This movie is a lot of things. I loved the scenery and the olden days sense you get from watching it, but it's also very realistic in its madness and suffering. The story is intriguing and the film pretty much stays true to fact and follows the life of Vincent and Theo well. The end is depressing, and some of the movie is almost hard to watch, but it's all art and a wonderful movie in all. The actors were splendid and the movie in itself was very well done. 10/10
