The most interesting life story is shown in the best way possible
26 January 2001 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that it took me a while to grasp this movie. My knowledge about Vincent Van Gogh's life is huge (very modest, I know), and I thought that there is nothing new I could learn about him- until I saw this film. Its realistic style is just killing me. You're not gonna see in it any Hollywood glamour or something, Nothing's fixed or cut- Everything is shown like it's for real (unlike "Lust for life", which is a great film, but not as "Vincent and Theo"- well, it's very different). The focusing on the amazing relationship between the two brothers is great, but I think they should focus on the famous letters as well... but it's okay anyway. Tim Roth is a fabulous actor, and he acted Vincent's role very good.

The one who act Theo is also great. The end is so sad and good, and shows that not only Vincent needed Theo's help. Theo needed Vincent's help as well. Some of the scenes are just unforgettable- Vincent painting in the sunflowers field, for example. The director used amazing camera effects! It looks soooo surrealistic, but yes, you feel like you're watching the sunflowers through Vincent's eyes, through the madness. It's an amazing, shocking, interesting and full of Vincent's magical yet tragic life.

Everyone who has even the slightest interest in Vincent Van Gogh- watch it!!!
