    VIFF Review: Overstuffed 'Love Is All You Need' An Unsatisfying, Predictable Rom-Com From Susanne Bier

    What’s up with those crazy Danish filmmakers and their compulsion to pile it on? The latest from Oscar-winning filmmaker Susanne Bier (“In A Better World”) is like watching a long game of Jenga. As every sub plot, reveal and character… err, caricature that is, gets stacked o...

    5 New Photos From Susanne Bier's 'Love Is All You Need' Starring Pierce Brosnan

    Danish director Susanne Bier, who was behind the much acclaimed, but decidedly tough likes of "Brothers," "After the Wedding" and Hollywood debut "Things We Lost In the Fire," is not exactly the obvious choice for a romantic comedy. Particularly given that she just won the Foreign Language Oscar a c...

    TIFF Capsule Review: 'Love Is All You Need'

    Danish director Susanne Bier's follow-up to her Oscar-winning "In a Better World" is a welcome change from the overdone weightiness of her last few films in favor of a conventionally heartwarming romance about aging loners finding a catharsis in companionship. Trine Dyrholm plays Ida, a hairdresser and cancer survivor whose solemn life is complicated when she comes home for a doctor's visit to find her husband fooling around with a woman half her age. The timing couldn't be worse, since Ida's young daughter plans to get married soon at an orange grove in Italy. At the height of her frustration, Ida literally slams...

    The Olympics are here, and aside from the expensive, overblown spectacle, there are sports happening and advertising too. Lots of it. And some of it, with some directors you might have heard of.

    Watch: International Trailer For Susanne Bier's 'Love Is All You Need' Starring Pierce Brosnan

    Generally known for her tough, wrenching dramas, it looks like Susanne Bier has taken a page out of the Woody Allen playbook (though without the name brand, ensemble cast) for her upcoming effort "Love Is All You Need." Featuring an exotic location, a potpourri of languages, and a mix...

    The 5 Worst Movie Star Performances In Musicals

    After a few of years since the last major effort (the ill-fated "Nine"), the live-action movie musical is back again, with two starry efforts due this year about as far away from each other as you can get. This Christmas will see the terribly-serious looking "Les Miserables" hit theaters, with a sta...

    Elijah Wood Will Play 'Grand Piano' & Pierce Brosnan Joins 'The Coup' With Owen Wilson

    Review: 'I Don't Know How She Does It' Is A Pained, Unfunny, Politically Questionable Bore

    One of the "charmingly neurotic" tics of the main character of "I Don't Know How She Does It," played brittlely and with affected strain by Sarah Jessica Parker, is making to-do lists. Since the year is 2011 and editing software has come a long way, we see her visualize the list as the prepares for sleep – everything from arranging her daughter's play date to doing some Kegel exercises (yes, seriously) – with words and small images appearing tattooed on the ceiling of her bohemian chic Boston apartment (accompanied by a never-ending stream of voice-over narration).
