still life 2

Eddie Marsan gives a wonderfully restrained performance in this poignant and beautifully crafted film. Marsan plays unassuming council worker John May whose job is to find the relatives, and to organise the funeral, of people who have died alone. He does this with love and care and is shocked to learn that he is being made redundant. So his last job is one he takes time over. In so doing he uncovers a life of mischief, misadventure, love and regret. Through its subtle examination of loneliness, loss, community values and the human connection, Pasolini (producer of The Full Monty) has produced his most quintessentially English work yet. This is a lovely film, moving, but full of tenderness and humour.
