Loving Vincent

LOVING VINCENT is the world’s first fully painted feature film. It features over 120 of Vincent Van Gogh’s greatest paintings. The plot, drawn from the 800 letters written by the painter himself, lead us to the significant people and events in the time leading up to his unexpected death.

Time & Tickets

No other artist has attracted more legends than Vincent 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, and obscured by myth and time.

LOVING VINCENT lets the paintings tell the real story of Vincent van Gogh. Every one of the 65,000 frames of the film is an oil-painting hand-painted by 125 professional oil-painters. The film was first shot as a live action film with actors, and then hand-painted over frame-by-frame in oils. 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.

Hugh Welchman, 2017, 95 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Douglas Booth, Robert Gulaczyk, Eleanor Tomlinson, Jerome Flynn, Saoirse Ronan.
