Really wonderful
21 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw Van Gogh: Painted with Words as an admirer of Van Gogh's art and of Benedict Cumberbatch's acting skills. And I was not disappointed. It is photographed and designed in a very sumptuous manner, and Van Gogh's art shown vividly here. The music also impresses, with plenty of parts evoking emotion while never feeling obtrusive. Van Gogh: Painted with Words is a very well written programme too, the narration is both interesting and informative and presented clearly, and the story is every bit as vivid as Van Gogh's art with seldom a dull moment. The acting I can't fault either, Cumberbatch especially is superb once again. Overall, really wonderful, though part of me wished it was a tad longer. 9/10 Bethany Cox
