A gentle yet poignant slice-of-life drama from the always wonderful Mike Leigh.

Another boring year for these guys. Another year has great acting, a well written script by Mike Leigh and it may not be every ones type of film to watch, but it's still worth a watch to those who are interested in watching the movie.

The story is okay, but perhaps not as great as some of other Mike Leigh's films (Secrets & LIes and the recent Happy-Go-Lucky). However, Lesley Manville gives an outstanding performance.

Watch if you appreciate good performances.

Keine Karikaturen, keine Klischees, sondern …
