In French with English subtitles

As one of Maurice Pialat’s masterpieces, Van Gogh retraces the last 67 days of the Dutch painter’s life. It explores his complex relationships with women, his brother Theo, and his physician, as well as his declining mental health. The film also subtly portrays the social dynamics that characterized the 19th Century.

Perfectly encapsulating Pialat’s unsentimental and realist style, the film is renowned of its subtle anti-melodramatic approach to Van Gogh’s life. The film stars French actor Jacques Dutronc as Vincent Van Gogh, a role for which he won the 1992 César Award for Best Actor.
