On July 27, 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. LOVING VINCENT tells that story. Shot as a live-action film with an incredible cast — including Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird), Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids), Jerome Flynn (Game of Thrones), and stage actor Robert Gulaczyk as van Gogh — and then painstakingly hand-painted frame by frame by a team of over 115 artists – LOVING VINCENT is a wondrous cinematic achievement.
“One of the most lunatic labors of love to appear on movie screens this year. Afnd in that sense, a fitting, miraculous tribute to its subject.” – Joe McGovern, Entertainment Weekly
“Loving Vincent is almost too beautiful for its own good; I found myself, too often, so dazzled by the form that I quite forgot about the content.” – Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
