Starry Starry Night

This is an animated film that is not aimed at children, it tells the story of Armand Roulin who at the behest of his father is trying to deliver a letter from Vincent Van Gogh to his brother Theo this leads to a series of interviews with people who knew Vincent in the months before his suicide as Roulin tries to find someone to whom he can deliver his letter. But what makes this film astonishing is its style Armand Roulin actually existed and was painted by Van Gogh and it is the Roulin of the portrait who goes on this journey where he meets other subjects of Van Gogh's portraits. All these characters are animated as if they were painted by Van Gogh and the country side, cities and buildings are all as if they are by Van Gogh so you see the swirls and brush strokes of a Van Gogh in the animation its as if the story is occurring in a world created by Van Gogh. In between there are black and white animation to explain parts of the story where no Van Gogh pictures to tell the story. There are also excellent voice performances from Aiden Turner, John Sessions, Chris O Dowd and Douglas Booth. This all makes for a fascinating, astonishing and different piece of animation that will probably reward more than one viewing.

A Masterpiece
Verified purchase
Bought this for my wife as a late Christmas present as it wasn't released until Feb.
I agreed to watch it with her, not really expecting too much and having seen some of the hype regarding the "animated painting" technique I was prepared to suffer in silence.
Wow!
A very, very clever film based on the efforts of the son of the postman to try and deliver one of Vincent's last letters to his brother Theo.
The story is told in flashback by villagers at the place where Vincent died and is captivating and unusual.
I preferred the black and white sections, my wife preferred the coloured sections, but that small difference aside, it was a lovely film to watch together.

I love vincent the painter

work like no other, though I am not sure it works. the wonderful painterly technique used in the animation is staggering, however it does remove all nuance from the actors' work - at times the movement of the figures reminds me of a very cheap cartoon by Hanna-Barbara. This is in part due to the fact that Vincent painted 'flat' pics. He made no effort to disguise the 2 dimensional space he was working in, as a consequence when figures move 'into ' the landscape it looks very awkward. Similarly the figures do not really stand out from the background. It gives the film a strangely unreal look, which rather negates the use of real actors.
The art work is staggering the way it bring to life in context the works of Vincent. My self I would have preferred a 'real life action film, with subtlety, nuance and more variety of emotion,, tone and lighting.
A great idea - though the script is lacklustre.

I have just watched this. It was movingly, hauntingly beautiful and even the paintings of the opening credits were completely enthralling. I've not watched such a touching film in a very long time and I can not recommend it highly enough - especially to others who love art, and especially those who love his art. BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! It will be regular viewing for sure. The artists who lovingly painted each frame can take great pride in knowing they have done Vincent proud. Thank you, all who had a hand in it.

I bought this product because I am a huge fan of Vincent. This dvd has a very good quality and the film was really a masterpiece which created by 100 artists. It's touching me such much that I couldn't help tearing because his story. If you are a fan as well, I will recommend it to you.

Pure Art.

Stunning. I find it hard picking superlatives for this film as everything is so brilliant. It is hypnotic watching the flickering surface of the film which so cleverly matches the Van Gogh style brushwork. Seeing the familiar paintings blend in and develop is something else altogether. For a Vincent fan like me, this film is a must.

The most beautiful film. If you love Van Gogh's paintings as I do, you will laugh as you recognise them in every scene, and more as they are incorporated into the story. If you don't know his paintings, look at them first before the film, then it will be even more enjoyable.
The storyline is interesting too, and do look up on YouTube about how it was made.
