The Movie:

"Truly awe-inspiring...a one-of-a-kind work of art." - Peter Debruge, Variety

"Visually the film is stunning, a flawlessly executed journey through Van Gogh's art...the portraiture works beautifully, especially because the actors who supply the characters' voices and visages are first-rate." - J.R. Jones, Chicago Reader

Billed as the world's first fully oil-painted feature film, LOVING VINCENT consumed seven years of labor and 125 artists to create the 65,000 hand-painted frames, extrapolated from Van Gogh's works, that bring the painter's world to life in all its pulsating, thickly colored glory. More than a technical stunt, the film is a compelling, thoroughly researched dramatization of Van Gogh's life, concentrating on his final weeks and rendered in CITIZEN KANE-flashbacks, as a postman's son (himself the subject of several portraits), carrying an undelivered letter from Vincent to his brother Theo, seeks to unravel the truth about the painter's contradictory personality and still-unexplained death.
