Anamystic’s review published on Letterboxd:
Nice and cosy film to watch during a rainy night.
It is visually lovely and to be able to see Van Gogh's paintings like if they were actually alive, it's bloody amazing.
I can't believe he sold only ONE painting while he was still alive. He painted approximately 800 canvas in 8 years, about 100 paintings per year. The movie makes you feel very emotional about that, you're seeing a man who's struggling to have faith in his creations back then, while almost 200 years later he is one of the most famous painter ever.
It's interesting to have different points of view of his story through the characters, it feels like a mystery film.
I also liked the fact that it's short, like 1h30.
In addition to the movie, I highly recommend the book that compiles most of the letters Van Gogh used to send to his brother Théo.
