  • Review

    The story starts at a huge cattle slaughterhouse. Animals intuitively resist their fate, but they are brutally killed at the abattoir. A pet dog of a butcher boy witnesses this horror and falls into despair. Still Life is based on ’slaughterhouses metaphysics,´ a philosophical reason. Director Maud Alpi consistently made films based on animals and solidifies his position through this feature debut film. Despite the documentary like touch, Still Life is an obvious fiction. The slaughterhouse is the stage and a place of projected reality. Amongst the dystopian landscape with mangled body parts and the terrible racket of heavy machinery, the audience sees the other possibilities through the stray dogs’ final destination. This is a controversial film that reflects on the age of barbarism through an unbearable slaughter image. [JANG Byungwon]
