  • Just watch the magnificent Manville, in a raw and riveting award-class performance that exposes a grieving heart under siege. Her last scene is quietly devastating. So is this intimate miracle of a movie. show more

  • Mike Leigh's latest film preserves the mystery of why another marriage has flourished over decades. That's not the stated subject of Another Year, but it's at the center of this enjoyable though insistently schematic comedy. show more

  • It all comes down to affirmation vs. denial. Leigh chooses affirmation. And the result is life-affirming. show more

    The acting in the movie was extraordinarily good, especially Ms. manville with her expressive face. But why hasn\'t someone mentioned the strange beginning of this movie which has nothing to do with the rest of the movie, and the non-ending?

    Depressing and uninteresting. Flat, cliche-ish, and annoying characters. Skip this one.

    94% Viewer Score and 80% Critic Score??? Are you kidding me? This movie isn't just bad, it is horrible. Went with my girlfriend, we were half of the four people in the theater and the other two left after half an hour, leaving us on our own. In the end we stuck it out just as a test of wills. There is simply no point to this awful movie except to make the viewer uncomfortable and depressed. Where is the character development? Why would you care about any of these people when we don't get to know anything about them? We are just skipping from one awkward scene to the next. No explanations, no conclusions, just nothing of substance. This is literally one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I truly can't fathom how Roger Ebert and a few others think this is a good movie, and the thought of this being nominated for any kind of award is absolutely absurd. Two hours of my life that I will never get back.
