"Life for the unassuming John May has always revolved around his work for the local council in South London, finding the next of kin of those who have died alone. Profoundly dedicated to his work, he believes that everyone deserves a dignified exit, and writes eulogies and organizes funerals for those who wouldn't have them otherwise. But when a new case - an elderly alcoholic in a flat directly opposite his own - hits him harder than usual, he journeys outside London to track down the man's long abandoned daughter. Against all odds, the two lonely souls are drawn to each other - and John's outlook starts to open to life's possibilities"--Container.

I see that several considered this film to be slow and boring. For me, slow and boring was considered, thoughtful and meticulous. It is worth watching the somewhat quirky dedication and compassion of this man who believes that each life is of value and that when we leave here that there be an acknowledgement of that life. By making it to the end of this movie I found it to have wonderful staying power and even the title “Still Life” took on multiple meanings and interpretations from still as in silent to still as in stationary to still as in only to still as enduring to still as in quiet to still life as in art.

A wonderful little movie. Nothing stands out. Not garish. No action. No cgi. Just a nice little movie that fits like a pair of slippers by the fireplace. I'll watch it again, every time I show it to another friend.

Sadly the movie is slow as it can be. I turn it off half way...

A quirky little movie that goes slowly until almost the end (which I won't reveal but it's the reason to watch it to the finish line). Very odd film but it stays with you afterwards.

I wanted this to be a quaint & delightful British drama but it wasn't. It was just dreary. I can't get those 89 minutes back now.
