A Danish woman, Ida (Trine Dyrholm), who has just finished her cancer treatments, walks in on her suffering husband in bed with his young co-worker. She travels alone to their daughter's wedding, which is to take place in Italy, but meets the father of the groom, Philip (Pierce Brosnan), and immediately makes a bad first impression. At the seaside villa where Philip once lived with his wife, conflicts arise not least between the soon-to-be newlyweds. But first impressions fade, and Ida may find her chance for another life.

I think this movie has gotten a lot of misjudged reviews in my opinion. Maybe it's because I'm a Dane, maybe not.
This movie is a romantic comedy, acted very real with all those little problems (without getting too dramatic and fake) in all our lives. The characters acts so real, it's amazing. It too is funny in a ironic way... And that i love too. (But i guess that's because it's very danish, and the humor go from country to country).
The movie is not like an Oscar film, or anything like that. But it's a phenomenal film, that are for you who are in the mood for a "feeling good" movie or something like that. A very sweet realistic story.
The movie is about a hairdresser, who have had breast cancer. When she gets home from a appointment at the hospital for a check-up, she finds her husband in bed with a woman from work. The live in the suburbs to Copenhagen (classical little house etc. etc.). Her husband storms out after she caught him, blaming her because of her cancer - saying how hard it's been on him. The following day, she has to fly to Italy for her daughters wedding. But it all end up going differently than expected, and turn everybody lives up and down!
It's such a lovely movie with perspective on all life's paths, and challenges.
