What a disappointment. A perfect wedding which turns to be not perfect, love triangles, a middle aged hair dresser (Paprika Sten) who after chemotherapy feels ugly but for some inexplicable reason receives courtship from mister Gorgeous (Pierce Brosnan). The depiction of Italy could not be more stereotyped (there is a mandolin trilling throughout the film). I went to see it because of Susanne Bier's name, but not only did it turn out to be not my kind of film, but the script is in fact objectively boring with few surprises or suspense. Anybody can guess the rest of the plot after some time. In spite of a few funny lines and embarrassing scenes, I bored myself to death, especially towards the end of the film. Now I am supposed to write at least 10 lines but I don't know what to do with the rest of the space! My summary: A good film for my granny, maybe. Everyone else - use your time for something else.
