On 27th July 1890 a gaunt figure stumbled down a drowsy high street at twilight in the small French country town of Auvers. The man was carrying nothing; his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly. This was Vincent van Gogh, then a little-known artist; now the most famous artist in the world. His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot.
The world’s first fully painted film, with over 65,000 frames painted on over 1,000 canvases, Loving Vincent, tells that story.
Tim Robey at THE TELEGRAPH SAYS: “a beautifully textured tribute to Van Gogh”.
