Uberto Pasolini “Still Life” follows the story of Jon May (Eddie Marsan), a funeral officer and public servant responsible for burying those without relatives. “As he struggles to proved dignity in death to those who had lost it in life, he tenderly writes eulogies and carefully chooses music to accompany the funerals. But he always fails in his attempts to have someone present, leaving him alone to witness his “clients'” last journeys on earth. When an unknown neighbor dies alone and friendless, John May takes on his case as a final assignment. Overcoming rejections and dead ends, he travels across the country tracking down Billy Stoke’s scattered family and forgotten friends, to ensure his will not be another unattended, cheerless funeral.” [Synopsis courtesy Venice Film Festival.]
In this exclusive clip, it appears Mr. May’s skills and intelligence might be worthy of a more exciting job, but it sounds like he wouldn’t have it any other way. Check out the clip below:
