Probably the first thing you need to know about Love is All You Need is that it doesn’t include any Beatles songs on its soundtrack. It’s original title is Den skaldede frisør, which seems to roughly translate to “The Bald Hairdresser,” and Love is All You Need is the arbitrary title it got stuck with in English-speaking markets. It is the kind of movie that unashamedly includes multiple uses of the song ‘That’s Amore’ though, so you can probably guess what sort of demographic it’s aiming to hit. Love is All You Need, in addition to being the new film from co-writer/director Susanne Bier (In a Better World, Things We Lost in the Fire), is a relationship drama about a guy (Sebastien Jessen) and a girl (Molly Blixt Egelind) getting married at a rustic house situated in a lemon grove on the coast of Italy. It’s one of those travelogue movies that’s just as much about showing off an exotic location as it is about digging into all of the neuroses and relationship dramas of the eccentric family members who show up for the wedding.

Love is all you need

Here’s the deal. Love is All You Need looks a bit too easy, a bit too happy and a bit too formulaic, but Susanne Bier is not your typical director.

Not that it’ll be Brothers or anything, but there’s almost no chance that it’ll be average. Although, I could have done without the shot of Brosnan on an Italian balcony (not a euphemism) in his black boxer briefs. But who knows. Maybe the guy has still got it. He was Bond after all. Check out the trailer for yourself and duck when the glass of champagne gets thrown in your face:
