A Heart For Two.

In Un Corazon Para Dos (aka "A Heart For Two"), a brillo mulleted guy named Bernardo (Pedro Fernandez) is secretly in love with his pretty female friend Valeria (Daniela Leites). Every morning, Bernardo leaves love letters and little flowers on the gates of Valeria's home. Valeria loves these letters; but she believes they are from her boyfriend. Even though Bernardo has no chance at getting with Valeria, he's still very faithful to her and will do just about anything for her. When Bernardo discovers his head injuries that he received from an automobile accident are getting worse and there is no treatment for them, he decides to end his life soon by giving his strong healthy heart to Valeria. Valeria is in need of a heart transplant due to her heart condition. His sacrifice is to keep the girl he loves alive and to prove his love for her as well!

So many heavy emotions in Un Corazon Para Dos! Throughout the movie, there are sad moments involving Bernardo struggling to know what to do with himself now that he knows for sure that his condition will worsen. Same goes with Valeria; it saddens her to know that someone has to die for her to live a normal healthy life. The scenes where Bernardo leaves letters & flowers at the gates of Valeria's home = Heartbreaking! The fact that he can't have her yet still loves her is just sad! I feel for Bernardo, me and him continue to care for someone that we can't have. Heartbreaking isn't it!?

My favorite scenes of the movie are of course the cheesy parts of the movie. There are a few cheesy scenes where we see Bernardo's grandfather (played by Mario Almada) flirting with a chubby woman. The fact that we see Mario Almada lusting after a chubby woman is just hilarious. Then there's a cheesy as fuck montage scene where we see Bernardo and Valeria awkwardly hanging out in front of a water fountain, then we see Bernardo riding a horse, and then we get a glimpse of Bernardo writing a last letter to Valeria (Www Aaaahhh!). All that happens while Pedro Fernandez's cheesy hit No Puedo Acostumbrarme plays. That song is so damn cheesy that it more than likely still made his female fans wet themselves. Also, the little guitar solo in the song is epic as fuck. Seriously.

Un Corazon Para Dos is a typical melodrama/romance movie, but worth a watch every once in a while. After all the weirdness & violence; mellow down with this movie and cry a little. Maybe. 6/10.
