A film about heightened loneliness and pain, but with bits of hope that ebbs and flows

Mike Leigh, at it again. This film takes its time and Manville makes the most of that time. Her trajectory works best as we see her desperation and her loneliness and sadness permeate and make her seem more unstable with each passing season. Staunton in her brief cameo shows all in what she doesn't say. Stern, sad, and depressed about a life that does not seem to change let alone get any better. Her stare is a layered soul that has an unfair life and just wants to get through unnoticed. A great film about heightened loneliness and pain with quite a bit of hope that ebbs and flows in and out of character's lives.

Brilliant

This is a grown up movie - it is deep and complex, very funny in places and tragic. I loved it, it is up with the best of Mike Leigh's movies.

brilliant dialogue driven human drama.

A married couple who have managed to remain blissfully happy into their autumn years, are surrounded over the course of the four seasons of one average year by friends, colleagues, and family who all seem to suffer some degree of unhappiness. i knew the kind of movie it will turn out. i loved the main idea of just an Another Year of this happy couple that covers the 4 seasons showing their friends and colleagues and their problems. Mike Leigh and his movies are one of their kinds. he is a brilliant director. this movie for some or many viewers will be painfully slow. its a simple dialogue driven movie, with just talking and long shots of talking. Lesley Manville's performance just shocked me, man she is brilliant. Jim Broadbent and Ruth Sheen and other supporting actors were good too. but Lesley steals the show. amazing superb performance. Screenplay is very intelligently written. story is good. a good film overall. this movie is very sad, depressing and captures true human feelings. must watch.
