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.
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.
