Synopsis

Fièvre, a mysterious woman, collects dead animals in the wild and brings them back to life with animated films. One day, a man comes to see Fièvre—his wife is dead.

Our take

The 2nd short preceding Bertrand Mandico’s The Wild Boys is another succinct, phantasmagoric contraption of dreamlike rhythm’s and logic (or lack thereof!). Living Still Life revives and even queers the inspiration of Andrei Tarkovsky and his philosophy of “sculpting in time” to perfect effect.
