CAST
LOVING VINCENT (2017)
Starring Aidan Turner, Saoirse Ronan, Douglas Booth, Eleanor Tomlinson, Jerome Flynn, Chris O'Dowd, John Sessions, Helen McCrory, Holly Earl and Bill Thomas. Directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman.

Inspired by a letter Vincent Van Gogh penned in the week before he died, in which he noted that “we cannot speak other than by our paintings”, Oscar-winning filmmaker Hugh Welchman ('Peter and the Wolf') and Polish painter Dorota Kobiela decided to make a movie doing exactly that.

The lm brings the paintings of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. Every one of the 65,000 frames of the lm is an oil-painting hand-painted by professional oil-painters who travelled from all across Europe to the Loving Vincent studios in Poland and Greece to be a part of the production. As remarkable as Vincent’s brilliant paintings, is his passionate and ill-fated life, and mysterious death.

REVIEWS Loving Vincent - A rich visual feast
