death. Let’s see … The result was this continuation of the adventures of this “archetypal male” of our culture. El Lado Oscuro de Corazón II is the same bet. This time we add a “2” because it is a double bet. As Oliver states, his triumph is a game of cards that wins over death.
For life, carajo!
