I wasn't aware of the events that this film was based on so the end did shock me. I felt a bit silly when i learned it actually happened. Like watching Titanic and hoping that the ship stays afloat, oh well i enjoyed it anyway.
A very aesthetically pleasing film but beyond the novelty of the hand painted frames, its quite average. I would definitely recommend it for its uniqueness, especially if you are interested in Van Gogh's life.
