Loving Vincent





A feature film about the life and mysterious death of Vincent Van Gogh. No one can tell if it will be a good movie story-wise, but as far as being beautiful and innovative, it has much more artistic value than anything the corporate Disney machine has put out in a long time. And something like this deserves recognition above another formulated princess story. So, here's a homework assignment, do one oil painting worthy of being in this movie. And then imagine doing that 25,000 more times in animated succession.

  • Directors: Dorota Kobiela, Hugh Welchman
  • Writers: Jacek Dehnel, Dorota Kobiela
  • Stars: Saoirse Ronan, Aidan Turner, Eleanor Tomlinson

The name of this song is called NOAH Soundtrack - The Spirit Of The Creator Moved Upon The Face Of The Waters. Took me a bit to find it but here we are! To those who made this trailer, it may be a good idea to add the creators of the music into your description and to all others....Enjoy!!! :)...


Beautifully done. I did find myself wondering, however, if the film is going to push the "insanity" issue? Because the man was highly intelligent (read his letters to his brother in the book, "Dear Theo") and was anything but insane. He was, however, very ill physically, largely undernourished, and of course he drank much absinthe, which tends to affect one's vision, causing one to perceive yellow more intensely. He had venereal disease and suffered from pica, a condition in which one tends to nibble on non-food items. He tended to put his paintbrushes into his mouth and those paints contained lead, so obviously he had lead-poisoning. In his early thirties, his teeth began to break off, which clearly indicates a mineral deficiency. And eventually the venereal infection had to have finally affected his brain because there were no antibiotics in those days. But as you know, there are those who assume that the man must always have been "insane," and that idea has no doubt helped to sell millions of reproductions of his work, to say nothing of his actual paintings. Hopefully the film will approach his life not from a fanciful place but from a realistic standpoint. He WAS a very talented man, but spent the money his brother sent him on paints and models, and not enough on food. He largely lived off of dry bread, old cheese, lots of coffee, and a few olives. This were not the only things he ate, of course, but when one's teeth begin to break off, it tells you something. His circumstances were very unfortunate, and he tended to be overly impulsive with women, leading to many disappointments. So of course he experienced much sadness. But we all need to stop seeing Van Gogh as insane. His was a hard life, but he was not a mad man ...

Can't wait to see this. They literally brought my wish to life. I always imagined how cool it would be if Van Gough's paintings came to life. He has always been my favorite artist. I've found his paintings to have a lot of motion and raw energy in them...
