DVD REVIEW: Love is all you Need
4:28pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in Entertainments
DANISH hairdresser Ida (Trine Dyrholm) has undergone chemotherapy as part of her breast cancer treatment.
She returns home from a check-up to find her oafish husband Leif (Kim Bodnia) in flagrante delicto with blonde accountant Tilde (Christiane Schaumburg- Muller).
It’s a devastating blow and Ida leaves him to catch a flight to Sorrento, where their daughter Astrid (Molly Blixt Egelind) is due to marry her handsome fiancé Patrick (Sebastian Jessen).
In the airport car park, Ida backs into a car being driven by English widower Philip (Pierce Brosnan), who has thrown himself into his work following the death of his wife. It transpires that Philip is Patrick’s father and is also heading to the ceremony.
Love Is All You Need is a life-affirming comedy set on the Sorrentine Peninsula. Oscar-winning director Susanne Bier dons her sunglasses for this confection about two souls offered another chance at happiness.
The script, written by Anders Thomas Jensen, lacks the subtleties and layers of their earlier collaborations: Brothers, After The Wedding and In A Better World.
Dialogue moves fluidly between Danish and English, galvanised by sparkling screen chemistry between Brosnan and Dyrholm.
