    Brosnan and Dyrholm are irresistible, communicating volumes with mere glances as well as sharp dialogue. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    What's remarkable, though, is how Ms. Bier's film, in Danish and English, finds beauty in its quiet moments, which are many and close between. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Brosnan is good, and he and Dyrholm erase any and all signs of contrivance in the plot, the script. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    It’s a mystery as to how so much talent combined to create such a cynically superficial product. show more

    While virtually everything that happens in this grown-up rom-com can be seen coming a mile off, Danish director Susanne Bier’s assured touch and warm regard for her characters make the film both pleasurable and satisfying. show more

    Irresistibly entertaining and beautiful to look at it, the film is pleasant at worst, and – at best – wisely defies its slapped-on American title, a warm reminder that love isn’t a solution so much as it’s a brilliant way of embracing life’s problems. show more

    Love Is All You Need works despite its occasional preposterous developments. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Love Is All You Need is entirely predictable, and that’s OK in a film as lovingly made, well acted and enjoyable as this. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    As the title more than hints, Love Is All You Need is no stranger to formulaic clichés, but it’s still a Bier film. There’s a sprinkling of vinegar in the treacle, a bit of ballast in fancy’s lightweight flight, and, of course, the triumph of optimism that can seem unearned in her dramas is made to measure in a comedy. show more

    Joe Williams St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    While the underrated Brosnan is effective as the cold-hearted produce mogul, the character starts as such a sourpuss that after he softens in the Sorrento lemon groves, it’s still hard to root for his inevitable hookup with Ida. show more

    WOW, for a subtitled foreign movie, it was really good. Story had a lot of twists & turns, but loved the scenery and the way it all turns out. You make mistakes in life & then somehow you find just the right person that helps you see how to set it right

    No special effects. No computer generated glitz. Just a good, solid, well acted, heart warming story. See it.

    A beautiful movie, both visually and emotionally. Brosnan at top of his game. Lovely scenery, photography, acting, writing, and twists and turns. We need more of these instead of the never-ending crap Hollywood is spoonfeeding the lowest rung of movie goers with all their computer generated scenes that have replaced true story telling like this film does.

    Absolutely fantastic. A cross between \"My Big Fat Greek Wedding\" and Andrew Lloyd Webber\'s musical \"Aspects of Love\". Delightful, plot twisting, heart warming.
