    Love Is All You Need

    ★★★½

    Trine Dyrholm plays a hairdresser recovering from cancer who goes to her daughter's wedding in Italy shortly after finding out her husband is having an affair with his colleague. Pierce Brosnan plays the groom's father. You can guess what happens.

    According to IMDB, the original Danish title of the film was "The Bald Hairdresser". Which is nothing if not accurate I guess.

  • After the Wedding

    After the Wedding

    ★★★½

    Solid, low-key drama about family loyalty and the like. Gets an extra half mark because all drama is better when delivered in a Scandinavian language.

    Bloodsport

    ★★★★

    Depending on which of the two types of martial arts movie plot you prefer (fighting your way through a tournament to avenge the death/injury of your friend/relative or learning a new martial arts technique from an old master to avenge the death/injury of your friend/relative) then either this or Kickboxer is Van Damme's best film. Although he should have won two best actor Oscars for Double Impact, obviously.

    Watched this while recovering from kidney surgery. Frankly, the breaks I took to piss blood were more enjoyable.
