Movie Info

A new film by Kötting is cause for celebration, and his deliciously eccentric latest is a lovely portrait of the artist's daughter as a young woman in their tumbledown Pyrenean farmhouse. Last seen in Gallivant (1996) as a plucky kid touring the coastline of Britain with her Big Granny, Eden, now 23, is here shown painting still lifes and singing along to the radio as the seasons ebb and flow around her. Reminiscent of Stan Brakhage's Dog Star Man, this lo-fi marvel features music by Scanner's Robin Rimbaud.

  • Kotting gently shows us a certain time and place with eloquent affection.

  • I confess to finding it often opaque and slightly frustrating.

  • Intriguing, innovative and undoubtedly one of the director's very finest creations. This is a film to cherish.

  • 'This Our Still Life' is Ktting's attempt to make sense of their life and the footage he has shot in this bolthole on various cameras and formats over the years.

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • Hardly critic-friendly or crowd-pleasing. Instead This Our Still Life is risk-filled, innovative and larger than life.

    August 27, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This is naked cinema, a thing of great value in a period of cultural stagnation and economic adventurism. This is the analogue presentation of the shadow on the cave wall teased into the digital age.
