  • This is a gentle, well-observed drama with a very likeable performance from Marsan.

    February 5, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • I was intrigued by the prospect of the always-compelling Eddie Marsan playing a dull south London council funeral administrator in Still Life.

    February 5, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It is a sad, muted film, speckled with many poignant and shrewd little visual touches about what solitude feels like.

    February 5, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The presence of the great Eddie Marsan can't save this ponderous and sentimental Brit film about death and dying.

    February 5, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • This mopey British drama (2013) trades in easy ironies and self-satisfied humanism, throwing in a little ugly-duckling romance.

Audience Reviews for Still Life

  • Oct 14, 2014
    Nuanced even in its smallest details, and with an impressive performance by Eddie Marsan and a precious art direction that tells a lot about his character, this subtle film is also a delicate study on death and loneliness, although it ends with an abrupt, anticlimactic conclusion.
