TIFF Programer's Note:  Danish director Susanne Bier made her international reputation with a series of stirring, powerful dramas, from Open Hearts to Brothers to the Academy Award®–winning In a Better World. But this remarkably accomplished filmmaker has always had a lighter side as well, as evidenced by her breakthrough film The One and Only, which initiated Bier's long collaboration with her frequent star Paprika Steen. Steen returns alongside Trine Dyrholm and Pierce Brosnan in Love Is All You Need, a sparkling romantic comedy that revives the spirit of Bier's earlier work.

Returning from her final, successful chemotherapy treatment, Ida (Trine Dyrholm) arrives home only to find her boorish husband Leif (Kim Bodnia) in a compromising position with a ditzy co-worker (Christiane Schaumburg-Müller). Stricken, she takes off to Sorrento alone to attend the wedding of her daughter Astrid (Molly Blixt Egelind) to Patrick (Sebastian Jessen) in a beautiful Italian villa, where the lemon groves and cypress trees form the perfect backdrop for a young couple who appear to be blissfully in love. Unexpectedly, Leif arrives with his new bimbo paramour in tow, leading Ida to give her husband a piece of her mind — and a face full of champagne. This display does little to impress Patrick's no-nonsense father Philip (Brosnan), a dashing but brooding widower who seems less than pleased with his life, his son, and his soon-to-be in-laws. When the young couple's future happiness is suddenly jeopardized, Ida and Philip are brought together to try to set things right — and find that life might have a second chance in store for them as well.

Bier's films have always been marked by their outstanding ensemble casts, and Love Is All You Need is no exception. Dyrholm invests Ida with a nervous energy (she's constantly adjusting her post-chemo wig) as well as warmth and humour. Brosnan delivers a delightful straight-man performance as the staid Phillip, while Steen is simply uproarious as the lustful sister-inlaw. Hilarious, touching and inspiring, Love is All You Need is a rousing toast to those who have the courage to transform their lives.

Love Is All You Need - UK Poster Ads The Telegraph: Love Is All You Need reunites Bier with two key collaborators from that Oscar-winner: Anders Thomas Jensen, her talented co-writer, and her marvellous lead actress, Trine Dyrholm. But the real draw here is Pierce Brosnan, astutely hand-picked by Bier for a role that fits him as flatteringly as his character’s impeccably tailored navy cotton suit.... Bier and her cast play the story with a total commitment to making every personal connection chime true, and the chemistry between Brosnan and Dyrholm crackles like a Roman candle. Robbie Collin 

TIME:  Danish writer-director Susanne Bier goes buoyant and bubbly in this story of love among the middle-agers....Even those chilly souls who resist second-time-around romances may surrender to a feel-good movie that, through sheer sunniness, accomplishes its salutary goal.Mary Corliss

Time Out: Brosnan, for instance, really steps up, delivering every nuance in what’s possibly the finest role he’s ever had, eclipsed only by Dyrholm’s heartfelt and heartrending portrayal of a woman who’s so long taken herself for granted she’s surprised to be loved 
Trevor Johnston

Hollywood Reporter:  Dyrholm... lends the film dignity and poignancy it might otherwise have lacked.  Brosnan balances Philip’s thorny exterior with a gradual openness to expressing and receiving affection. While the romance’s outcome is inevitable from the start and might have arrived at its conclusion a tad more swiftly, this principal thread is tender and moving. ... [This film] has sweetness, charm and a generosity of spirit that will find many takers. —  David Rooney

Screen Daily: In her first outing since her Oscar-winning In A Better World, Susanne Bier and her co-writer, Anders Thomas Jensen come up with a natural born winner, a romantic comedy that pulls out all the stops, uses all of the genre’s classic formulas.  Dan Fainaru

New York Times: Faith in other human beings lies at the heart of Susanne Bier’s life-enhancing out-of-competition “Love Is All You Need.” This kind of faith, Ida, enchantingly played by Trine Dyrholm, has in abundance.... Ms. Bier and Anders Thomas Jensen, her scriptwriter, have clearly enjoyed working within a conventional format, while wittily and poignantly subverting expectations, to create a real gem of bittersweet comedy. Roderick Conway Morris

The Times:
The most uplighting move experience yet this year. Wendy Ide

The Detroit News:
It is funny a good deal of the time, but in a complex, layered European brilliant way. [Bier] is known for her dramas, and she sure knows how to bring drama — or harsh reality — to comedy.  Tom Long

Flick Filosopher: 
Conventional dramedy then turns charming and wise, and becomes a delightful story about making the most of whatever life throws at you, and being strong enough to make the right choices even when they’re painful to make. I didn’t expect to be so very moved by the end. Maryann Johanson

Salon:
[W]hen Dyrholm and Brosnan are on screen, you won’t be able to look away ... watching these two consummate pros do their stuff as Philip and Ida move, offhandedly and incidentally, from casual acquaintance to profound connection to passion is very much worth the price of admission. Andrew O'Heirer
