Overstuffed Love Is All You Need an unsatisfying, predictable rom-com from Susanne Bier

Caroline McKenzie
Slant Magazine

At times it seems as if Susanne Bier set out to create some kind of absurdist comedy, but lost her nerve somewhere along the way.

We Got This Covered

While Love is All You Need is better than most films of its type, it's still unable to overcome the numerous cliches that come attached to such a story.

At the heart of this formulaic bore is the potential for a far more interesting story.

Susanne Bier's Love Is All You Need is so relentlessly unremarkable it might sit as the precise median on a chart of all films ever released.

Maybe some of its ambition got lost in translation?

Las Vegas Weekly

Pitched somewhere between a frothy Hollywood romantic comedy and a more sophisticated European family drama, Susanne Bier's Love Is All You Need succeeds as neither.

Willfully tries to market itself as delightful and heartwarming, but ends up being neither.

Two troubled souls struggle with obstreperous relatives and a bundle of unresolved life issues apparently snatched from the nearest airport bookstore.

What's not to like? Unfortunately, quite a lot.

All you need is a better movie.

May 16, 2013

While it's always commendable when filmmakers attempt to broach new territory, this disappointingly slight rom-com does not live up to director Susanne Bier and writer Anders Thomas Jensen's more serious work.

Has nothing to do with The Beatles' 'All You Need Is Love.' Based on the movie's low quantity of romance, it may as well be called The Walrus I Am.

Despite the gorgeous sights and rollicking sounds of sunny Italy, a Scandinavian heaviness hangs over the film, with a screenplay by Ms. Bier's frequent collaborator Anders Thomas Jensen, based on a story they developed.

The sole saving grace of this treacly middlebrow dross is the naturally sweet chemistry between Brosnan and Dyrholm.

I lost count of how many times "That's Amore" turned up on the soundtrack, and the comic situations are so stale that the whole thing plays like a Scandinavian Tyler Perry movie.

Lead actress Trine Dyrholm is the best thing about this pat, conventional comedy-drama of romantic reassurance for middle-aged moviegoers and their mothers.

As movies have taught us before (and no doubt will again), a little Mediterranean sunshine and a few plucks of soundtrack mandolin go a long way toward healing heartache.

This bittersweet, multilingual romantic comedy is just as fluffy and forgettable as its title suggests.

Observer [UK]

The characters are familiar social types, none too well conceived, and there is an almost painful lack of subtlety in the writing and performances, possibly because most of the script is in English.
