Knew nothing of this film, but spotted the DVD on the shelf with Nathanial Parker on the cover, so thought it would be interesting. Let’s say: fair to midland. I already barely remember the plot. I am also a bit bothered when a British actor is cast as a French Canadian detective; similar to the British production with Kenneth Branaugh as the Swedish dectective Wallander.

Acting terrible, scenery lovely.

Acting and casting so disappointing. Wanted it to be good. Love her books. Audio books by Ralph Cosham much better than film. He made characters come alive in their quirkiness.

Ok, let's get this off the table:
I am not a Canadian, AND I haven't read the book(s), so my panties will not be in a bunch over the "butchered" book to film comparisons for this murder mystery, or the abhorrent lack of Frenchy-ness. I enjoyed it. Very scenic, very quaint. And apparently, the author Louise Penny who was dead-set against releasing the film rights for years, only finally succumbing here, oversaw the entire creative process, so I can't see how things could go that far astray from her vision if she was on board...

"Still Life" a three pies mystery does nothing to satisfy me. The only recognizable star is Nathaniel Parker but frankly anyone else could have done an equally good job considering the story. There may be sequels that improve my interest but frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.

I loved this movie: Sandbridge East in the Eastern Townships is the perfect setting for "Still Life" and the little village of Three Pines. Nathaniel Parker is just right for Gamache, though a mustache would have helped the authenticity of his image. Clara and Ruth could have been a lot more earthy and Beauvoir and members of the Surete de Quebec should have been a bit more Quebecois. I have read the book twice yet that did nothing to detract from my pleasure in this thoroughly enjoyable movie. The extras were a real bonus too. I hope the next movie comes out soon and that Ruth gets to swear a bit.

Enjoyed the film. Of course, a film does not have the depth, history and character development found in a book (any book). I do feel you should read the book first though, as some aspects of the film have no or less meaning without the background you get in the book version. Still, a pleasant watch.

Rated 6/10.

A pale imitation of the novel by Louise Penny. Totally miscast.

Well, I haven't read the books so I'm at a disadvantage. I had difficulty following the plot. Even though I'm a huge fan of Nathaniel Parker, I thought the acting was horrific. And the police characters seemed flat and unrealastic.
