Storyline

A year after the death of the artist, Vincent van Gogh, Postman Roulin gets his slacker son, Armand, to hand deliver the artist's final letter written to his now late brother, Theo, to some worthy recipient after multiple failed postal delivery attempts. Although disdainful of this seemingly pointless chore, Armand travels to Auvers-sur-Oise where a purported close companion to Vincent, Dr. Gachet, lives. Having to wait until the doctor returns from business, Armand meets many of the people of that village who not only knew Vincent, but were apparently also models and inspirations for his art. In doing so, Armond becomes increasingly fascinated in the psyche and fate of Van Gogh as numerous suspicious details fail to add up. However, as Armond digs further, he comes to realize that Vincent's troubled life is as much a matter of interpretation as his paintings and there are no easy answers for a man whose work and tragedy would only be truly appreciated in the future.

Vincent Van Gogh was one of the world's most controversial painters, both during his life, and after his death... This film is an examination of the death of this famed artist. It questions the cause of his death. Did he really commit suicide? Or was it something else?... The movie asks the questions, but does not give answers, letting the viewer have the final say...

The visual experience is intensely mesmerizing. A team of 100 artists created the 65,000 hand-painted frames in the style of Van Gogh's paintings, giving us a view inside Van Gogh's head, and enabling us to see the world through his eyes...

The memorable film score is by the great composer Clint Mansell. As a perfect companion to the story of suspicion and grief, the score enriches the viewing experience while also succeeding as it's own distinct, artistic composition...

The only stumble I see comes from the script. The plot is a retelling of what we already know. The story-line is limited to the time of Van Gogh's death, and it does not tell us that much about his work or his life...

However, the film is a must-see for Van Gogh fanatics and all art lovers...
