In this English and Danish-language romantic drama, recovering cancer survivor Ida (Trine Dyrholm) discovers her husband is cheating on her in the lead-up to their daughter Astrid's (Molly Blixt Egelind) Italian wedding.
Meanwhile, lonely widower Philip (Pierce Brosnan) is angry at the world for the death of his recently-deceased wife, and spares no-one from his rapier-like tongue as a consequence as he prepares to attend his son Sebastian's wedding in Italy to a girl he has never met.
However, when Ida and Philip meet by chance and travel to Italy together, a romance blooms between them that neither of them foresaw happening. As this promise of a new future grows up around the pair, they find that the young, soon-to-be-married couple they have come to support have troubles of their own.
What the critics say:
The middle-aged romance between the central characters is a lovely thing, and that makes up for everything.
- Mick LaSalle, Hearst Newspapers
Pierce Brosnan isn't the only reason to see Love is All You Need. He's merely the best reason to seek out Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier's entertaining if familiar romantic comedy.
- Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
There's something about a free spirit, even in a movie, that makes everything and everyone around her feel more vibrant.
- James Plath, Movie Metropolis
We've seen enough romantic comedy to know these two are destined to fall for each other, but Bier is that rare filmmaker who can make you wonder if there will actually be a happy ending.
