Pierce Brosnan Love Is All You Need

Love Is All You Need,” the light rom-com from Susanne Bier (“In A Better World”), comes out late in the spring and Sony Picture Classics has just released a new, domestic theatrical trailer online for all of us to see. Bier had developed quite the reputation over the years for sobering dramas such as “Open Hearts” and “After the Wedding,” but here she has taken a much lighter detour, giving us a beautiful look of Southern Italy along the way.

The film stars Pierce Brosnan and Danish actress Trine Dyrholm. Dyrholm plays Ida, a hairdresser who successfully finishes her treatment for breast cancer, then comes home to find her husband’s cheating on her. In the meantime, Ida’s daughter is about to get married in Southern Italy. She winds up bumping into the groom’s father, Philip, (Brosnan) along the way, a man who’s just gotten over the tragic death of his wife. Will Philip and Ida ever find love again? In this beautiful Italian location? Most certainly!

Bier’s film was shown at a number of different festivals last fall, most notably in Venice and Toronto. We weren’t very impressed with the film when we caught it in Vancouver, feeling that Bier "throws as much as she can against the narrative wall [but] ends up diminishing the stakes, even if Brosnan is rather good in a role perfectly suited for his icy charm."  You will be able to see for yourself when “Love Is All You Need” comes out on May 3rd.
