Venice Fest Player ‘Still Life’ Attracts Buyers

Pic toplines Eddie Marsan and 'Downton Abbey' thesp Joanne Froggatt

LONDON — Munich-based sales company Beta Cinema has sold Uberto Pasolini’s “Still Life” to key territories ahead of its international preem in Venice.

Wild Bunch secured the title for Benelux, while Palace Films picked up distribution rights for Australia and New Zealand. Several additional territories are in advanced negotiations. It will be released in Italy by BIM Distribuzione.
The film will screen in Venice’s Horizons section on Sept. 3.

The poignant tale of life, love and a man’s commitment to his fellow man stars Eddie Marsan (“Happy Go Lucky,” “Ray Donovan”) and Joanne Froggatt (“Downton Abbey”). The pic is Pasolini’s second feature as a director after the critically acclaimed “Machan.” He is best known as the producer of “The Full Monty,” which earned four Academy Award noms, and won one Oscar.

The film depicts the story of John May (Marsan), a solitary city hall worker, profoundly dedicated to the point of obsession, charged with finding the next of kin of those who have died alone. When his department is downsized, John must up his efforts on his final case, taking him on a liberating journey that allows him to start living life at last.

The film is produced by Red Wave/Embargo Films in association with Cinecitta Studios, Exponential Media and Rai Cinema.
