Distant Voices, Still Lives

5

Tinted with all the sensuous pathos of a faded photograph, Terence Davies’ 1988 debut remains one of the most stunning British films ever made. Two weddings and a funeral anchor this autobiographical cine-poem following the life of a working-class family in post-war Liverpool. Clocking in at just 85 minutes, this poignant, vivid masterpiece is truly unique.
