This dutch romantic comedy has been winning raves and considering director Susanne Bier (In A Better World, Open Hearts) is generally in heavy territory this is a new direction from the celebrated film maker.
Synopsis: As a young couple, Astrid and Patrick get married in Sorrento in southern Italy, and their two families come together, bringing their issues with them. There’s Astrid’s mother Ida, a hairdresser suffering from cancer who has just been left by her husband of 25 years, Leif. Leif shows up with Thilde, his new blonde girlfriend. And there’s also Astrid’s brother Kenneth, who has an explosive temper. Meanwhile, there’s Patrick’s father, Philip (Brosnan), who hasn’t quite gotten over his wife’s tragic death and comes off as a bit of a crank. Will he find love? Can these locations get any more gorgeous? – Kevin Jagernauth
