Chick Flick Alert! "Den skaldede frisÝr" (English captions) is a Danish film about a hairdresser who has been fighting breast cancer. After a partial mastectomy and chemo, she gets the all-clear, but comes home only to discover her husband having a fling with a co-worker. Problem is, next week they are flying from Denmark to Italy for their daughter's wedding. Of course Dean Martin's "That's Amore" underscores the opening credits.

Writer Suzanne Bier ("After the Wedding" - terrific by the way!) directed this award-winning romance that features:
* Trine Dyrholm ("The Royal Affair") is Ida, the bald hairdresser (nice wig though) who has to confront one serious upset after another. She's the mother of the bride.
* Pierce Brosnan ("The Ghost Writer") is Philip, a highly successful international trader of fresh fruits and vegetables. It's his Italian villa where the wedding party convenes. He's the widowed father of the groom.
* Sebastian Jessen ("Almost Perfect") is Patrick, the groom...but he's starting to wonder....
* Molly Blixt Egelind ("Rebounce") is Astrid, the bride. The groom's wondering is making her start to wonder...
* Paprika Steen ("Keep the Lights On") is Benedikte, the worst sister-in-law EVER!

Things get off to a bad start when the mother of the bride backs her car into the father of the groom's car at the airport in Copenhagen. Then they are on the same flight but HER luggage gets lost. Finally, her wandering husband brings along his new sweetheart to Italy because she missed her flight back to Denmark. (She introduces herself as his "fiancée.")

I'll bet you have it all figured out, don't you? Well, you don't. I love it when things become unpredictable, and they do!

and it's a 3/12 star charmer. Won't repeat details, thanks to the Jay B Lane review. Just want to add that the scenery (Sorrento, Italy) is gorgeous! Saw it on a cold, gloomy day in June, and it was a day brightener. The mix of Danish and English languages seemed very natural to me. The actors stirred the pot of emotions nicely, and oh, that sister-in-law! The movie had lots of little "moments," and the kinds of relationship messes that humans tend to create for themselves. Glad I went to Sorrento with Pierce and the gang.

Pierce Brosnan plays a wealthy but grouchy British businessman whose son is getting married in Italy. When he first meets the bride's Danish mother, they instantly loathe each other, but the magic of Sorrento changes all that.

I love this movie! It is bilingual (Danish/English) and everyone (except Brosnan) switches between the two, often during a single conversation. Even the credits switch languages. The subtitles are fine, though, and Danish is a beautiful language.

Brosnan and costar Trine Dyrholm are wonderful together, playing heartbroken middle-agers who still want to be loved. There is a strong supporting Danish cast with well-developed characters and interesting story lines for all of them.

The story is more romance than comedy with lots of people falling in and out of love. It's heartwarming and engrossing and the Italian Riviera location is incredibly picturesque. Highly recommended.

I saw this movie at a screening and was able to speak with Pierce and Trine. It is a delightful story with one of the bravest performances I have ever witnessed from Trine Dyrholm. Yes, it's quiet and simple but it's ever so honest and beautiful. I have deep affection for both Denmark and Italy so this was a love letter for me, personally.

FYI: Trine shaved her head for this so the scenes of her hair regrowth would be real. There is an even braver choice she made in this film. Trine is truly wonderful and I will be looking for any work that she does in the future. The rest of the cast was spot on and that adds up to brilliant direction by Susanne Bier.

I am so thrilled to have found the DVD for sale.

Format: DVD
Susanne Bier (In a Better World, Things We Lost in the Fire, After the Wedding, Brothers) has come up with another touching and very real exploration of human feelings with LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED co-written with Anders Thomas Jensen. In a story that could have become Hallmarky, Bier is able to score with just the right amount of human need, sentiment and reality testing that makes this little film win.

In Denmark, a hairdresser - very significant occupation we'll find - named Ida (Trine Dyrholm) has just finished post mastectomy carcinoma treatments yet when she goes home to share the news with her husband Leif (Kim Bodnia) en flagrante with a young chick form work and leaves her loutish husband to his life choices. Also living in Denmark is wealthy Englishman Phillip, a middle aged, estranged man still angry at the world for the loss of his wife, leaving him to raise his Patrick (Sebastian Jessen)? Patrick plans to marry Astrid (Molly Blixt Egelind) who happens to be the daughter of Ida. The fates of these two souls are about to intertwine as they embark for a trip to Italy to attend the wedding of Patrick and Astrid, to be staged in Philip's villa with the aid of his sister-in-law Benedikte (Paprike Steen) who has always had eyes for Philip, a thwarted romantic delusion. All eyes are on the wedding Patrick has meticulously planned but eventually takes a turn when Patrick finally admits his same sex feelings, and his thawing father falls in love with the emotionally fragile but captivating Ida. It's a story about seeking love and having the courage to change your life - even when you think it's too late.

So many threads to this story but Susanne Bier has tied them together nicely - not providing a Hollywood ending but leaving us with thoughts about how circumstances can alter the way we have been unsuccessfully viewing life. Grady Harp, December 13
