In late spring, 1890, Vincent Van Gogh moves to Auvers-sur-Oise, near Paris, under the care of Dr Gachet. Less than 70 days later, Vincent dies from a self-inflicted gunshot wound… Pialat’s visually striking picture concentrates entirely on the painter’s final three months.
The film looks like a succession of paintings by Renoir and Monet, presumably to show how different Van Gogh’s vision was from that of the impressionists. They observed the world, whereas Van Gogh transformed it.
