One of the most critically acclaimed films of the decade, Paul Cox's brilliant portrait of Vincent Van Gogh is a shattering journey through the life of a tortured genius who, spurned in his own time, became the single most influential artist of modern history. Despite the fact that he sold only one painting in his lifetime, what ultimately emerges is a triumphantly moving tribute to the indomitable spirit of a man who would not be compromised. Featuring a breathtaking array of original paintings and passages from Van Gogh's diaries and letters (as spoken by actor John Hurt), this is a richly impassioned film, one to be seen and cherished again and again.
