Re: Love is All you Need

I have done this now Jo. Don't know if you want to delete this one now?

 

Sorry for this, I am getting used to the new lay out (slowly)!

Hi Rattles,

 

Sorry you haven't been able to find chit chat - it's right at the bottom if you scroll further down the page to the forum 'Talk to People like me'.  Here's the link.   http://forum.breastcancercare.org.uk/t5/Chat-and-games/bd-p/4409

Love is All you Need

I wanted to post about a film I watched last night. I am sure there was a section in the old forum for chit-chat and fun things but I didn't know where to find it in the new forum, so sorry if this is not the right place to post!

 

I had never come across a film where the main character had breast cancer and this one was funny and uplifting without being too sentimental. Pierce Brosnan plays the male love interest. It is partly set in Italy so lush settings and sunshine are a wonderful contrast to the grey that is my current view.

 

Essentially it is the story of Ida, who finishes her chemotherapy treatment and then comes home to find her husband up to no-good (this is all on the cover, so not a spoiler and don't let this put you off) just before they go to their daughter's wedding in Italy.

 

Though the film starts off in Danish, ( I usually can't read subtitles!) as once the plot gets going , the dialogue is in English.

 

There were a few things I didn't like about it but on the whole I just thought it was really great to see a 'mainstream' film tackle this issue. I am sure Pierce Brosnan's first wife (and daughter) died of ovarian cancer so I  it can't have been an easy thing for him to have been in.

 

Be interested to know what others thinks.
