I didn't see the first in this series, cut considering the earlier posting, perhaps it is best to see the Dark Side of the Heart (2) first if comparison with the other could interfere with enjoyment. IMO this movie stands well on it's own. The questions about life and love link the plot together beautifully. Who hasn't had relationships that felt like that? I liked the way suspense was built by keeping the scenes and characters somewhat out of sync. The character metaphors were great. I laughed. I cried. I could relate.
There is still one character I couldn't figure out. The lady that introduces him to the motorcycle man. I have a few ideas about her, but still I'm not sure.
