Still Life is a poignant drama about  a lonely, sweetly idealistic man who finds fulfilment in helping everyone but himself. John May works for a South London local council, finding the next of kin of those who have passed away alone. After an abrupt notice of impending redundancy, John pursues his final assignment: a search for the relatives an elderly neighbour.  He traces the neighbour’s abandoned daughter and a friendship develops.  Still Life is a meticulously fabricated valentine to John’s forlorn, noble pursuit of meaningful community. It is a striking second film for Uberto Pasolini, the London-based Italian film-maker best known as the producer of The Full Monty.
