A portrait of the life of Vincent Van Gogh from childhood to death.
24 July 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Thankfully this telling of the life of Vincent Van Gogh doesn't dodge Vincent's disturbed mind but fails to develop a coherent presentation. Van Gogh's life is presented in great detail, including a disturbed family life, the likely cause of his mental instability. The relationship between Vincent and his brother Theo is nicely developed, including its roots in childhood. For a lover of Van Gogh art there's very little about the growth of his his remarkable vision of art. The early paintings of the potato growers elided over completely. The director throws together a pastiche of repetitive events using a mix of film editing styles and hopes the viewer will sort it all out. Interesting but in the end disappointing.
