The film is a really nice middle aged romance. Most of it is set in sunny Italy, other parts in Denmark. It's a co-production from various European countries, the director and the majority of the cast are Danish with the addition of Pierce Brosnan and a few other actors from English speaking countries. In keeping with the story involving nationals from different countries with their different languages, the film features dialogue in several languages, mainly Danish and English, with some Italian. Non-English dialogue is not dubbed but subtitled in English. Personally, I found the Danish dialogue charming (and I don't know any Danish myself) and didn't find the subtitles in any way irritating. This unusual audio/subtitle choice is clearly mentioned in the product description of the DVD and really shouldn't come as a surprise to buyers. If you want a film with all dialogue in English, stay away from this.

If you think you can live with a bit of Danish (or even better, enjoy it), this film has much to offer. While the Pierce Brosnan character is possibly a bit too handsome and rich and too good too ring quite true, there is much believable reality here too. It's not your average romcom, there is much in here about the various relationships within a family: mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, a stale marriage and dealing with the aftermath of breast cancer or the in laws after the death of a beloved partner. The acting is solid throughout, Brosnan is, of course, always watchable, but the real star here, at least for me, is Trine Dyrholm. She is sensational as Ida. Loved her and loved her character. The script is also very good, never allowing the story to become too saccharine. Lovely film for a quiet night in or a rainy afternoon.

A charming and quirky film with a very absorbing and interesting story line! There are various languages and very clear sub titles where necessary and that in no way intrudes on enjoyment of the film! My husband and I really enjoyed it and recommend it as a really good film with enough twists to keep your interest, not to mention the fabulous Italian scenery which is a joy to watch!

Very enjoyable rom-com in which the beautiful Italian town of Sorrento plays a great co-starring role. Great if you like all things Italian.

The movie was OK but, it is mostly Foreign Language (Danish). This made it much less of a pleasant watch than if it were in English!
