“Loving Vincent” is one of the most anticipated films in history, the first to be fully painted and animated, and has been a work in progress for seven years. Written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, the movie contains over 65,000 frames of film, each hand painted with oils by a team of 125 artists from all over the world.

The film takes place in France, after the death of the little-known painter, Vincent Van Gogh. It follows the misadventures of Armand Roulin, played by Douglas Booth, as he traces the steps of the last days Vincent lived.

Van Gogh painted for a mere eight years and created over 800 paintings but only sold one while he was alive. This film fully captures the essence of his spirit, the madness behind his work and the struggle he endured in trying to find his way.

The film mesmerizes with clouds and grass and water that moves and undulates. This remarkable tale of the ill-starred life of Vincent Van Gogh could stand on its own merit without the effects. However, the unprecedented way in which each artist put in the effort and time and passion that Vincent would have taken himself, made everything seem timeless.

“Loving Vincent” is a must-see movie, filled with heartache, undeniable genius and vivid color: a true work of art to commemorate a true artist.
