I’m not a Van Gogh fan really and as such, didn’t really know too much about him, aside the usual stuff. The story here looks at the artists death, what really happened, what were the events that lead up to Van Gogh’s final days. It’s a very dramatic retelling, but I’m not convinced it would be half as entertaining were it not that the entire film is hand painted frame by frame. It really is quite remarkable, a lovely idea, wonderfully conceived. This isn’t pure animated fantasy though, the scenes have been acted with a full cast, then committed to canvas. It’s a great piece of work, charming and insightful, although a little cold.
