It's really a shame that any romantic drama gets put in the "soap" corner. You can put the cliché tag on almost everything obviously, but when it is shown with actors playing convincing characters as in this one, you should be able to differentiate. I haven't seen the "prequel" either, but the movie still makes sense and is nicely told. And as said, the actors are really good.
You should be aware, than different from US movies with a romantic touch (well most of them obviously, not all of them), you do get to see people having sex in this. Not explicit, but there are naked body parts that you will be exposed to. Why? Because it tries to keep it real and not give you just a romantic version of something that does not exist. Can you handle that?
