Paris, 1880. Paul Gauguin is a successful financier. He lives in Paris with his wife Mette and their four children. But when his passion for painting becomes a mission to revolutionize art, Gauguin must unleash the savage within himself. To do so he gives up his job and comfortable lifestyle, leading his family into a downward spiral of poverty and travels to Tahiti. His voyages take him even further from his beloved family and teach him the true meaning of the word sacrifice. What price must he pay in order to pursue his dream? Written by
"Paradise Found" attempts to tell the story of Paul Gauguin (Sutherland) and flops. The film neither works as a biopic or a drama treating the subject only superficially, leaving gaping holes where important events belong, showing generally lackluster direction, and apparently fraught with low budgetness. Those interested in the life of Gauguin can learn more in a few minutes on the internet and those interested in a drama can easily dredge up something better on broadcast. Nonetheless, "Paradise Found" may have some value for Sutherland or Kinski fans or others who happen to surf it on broadcast as did I. (C)
