Van Gogh is Alive!
17 September 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

What a wonderful film to introduce children to the world of art. Nina Petronzio is a doll and really connects to young viewers who may otherwise be bored by a film like this. My children watch this film regularly and have since developed a love for artwork, particularly Vincent Van Gogh. Where normal "art driven" films are either documentaries or mature subject matter, this film and the actors really connect to both adult viewers, art experts, and children. I can't say enough about this film and the performances and wish that there would be more films like this to choose from when picking material for my entire family to enjoy. Does anyone else out there have other suggestions? Would love to hear.
