    This Year`s Love is a bittersweet romantic comedy about love, sex and heartbreak. It follows six twenty-somethings looking for romance and that special someone.

    An apparently perfect relationship between tattoo artist Danny (Douglas Henshaw) and Hannah (Catherine McCormack) ends in tears on the wedding day, even before the cake is cut.

    Back in `singles` life, they meet Liam (Ian Hurt) a passionate obsessive, Marey (Kathy Burke), a pub singer, Sophie (Jennifer Ehle), rich kid turned rebel, and Cameron (Dougray Scott) a good looking artist and rogue.

    One by one, their paths tangle and untangle over the course of three years with consequences that are sad, strange and hilarious!

    This is an above average romantic comedy with a cracking soundtrack. However the disc itself is a little disappointing… the video transfer is ok, but nothing special… the audio is only Dolby Pro-Logic… and the extras are a little poor as well.

    At first glance it looks like we may have gained a number of interesting extras - a making of, interviews, a 'featurette' and a trailer. Unfortunately while some of the interviews are quite interesting - on average none of these extras manage to get me really excited, and there is a lot of repetition as well, which irritated me a lot.

    Still - an amusing film, well worth a purchase if it's on offer (£8.99 from at the moment).
