Inherent in the very title of the film Still Life lies its biggestchallenge – how to convey a sense of stillness in a medium that by itsvery name is supposed to, yes, move. And yet, Uberto Pasolini, whowrote and directed Still Life, rivals the Flemish masters of old. Whata triumph. What layers ...
This is a great film, absorbing from start to finish. The lead actorEddie Marsan (playing John May) is outstanding. Let me first say that this is not a comedy. It has a dark theme,loneliness and death. May works for the council and his delightful jobis to track down relatives of people who have died...
A tour-de-force by Eddie Marsan, in the quietest possible way. This isa poignant, thoughtful look at a man out of step with the modern world,who still holds to the (outdated) values of treating others withdignity and respect, in their last journey. He plays a British civilservant whose job is to org...
This is a movie that centers on loneliness and living a passive,uneventful life. The setting of the story is a bit unusual but simple,so what makes the movie interesting is the exaggerated sensibility ofthe main character. The main character is so compassionate and pitifulat the same time that viewe...
This is my first-ever review on IMDb (and my first movie review aswell), but while watching this superb gem of cinematography I couldn'thelp but think that it deserved the effort.I will not go into details as for the plot, which is quite simple andlinear, yet very peculiar. The movie is about the ev...
A great movie about discipline, responsibility and the importance ofperforming at your best whatever task you have to carry out. Animportant message in times of complain, protest and nihilism. Thedirector powerfully uses images more and better than the dialogue. Inthis respect, he stands aside the g...
It is not often I would give a movie 10 out of 10 but this one reallydeserves the rating.A movie that seemingly starts off as a rather ordinary piece of workbecomes a truly fascinating insight into an aspect of life we all missbecause it occurs under our noses. An ordinary man is not an ordinary man...
We saw 'Still Life" on Sunday- a truly beautiful film that is awonderful and heart-churning lesson in how we relate to others in lifeand the reminder to connect with people. When the effort of not tryingto cry causes such gut-wrenching anguish, you know that the film-makerhas said what needs to be e...
Some movies have as their purpose to excite, to amaze, to intrigue orto provoke laughter. Others are there to make you think and feel andcare. Still life is one of those. Although it is described in thepromos as a comedy/drama it is not. It is a gentle and moving visualelegy for human beings. The pl...
With only his second film as director, Italian filmmaker UbertoPasolini has produced an exquisite character study of a man we neveractually meet. With Still Life, Pasolini presents a story that seems soserene and simple on the surface, yet offers so much more in itsexploration of themes such as frie...
I never write reviews about a film but couldn't help but leaving areview of this one. I started watching this film thinking it would be acomedy, after all, the subject matter of the film made me think thatcomedy would be a must in order to keep the audience watching. It tookno more than ten minutes ...
OMG, this was one of the saddest, most depressing movies I've everseen.That's not to say that it wasn't a good movie, or even that I didn'tlike it, but this movie is definitely not for everyone.John May is a nebbish, a cipher, an anonymous clerk in a ministryoffice whose job it is to settle the affa...
Absolutely brilliant little film that holds on to the small things inlife in every aspect with superb subdued acting, colours and sound.Almost as a mime John May shows his compassion with his fellow humanbegins, no matter who they are, or rather were. There are severalsuperb surprises along the way,...
Are some people destined to be alone? This movie suggests that is thecase. John May, a simple name for a man with a simple, even stark, lifeexists almost in a vacuum. His job is to track down the family membersof people who die alone, and he does this with care and compassion. Heeven keeps a photo a...
It has been almost 20 years since Uberto Pasolini was Oscar-nominatedfor producing "The Full Monty". Here he gives us his second movie aswriter and director after the Sri Lancan "Machan" from five years ago."Still Life" or "Mr. May and the Whisper of Eternity" (literaltranslation of German title) wo...
Movie addicts have an affection for boring England. But the same goesfor the British bureaucrat. The last one for whom the word Duty isn'tempty.In this version he works for the council, fixing funerals for thelonely. Nobody will attend, except for this official and the priest.It's Eleanor Rigby for ...
Brilliant, emotional, thought-provoking movie.The story of a man whose job it is to trace the relatives and friendsof deceased people. A dour, methodical, deliberate man, the movie dealsmostly with a particular case of his, and the effect it has on him andother people concerned.From the start the mo...
Perfect movie! Easily 5 stars. From watching the trailer i knew itwould be a dark/emotional film, and it was flawlessly executed anddelivered (written/directed/edited)! Do not expect a happy feel-good movie! This is a masterpiece for thethinking/intellectual/soulful human, not your average idiot mov...
Still Life is a surprising little film brought to us by writer-Directer Uberto Pasolini, it was shot in 2013 and finally made its wayto me and I'm glad that I decide to see it. The film depicts the lifeand work of John May (Eddie Marsan) a council worker looking for theliving relatives of those foun...
Set in modern day London - an uncaring and less than friendly citywhere lives carry on with their value unacknowledged. This is a filmthat is moving, thought provoking and causes ones own reflection onlife. Loneliness is a dreadful affliction and you can never be morealone than in a crowded city. Th...
Truly moving and compassionate story of a quiet, lonely, and friendlesspublic servant in London, daily laboring diligently in a thankless jobthat few would want, but he did it so well that his efforts might becalled almost "heavenly". To him, his job was important to the point ofcritical accuracy in...
It's difficult to find a film that touches many of the emotions thatthis one does. Billed as a comedy drama, I'm not sure that fits. Thereis drama and there is comedy, but not in any extreme way.The story is quaint. John May is a detective, but not in the usualsense: he is tasked by the local boroug...
Wow! for me this is the best film for many a year in this genre.it'sslow in pace,but realistically this is the point (for me anyway) of themovie..when talking in the themes mentioned here...loneliness and lackof love...life can often feel still.. The music as always by Rachelportman is incredible,sh...
In a shifting world, where everything goes fast, and we try to get onwith our busy busy lives, comes this quiet, haunting and basic filmwhich very bluntly give us a reminder of what really matters;friendship and that somebody care for us, even when we are gone. Thefilm deals with death, but the mess...
I found this to be a sad but engaging film, with Eddie Marsan perfectlyunderstated in the role of a lonely civil "detective" who devotes hislife to finding relatives of the deceased to attend their funerals.With precious little financial reward, this unassuming bureaucratfights a quiet, personal bat...
