Synopsis

The tragic story of beloved Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh (Robert Gulaczyk). On July 27, 1890, his gaunt figure stumbled down a quiet street at twilight in the small French country town of Auvers, where he lived. His hands were pressing on a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly. Vincent, at the time a little known but prolific artist, was in trouble.

This movie tells his story up to that point, including his struggles with insomnia, mental illness, depression, malnutrition and alcoholism. It also delves into the mystery behind his death.

  • 5 stars "It is an amazing film, created with 65,000 original hand-painted oil paintings. Every inch of this film is painted in a way that Vincent Van Gogh would paint it, with the gestural brush strokes and vibrant color. It is completely riveting in dynamic action and storyline. Fantastic! I've seen it three times, and will see it many more times."
  • 3 stars "I have to watch only for the art that is embodied in the movie"
  • 5 stars "Uniquely crafted, beautiful, emotional movie - especially for those of us who are especially visually sensitive. I was so stunned that I could not even move out of my seat until my brain and heart had processed for at least 15 minutes! Absolutely wonderful. Am going to see it again!"
