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, Armand becomes increasingly fascinated in the psyche and fate of Van Gogh as numerous suspicious details fail to add up. However, as Armand 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.

It's a visual Treat!
31 January 2018 | by willeasyerSee all my reviews

I can't imagine all the hard work it took to make this movie, it took 30000 painting to make it and the result is outstanding and magical. As a huge Van Gogh admirer I couldn't but enjoy this work of art it's very beautiful, very touching and very loyal to his heritage. It explores the complex persona of one of the biggest minds and talents of our history, his close relationship with his brother and the circumstances of his death. An artist who led a hard tormenting life, never been understood and never got the recognition he deserved in his living still his heritage lived on and now he's one of the most respected and admired artists in history and his paintings are highly demanded & sold with hundred millions of dollars after being left out and rejected during his lifetime (life hein). Am glad this movie finally saw the light of day, it's a great starter for the people who want to get familiar with this genius work and life, all in a short amount of time plus having a visual orgasm on the road.
