Because of the death in 2009 of the director's usual producer Simon Channing-Williams, Another Year was produced by Georgina Lowe, who had worked regularly on Mike Leigh films since Naked from 1993. Thin Man Films led the production together with television channel Film4 and Focus Features International. The project received £1.2 million from the UK Film Council. The production involved a budget of around eight million US dollars, which Leigh said was "the lowest budget I've had for a long time".
Most of Another Year's key cast members had already worked with the director multiple times in the past. Leigh collaborated with the actors for five months to create their characters, world and do research. The director employed his usual technique where the actors improvise extensively during rehearsals, and the result of those improvisations becomes the basis for the final script used on the set. Principal photography took 12 weeks. To simulate the four seasons of a year, cinematographer Dick Pope used four different film stocks, and much attention was paid to details in the props so the passage of time would appear believable.
The film received almost unanimous critical acclaim throughout the world. Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reports that, as of December 25, 2010, 95% of the critics have given the film a positive review, with a rating average of 8.2 out of 10.
The film debuted at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival in competition for the Palme d'Or. Although the film failed to receive any prizes, it was among the most acclaimed at the festival, and was described as one of Leigh's best works. The film scored an impressive 3.4/4 at Screen International's annual Cannes Jury Grid, which polls international film critics from publications such as Sight & Sound, The Australian, Positif, L'Unita, Der Tagesspiegel and among others, and making it by far the best reviewed film at the festival.
Wendy Ide of The Times described the film as "Leigh at his confident best" and "a disarmingly humane work" and describes "Mike Leigh shows admirable restraint: there are no manufactured crescendos, just a melancholy refrain that builds to its raw realisation in an achingly sad final shot." Xan Brooks of The Guardian described Another Year as "a rare treat", and Geoffrey Macnab of The Independent described the film as "an acutely well-observed study of needy and unhappy people desperately trying to make sense of their lives."
