Description

Subtitles - Lithuanian

Remarkable animated work brings to life the paintings of Vincent van Gogh via a kind of rotoscoping technique with an obsessive attention to detail never seen before. The film took seven years to make, and each of its 65,000 frames was hand-painted by one of 125 professional oil-painters. More than 130 paintings by van Gogh serve as the initial backgrounds for a kind of detective tale wherein Armand Roulin, the son of the postmaster in Arles, tries to understand how the painter could go from the tranquil artist he knew to a suicide in only six weeks.
