Plunge into the heart of Vincent van Gogh's paintings and retrace the artist's life as we read his letters and take in the beautiful locations that inspired him. Discover the fantastic colors and distinctive brushwork of a genius, far removed from the "tragic artist" image which he is known.

Relive Van Gogh's life from the time of his first canvases at the age of 27 to his death in 1890. The film covers the surprisingly short nine-year period of the artist's career during which he painted more than 900 paintings. From the Netherlands to Auvers-sur-Oise, and passing through Arles, Saint-Rémy and Paris, we follow Van Gogh's footsteps and journey through the landscapes that inspired some of the most important works in art history. From the dazzling yellow of Van Gogh's cornfields to the deep blue of his famous night sky, the vibrant palette of one of the world's most dazzling painters lights up the giant screen.
