In recent times the film industry is always on the lookout to remind us that love can come at any age, not just for Romeo and Juliet aged star-crossed lovers but for everyone. "Love Is All You Need " plays the same fiddle. Starring a heavier and certainly anti-James Bond man-wench is Pierce Brosnan who leaves Copenhagen to attend his son’s wedding in Italy, but not before he gets literally crashed into by hairdresser Ida, played by a charming Trine Dyrholm. She happens to also be heading to Italy, but for her daughter’s wedding. It’s a serendipitous coincidence for the both of them that then allows for this little story to churn along.

Director gently and lovingly by Oscar winning Susanne Bier known for her films "Brothers," "After the wedding" and "In a better world" (for which she won the Academy Award).

to remind us that love can come at any age...

The special features on the disc include commentary with the actor Pierce Brosnan and director Susanne Bier, Cast Interviews from the Venice Film Festival and a behind-the-scenes segment with actor Trine Dyrholm.

The film, corny and at times silly, does eventually polish to a shiny moment where love prevails. Even when love has lied, near killed and bored you to death, it manages to glisten just enough for you to believe in it.
