  4. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Still Life

    En esta ocasión, Shahid amplia sus tiempos muertos. Es como si la rutina que se explaya y se manifiesta con letargo estuviese en relación a las actividades de sus protagonistas, personajes muy maduras que se limitan a un reducido puñado de acciones. Esta dinámica, sin embargo, es precisa para provocar la empatía, aquella que se activará con un giro dramático.

  6. Brotherdeacon's rating of the film Still Life

    It wasn't the slow pace, which fit very well, nor the lack of story, which also placed more emphasis on the characters before us; but I felt an audacious vanity on the part of the filmmaker, which jumped like lice onto this viewer. At the end of the day, it's an exploitation of difficult lives, not a meaningful presentation offered for the viewer to think freely, but a structure to force complicity of opinion, a

  7. Patrick Sheard's rating of the film Still Life

    A poignant parable of the transience of life, and the upheaval of the forsaken labourers under the Pahlavi dynasty.

  8. Nagham's rating of the film Still Life

    Sheds light upon the relationship between parents and their kids. Reminds me of Ozu's Tokyo. The bitterness and reality of growing up. Powerful and subtle.

  9. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Still Life

    Yes, the director is not afraid to bore his audience. Which we can all agree shows tremendous courage, I'm sure. Yet I'm not convinced. As a student I'd suffer these Art Film endurance tests, certain of their edifying properties. Now I can in good conscience end my pain at the 40-min mark (I understand: the theme's in the title. They're old and isolated. Still life! Got it!) and save myself that last murdered hour.

    there is a doc. that is an interview with Shahid Sales and when he is in Germany(i think!) and what is clear for me as an Iranian is his pure-wild soul,logically minded and characteristically his truthfulness.you can know that he is natural-born-maker,i love him and i cry for

    I totally agree with the commentary below. This film is pure beauty, I almost can't find the words to describe it. This masterpiece is a gem of Iranian Cinema. 5 stars

  19. All Is Grace's rating of the film Still Life

    Honestly I feel proud an Iranian director has created a film as beautiful as Still Life. This realistic, slow paced minimalistic film, with superb cinematography, shows us the monotonous life of a railway guard and finally his retirement which takes away from him the only things he has got. This film is simply a masterpiece that needs more recognition and a wider audience.

  20. Blue K, Custodian of the Cinema's rating of the film Still Life

    30 years before Pedro Costa and Jia Zhangke, there was the original *Still Life*, which still blows all the others away.
