Love Is All You Need, 2012 - ★★★½

There's lots of familiar elements here: Danes squabbling at a family gathering, a stunning mediterranean(?) setting, Pierce Brosnan and a title that isn't that far removed from a pop song. However this is quite different from Festen, Melancholia or Mama Mia and ends being a much nicer tale than the total devastation of Festen and fortunately Brosnan doesn't start singing. The central story is satisfying but I was left wanting more from the secondary characters.
