Loving Vincent poster @2x

Loving Vincent brings the paintings of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. Every frame of the film, totalling around 65,000, is an oil-painting hand-painted by 125 professional artists from all over the world. As remarkable as Vincent’s brilliant paintings, is his passionate and ill-fated life, and mysterious death.

As remarkable as van Gogh’s brilliant paintings are, it is his passionate and ill-fated life and mysterious death that also stand out.

No other artist has attracted more attention than van Gogh. Variously labelled a martyr, a lustful satyr, a madman, a genius and a layabout, the real Vincent is at once revealed in his letters, obscured by myth and time. Vincent himself said in his last letter: ‘We cannot speak other than by our paintings’. We take him at his word and let the paintings tell the real story of Vincent van Gogh.

Loving Vincent features a cool cast including Chris O’Dowd and Saoirse Ronan who not only voiced but served as visual inspiration for the paintings. The film was first shot as a live action with actors, then hand-painted in oils frame-by-frame. The final effect is an interaction of the performance of the actors playing Vincent’s famous portraits, and the performance of the painting animators, bringing these characters into the medium of paint. Awe-inspiring stuff!

 

‘Loving Vincent’ is in cinemas November 2.
