Generally known for her tough, wrenching dramas, it looks like Susanne Bier has taken a page out of the Woody Allen playbook (though without the name brand, ensemble cast) for her upcoming effort "Love Is All You Need." Featuring an exotic location, a potpourri of languages, and a mix of romance and drama, the film looks like it's poised to be a breezy little number.

Love Is All You Need Pierce Brosnan

Generally known for her tough, wrenching dramas, it looks like Susanne Bier has taken a page out of the Woody Allen playbook (though without the name brand, ensemble cast) for her upcoming effort "Love Is All You Need." Featuring an exotic location, a potpourri of languages, and a mix of romance and drama, the film looks like it's poised to be a breezy little number.

Pierce Brosnan stars in the film that centers on a young couple, Astrid and Patrick, who are getting married in Sorrento in southern Italy. Their two families come together, bringing their issues with them: there's Astrid's mother Ida, a hairdresser suffering from cancer who has just been left by her husband of 25 years, Leif. Leif shows up with Thilde, his new blonde girlfriend. And there's also Astrid's brother Kenneth, who has an explosive temper. Meanwhile, there's Patrick's father, Philip (Brosnan), who hasn't quite gotten over his wife's tragic death. Stir it all up, and you have "Love Is All You Need."

As we said, it looks fairly light, perhaps slight, but not without its charms. And visually, it looks pretty damn stunning, with cinematography being handled by Morten Søborg, a regular collaborator of Bier's, who has also worked on Nicolas Winding Refn's "Valhalla Rising," "Bleeder" and the "Pusher" trilogy.

"Love Is All You Need" opens in Denmark on September 6th and we'd guess that given the Italian setting, and the fact that it's directed by fest-fave Susanne Bier, a Venice premiere seems like a no-brainer. Sony Pictures Classics have the U.S. rights for the movie, but considering we already have "To Rome With Love" this summer, and that the general feel of Bier's film is not of awards-season bait, we'd reckon it will be 2013 before it crosses the pond (though perhaps it will make a pit stop on the fall festival circuit in a few months).

Anyway, watch the trailer below -- no subtitles, but there's enough from Brosnan and from the situations that you should be able to pretty easily figure out what's going on.
