Loving Vincent

Dir. Hugh Welchman, Dorota Kobiela. UK, 2017. 1h 35m. Starring Aidan Turner, Helen McCrory, Jerome Flynn, Eleanor Tomlinson, Chris O’Dowd, Robert Gulaczyk, John Sessions.

A visually dazzling animation made up of 65,000 individual oil paintings on canvas painted in Van Gogh’s hallucinatory style. The film follows a postman exploring the mystery surrounding Van Gogh’s death after being given a letter addressed to the artist.

'The animation is a mercurial wonder; a snaking, vibrant vision in the golds, ochres and cornflower blues that sing of the artist's most famous work.’ ★★★★ Wendy Ide, The Guardian

'Corn fields shimmer and rustle with slight flickers of the impasto. The night sky sparkles and swirls. And faces - even the recognisable ones of a noted British cast - pose for a set of portraits that are rarely short of captivating.’ Tim Robey, The Telegraph
