Still Life With Wife

2006 / 52’

An intimate portrait of husband and wife Titov, an Estonian couple married for over twenty years who, despite constant quarrelling, still stick together. His wife's sarcasm in a way inspires him to paint whilst she, despite all his “imperfections”, admires his persistence in painting, although his status as a self-taught painter doesn’t allow him to either exhibit or sell his works.

They only meet on a few occasions but when they do they start fighting immediately… (Simon Popek)
