Love Is All You Need

Love Is All You Need is a 2012 Danish romantic comedy film about the simple yet profound pains and joys of moving on - and forward - with your life.

Ida is a Danish hairdresser, recuperating from a long bout of illness, who’s just been left by her husband for a younger woman, Tilde. The fates of these two bruised souls are about to intertwine, as they embark for a trip to Italy to attend the wedding of Patrick and Astrid, Philip’s son and Ida’s daughter.

Directed by: Susanne Bier (Brothers, In a Better World, upcoming Serena)

    Another good choice by Shawna. I enjoyed the movie and the discussion. I can't add anything to John's take on the movie.

    I liked the movie. A lot. Some aspects I wasn’t so fond of: the husband ’s infidelity was important, but he was too broadly drawn. The girlfriend at the wedding seemed gratuitous.
    I was enthralled by and moved by what I feel is the emotional heart of the film: the older couple—intensely human because deeply bruised by life and loss—learns to open their hearts and lives to one another while their children—so inexperienced and idealistic—learn very painfully that they cannot have with one another what their parents are learning to have. We hope the children will find what their parents have found.
    So, what I remember and value is the privilege of watching such consummate actors as their lined, imperfect faces subtly portray flawed individuals as they experience the vulnerability, courage, fears, and joys of discovering and achieving who they can be and what they can have.
    It’s deeply life affirming for a movie (or any art) to show the human heart.
    I’m with Jean: great discussion.

    Enjoyed the film in spite of its flaws and especially enjoyed the discussion afterwards at Margaret's.

    I enjoyed the film. While it was very predictable in spots, the acting was superb and I connected with the characters and their plight.

    Oh dear, I wasn't that taken with it. Thought it was a little trite (and could have used more adept editing). Beautiful visually, and other good things. Of course, I completely respect others' positive reactions.

    I'd love to see this movie with this group. However, I went to see it last week with my daughter, because I thought some of the subject matter of of the film was a little too close for me--with my loved one's struggle last year with terminal cancer. However, I think you will all enjoy it, though there are some quite unbelievable/unrealistic character portrayals in the film that stole some of the "heart" of the film away for me.
