Sutherland joins Ferrer and Douglas fleshing out the impressionists
14 September 2005 | by (Minneapolis, MN USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this years ago but I remember it being a charming movie, notable for Sutherland's characterization of Gauguin (with makeup and lighting, the resemblance is remarkable) and of the depiction of the delicate relationship between him and the house-girl.

The title I saw it under, "A Wolf at the Door", refers to a fable related by Gauguin in the movie, which greatly illumines Gauguin's attitude, his life and the movie. Sutherland's reading of that fable is chilling.

I would place it with the other depictions of French artists by American movies e.g.: Moulin Rouge, Lust for Life, etc. It's less flashy than those and more realistic. Pity it hasn't been released on DVD
