Uberto Pasolini’s Still Life (2013)

Classic Film Night

In Uberto Pasolini’s quietly poignant 2013 film, Still Life, Eddie Marsden stars as John, a lonely council worker whose job it is to find the next of kin for those who have died alone.

For him, though, it is not so much a job as a vocation, and he is somewhat obsessive in making sure that each person is treated with dignity, writing their eulogies himself and ensuring they haveĀ  funerals.

When the council terminates his position after 22 years as part of a cost cutting exercise, John decides to make his last assignment really count, taking him on an illuminating journey.
