"Another Year" (Mike Leigh) - pure cinematic pleasure

Just saw this tonight at a preview screening. I laughed out loud, I cried. One of the mostly deeply human, warm, sad, happy, life-affirming, yet melancholic films I have ever seen. Mike Leigh and a wonderful cast at the very top of their collective game. Pure enjoyment and food for thought. What more can one ask for in a film? A candidate for film of the year.
