Living is a 2022 British drama film directed by Oliver Hermanus from a screenplay by Kazuo Ishiguro, adapted from the 1952 Japanese film Ikiru directed by Akira Kurosawa, which in turn was inspired by the 1886 Russian novella The Death of Ivan Ilyich by Leo Tolstoy. Set in 1953 London, it depicts a bureaucrat in the county Public Works department (played by Bill Nighy) facing a fatal illness.

Sentiment and understatement meet in this beautifully melancholy (end-of-) life drama. Deeply affecting performances from national treasure Bill Nighy (nominated for best actor Oscar) and rising star Aimee Lou Wood
