LOTS OF LOVE STORIES!
What a beautiful film! It gives me such pleasure to report on a film which has some terribly deft humor along with a moving story of love- actually, a number of stories concerned with that subject- but one warmer than the other ones.
BROSNAN AND DYRHOLM MAKE A GREAT PAIR!
The stellar characters are Pierce Brosnan and the lovely actress,Trine Dyrholm. The story begins in Copenhagen, Denmark but centers on marriage scheduled between Brosnan’s son and the daughter of Trine Dyrholm-in an Italian villa owned– but scarcely occupied– by Brosnan.
BOTH COMEDY AND LOVE BOUTS!
It starts off as a comedy of coincidences between these two strangers– Brosnan and Dyrholm- with a parking garage car collision, and proceeds onwards with their relationship and ancillary bouts of affection as well as disaffection among wedding party participants.Everything here is pitched with heartening music and scenes that breathe fresh life into anyone seeing it. (After the film: folks were smiling.)
I was elated with how well Brosnan plays his role, which in the hands of a lesser actor could not have lifted this film up to the warm heights it well achieved. And Dyrholm portrays a wronged woman who is charming as well as good and pure. To see these two actors starting out in deadly combat with each other-yet in each of their minds a kind of gradually forming affection, stunned however by past experiences that won’t leave them alone-nevertheless almost fated to finally admit that love is all they need–is brilliant movie magic. I marvelled at how all of it fell into place.
DELIGHT IN THE DIVERSITY!
LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED proves that almost anything works as long as the joy of film entertainment combines with some passion towards love. Is there something about this film that melds foreign countries with stunning scenery and different “languaged” actors that creates a mood in folks that harvests delight? It certainly did that for me.
THE PLOT WORKS, REGARDLESS!
The plot has some crazy twists and turns that surprised me; and the plot, itself, was not the best laid; and yet the overall energy, produced, gave me some sense of love which was quite refreshing and meaningful as well.
THIS FILM HAS MY BACK!
LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED needs you, too. My recommendation comes with the movie rank of an EIGHT with a bonus PLUS.
Happy Movie Going!
