FILM: Loving Vincent (12A)
Thu, 15th March, 2018 @ 19:00pm - 20:35pm£4 – £5
Loving Vincent is the world’s first fully painted feature film produced by Oscar-winning studios Breakthru Films and Trademark Films.
His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot.
“The man was carrying nothing; his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly.”
This was Vincent van Gogh, then a little known artist; now the most famous artist in the world.
Loving Vincent tells that story
“This one-of-a-kind Vincent Van Gogh biopic appropriates the artist’s vibrant impasto style, using animated oil paintings to examine the mystery of his last days. That means every one of the nearly 65,000 frames in this near-lunatic labour of love was rendered by hand with oil paints, following a style intended to mimic that of the master — which has precisely the effect you might imagine, pulling audiences into the delirious, hyper-sensual world suggested by van Gogh’s oeuvre.” Variety
“Every one of the nearly 65,000 frames in this near-lunatic labor of love was rendered by hand with oil paints, following a style intended to mimic that of the master.” Variety
“A triumph of painstaking technical prowess and stunning visuals over storytelling and dialogue. See it for its nuanced take on a huge cultural figure and to applaud its astounding audacity.” Empire
