Loving Vincent [2017]

‘Loving Vincent’ tells the story of a young man who travels to the last hometown of Vincent Van Gogh to deliver the artist’s last letter but ends up investigating his death. The story is depicted in a oil painted animation and was directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman. 

Before diving into this movie review I just wanted to apologize for not being active here, I couldn’t read your blogposts or answer any of your comments, I really didn’t have time but anyways, now I am back and ready to socialize. If you didn’t know I was in the alps of France and it was so fun. Stay Tuned for a post on my trip there.

I honestly loved this movie, it’s a very emotional movie that focuses on the death of the troubled artist and that is executed in a unique way.

I really loved that of idea of making a movie in the same way Van Gogh painted. I also loved how we get to know Van Gogh through flashbacks  and through the eyes of his acquaintances/friends, it makes the movie more interesting and unique. Moreover, the story is very well constructed and developed and I loved how it mainly takes place a few weeks after Vincent kills himself.

The acting is also on point. Even though it’s an animated movie so facial expressions are not very elaborated, the actors were able to deliver their intentions and feelings through their voices and that is amazing.

[The soundtrack is also very beautiful]

I really recommend this movie, it’s amazing visually and storywise.

    Welcome back! 🙂
    I’ve been binge watching people’s top movies of 2017 lists and I’ve heard Loving Vincent mentioned a few times. What an interesting method to create a movie – oil paining stills! I’m curious just from a technical level.

    • January 29, 2018 / 9:42 am

      yes it is very creative. No wonder why it’s on poeple’s top movie of 2017!! Thanks for reading!
