Loving Vincent

1h 31m Drama 2017

The life and mysterious death of artist Vincent van Gogh are vividly rendered in the world’s first feature length painted animation.

The artistic legacy of Vincent van Gogh is brilliantly rendered in the world’s first fully painted animation; each one of the film’s 65,000 frames is hand-painted by one of the 125 professional painters recruited to work on the film. Set in the year following Van Gogh’s untimely death in 1890, Loving Vincent plays like a murder mystery but never loses sight of the deep and complicated humanity of a man whose work continues to affirm the mystery and power of life.

A cast of English and Irish actors including Saoirse Ronan, Douglas Booth, Chris O’Dowd and Jerome Flynn give voice to characters drawn from Van Gogh’s life in a biographical tale of unexpected revelations that shaped the last months of Vincent’s emotionally turbulent life in the quiet French village of Auvers-sur-Oise.
