Love is all you need

Ms. Bier and Anders Thomas Jensen, her scriptwriter, have clearly enjoyed working within a conventional format, while wittily and poignantly subverting expectations, to create a real gem of bittersweet comedy.

Synopsis

Philip (Brosnan), an Englishman living in Denmark, is a lonely, middle-aged widower and estranged single father. Ida (Dyrholm) is a Danish hairdresser, recuperating from a long bout of illness, who?s just been left by her husband for a younger woman, Tilde. The fates of these two bruised souls are about to intertwine, as they embark for a trip to Italy to attend the wedding of Patrick and Astrid, Philip?s son and Ida?s daughter. It is a film about the simple yet profound pains and joys of moving on - and forward - with your life.
