Still Life is a poignant, quixotic tale of life, love and the afterlife. Meticulous and organized to the point of obsession, John May (Eddie Marsan) is a council worker charged with finding the next of kin of those who have died alone. When his department is downsized, John must up his efforts on his final case, taking him on a liberating journey that allows him to start living life at last. —Anonymous
Wow! for me this is the best film for many a year in this genre.it's slow in pace,but realistically this is the point (for me anyway) of the movie..when talking in the themes mentioned here...loneliness and lack of love...life can often feel still.. The music as always by Rachel portman is incredible,she always manages to deliver with her score.Eddie Marsan is perfectly cast as a man lonely and wanting to do something caring and worthwhile in his still life...And the chemistry between his character and Joanne Froggatt is excellent and realistically pulled off...better than anything nominated for an Oscar of that year...it really is beautifully done and with a lovely uplifting ending...it's a perfect emotional British film.
