It’s All About Love

Director: Thomas Vinterberg
Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Claire Danes, Dounglas Henshall, Sean Penn, Mark Strong

The good news is that Thomas Vinterberg’s first film in English is not a formulaic Hollywood product. The bad news is that it’s incomprehensible and self-important rubbish. The story is set in 2021 where our hero is about to divorce his celebrity wife but can’t escape the feeling that she is hiding something. All the while the entire world seems to be off kilter. The story is over-ambitious and all over the place, acting is wooden and the dialogue is clunky and exposition-heavy. Better luck next time, Thomas.
