Love is All You Need/ “Den skaldede frisør” (Susanne Bier, Denmark, 2012)

Love is All You Need is a romantic comedy, one aimed a middle-aged audience which it doesn’t condescend to. It’s interesting because it is a European film, because it’s directed by Susanne Bier and because it’s got wonderful actors one recognises from Danish television and Italian gangster films, actors one loves  but can’t quite yet name, actors who can still pass as real people.  Pierce Brosnan is the film’s real object of desire, and  few 60 year-olds can be as attractive and appealing as Brosnan seen through the haze of so many longing females gazes in front and behind the camera. It’s out now but won’t be for long.

    I was really struck by the trailer for this. I found the woman was really compelling and watchable, and I am not really sure that Pierce Brosnan can equal her. Could be that I’m just not that much of a fan, though…

    I think you’re referring to Trine Dyrholm who is wonderful here. The film is about her character but he’s the object of desire.
