A cancer patient rethinks her marriage in Copenhagen and develops unanticipated feelings for the father of her daughter’s fiancée (Brosnan). Relocated to an idyllic setting in Italy for the wedding, and with romance – but also family drama – in the air, they succumb to the zesty enchantment of the lemon grove in Sorrento as all else around them turns to disaster. Susanne Bier handles the switch between English and Danish awkwardly in this predictable film with few humorous moments. Moments of Mamma Mia déjá vu are the least of this movie’s problems.
