Until yesterday, nothing knew Mike Lee, even the name of his not heard. Stumbled in the book you now read to mention the film. Hero — the writer is run on the night in TV, and learns a scene from "Another year": "This is stunningly good. My private conversations — shit on compared with this film". "Appalingly", this epithet uses — "scary, creepy". And I was very interested in that the film which David Mitchell (at least even by the mouth of his character) says that.

Enticing spectacle not promised, but the beginning of the film as if the goal was to push the viewer out of the kinoprogramma, "you do not like — don't listen." Let me explain. We watch movies for, to distract and to entertain, "honor madman who evokes Mankind's dream gold". We are not stupid and understand that in real life every Cinderella meets her Prince; the Ugly Duckling becomes not a Swan but the fat duck; a man, painfully not finding contact with the environment, it is unlikely would be lost in infancy the Emperor of the Universe.

We understand absolutely fairy tales crave only occasionally, when pressure is unbearable or holiday I want to create the right mood. In the rest of the time agree to settle for the truth. N-well, or her likeness. Let it be almost like in life, but a little brighter, softer, sharper, prettier, sweeter, smarter. A little more intensely, significantly and bright. Mike Lee shows life without Fleur "a little more". Like it is.

When you're over sixty, you ugly, not rich, famous all good things happen already happened, what remains? To live, hating myself and others, indignant at the injustice of the world order. When a set of components that is the same, but includes additional options interesting work, love and respect for the partner, simple hobby, then the quality changes dramatically. Off the prefix and suffix, leaving the root" to live".

Rejoicing in each new day, season, meeting, friendly swordplay with a partner, the tomatoes from his garden and colors of the girl's son. Loving the past, with a calm affectional interest, looking in the future, but while living still in the present. If so, dreams of gold and not necessary. Life is beautiful, that is, if you give yourself the trouble to build it under that want to get. About twenty minutes of the film are starting to understand it and soft charm gradually takes you in captivity.

And try on, adjust a little differently to some things in yourself and around that created discomfort. The world change — hardly. and that's something to move, eliminating the source, it is possible. Most importantly — you reach results. And Yes, dialogues are good. Although the ability to rate them the original I still long will be looked at Russian. English with voice — not that text on English. But years to sixty, if God give I will not be lazy.

Loneliness — an ambiguous term. The ambiguity of this appears at least the difference of the two phenomena in the framework of loneliness as social-psychological phenomena: positive solitude (privacy) and negative (isolation). Have all his reasons and his circumstances. Someone feels lonely even in the noisy company or dining with a loved one cool summer evening. Someone she feels lonely for the expense of the many interests and Hobbies, even though that goes to sleep every night in the arms of the pillow.

Byron said that "lonely people often feel less alone". Romain Rolland — that "a great soul never is lonely." American writer Elbert Hubbard emphasized that "true loneliness — it is the presence of a person who doesn't understand," and Arthur Schopenhauer wrote that "every man can be himself only as long as he alone." The list of great people who had a dissenting opinion about the alone, you can still a long time to continue making overtures in their direction. But the adverse is the loneliness that comes from low self-esteem, in which the person falls in a vicious circle, leading only to even more decline of the self-evaluation.

New work by Mike Leigh "Another year" is not explores the issue of a single person, but place this man once and again, in such circumstances, which show all of the daring his hands created doom through the emotional blueprint. The image is slightly blurred, but it is absolutely easy for understanding.

... Couples Tom and Jerry can only envy: they live in the full agreement and harmony with each other. But here things have a friend of Jerry and Mary are not the best way. She lonely depressed by this loneliness, although it great pleasure comes to friends but visits to pass it is not the best way.

Mary — the hysterical nature, the mood it is replaced in one second, and offense that it is one, and time flows, and a woman is aging, and it feels as if with each minute decreases it chances although a small piece of this happiness that it sees the family of Tom and Jerry, hurt this doesn't give her the rest, resulting in desire to drink wine and forget. Mary likes Joe, the son of her friends, but Joe is younger than her 20 years and he takes Mary as your aunt, and then there he got a girl. So spring gives way to summer, summer autumn, fall winter, and then comes another one year...

Intelligent drama, built on dialogue, "Another year" — one of the best movies of last year. This rare its values, humane in its metrognome, melancholic and simultaneously this light movie. Great directing and acting, not no cause a word of reproach. British humour in a combined with the tragedy of the little man, which is easily understandable to everyone, but tragedy do not expose your media offering, as we are given the opportunity to see the character with different parties, and some parties are unlikely to might like.

Very simple structure the content of the story easy to watch, if not that fun, and sharing experiencing a variety of emotions, — "Another year" — perfect job. the house, which is interesting to explore and which only become smarter.

- What else you would change in my life, except for insomnia?
- Whole life.

Have you ever wondered what waiting for you in old age? Were, where and who will spend the years, months, days? Probably not. Many of us tend to naively hope that we will spend the whole allotted time young and die not from decrepitude or disease, and instantly painless at successful coincidence of circumstances, leaving a bright trail and only pleasant memories.

Personally, I to view this film and never thought the men advanced in years you may experience a similar problem. It is considered that with the years one becomes wiser and stronger in spirit that he was beginning to worry about completely different things. But as they say, love is all ages.

Drama "Another year" is simple and clear: the family of an elderly couple as the symbol of prosperity of the society, cordially referring to those plays pre-established rules — with one hand. And frivolous, vulnerable, unsure of a woman of years 50-ti, who tried to violate moral principles — on the other.

Mary, divorced from husband after failing to arrange a personal life, often comes to visit your friends time of time intersects with their young son. Knowing it from childhood, it starts to experience to a special feeling, condemn his parents with the result of becoming persona non grata in their house. And although the end the situation is resolved safely: Joe begins to meet with age a shiftless Mary forgive latest stills, openly showing that she not able to accept, telling the audience that from illusions to get rid of not easy.

Brilliant game Leslie-I — this is what keeps the whole the emotional component of the film. Facial expressions, gaze, movement of Mary, the impulses of her soul, touching infantilism in the dream, replaced by disillusionment, despair, pain, doubt, a new hope — all transmitted as accurately, vividly and space that and after the final credits continue to empathize with the main character. The rest of the characters, their destiny, actions and dialogues like are framing her story needed background, emphasizing the depth of loneliness and rootlessness women not found himself.

A great movie for people thinking, and feeling, seeking to comprehend their own inner world and the universes of their loved ones and relatives. The real litmus test for identifying stereotypes and associated with them systems. Suggest to the viewing of Mature accomplished individuals, able to assess and make sense of what is happening without animosity, just as life experience, which you know, too much is not happen.
