  1. Surely, Vinterberg was high on some inert gas when he embarked on it.

    The experiment didn't work. The English-language production is a jumble of poorly delineated notions about love, celebrity, the look of romantic movies, and the sound of American-style dialogue - and it's been sitting on the shelf for over a year.

    The director doesn't display the spirit of a natural entertainer; while intellectual notions abound, he never grabs the audience by the hand to pull them into the tale emotionally.
  4. A cringing romance that Mr. Vinterberg tries and fails to spin into a political allegory.

    There are so many things wrong with Thomas Vinterberg’s It’s All about Love that if I wrote them down, this would be a five page review that would sound like a spiteful rant.
  6. 10
    Vinterberg's execution is overstuffed, unoriginal and often downright incomprehensible. And what's Sean Penn doing dangling off airplanes -- pontificating, as usual, from a great height?

    Sorry, I wanted to like this because of the talent involved but it turned out to be a boring mess. Scenes plod on too long with no real pointSorry, I wanted to like this because of the talent involved but it turned out to be a boring mess. Scenes plod on too long with no real point and the whole thing ultimately feels empty. It tries to come across as deep but it's really just incomprehensible. Full Review »

    I enjoyed this movie because it's haunting and mysterious from the start. The discovery of the clones without love is enlightening. I enjoyed this movie because it's haunting and mysterious from the start. The discovery of the clones without love is enlightening. It's all about love indeed. And when love disappears, the world is going to be turned upside down. You must see it because it sets you in a very special mood. Peace and love! Full Review »

    This was a total waste of time. The only reason why it even gets four is beacause of the gorgeous Claire Danes appears in four roles.
