This 60-minute bio-pic is both engaging and informative, and quite
As someone who has read Irving Stone's consummate biography of Van
Gogh, "Lust for Life", I wasn't sure that I really needed what I
perceived as the possible redundancy of this film. I finally watched it
(on YouTube) because of Benedict Cumberbatch, arguably Britain's best
young film actor.
I was very very pleasantly surprised. This isn't your normal bio-pic,
where scenes are invented and dialogue is fabricated and everything is
only a vague approximation of history at best, and a Hollywoodized
confection or melodrama at worst. Instead, the entire script of this
bio-doc is taken verbatim from the letters of Vincent Van Gogh and his
brother Theo, and also from those of their contemporaries. The words
taken from the letters are ingeniously and engagingly acted out by each
actor in their respective locales.
While this might sound possibly dry, it is anything but. For one, we've
got Benedict Cumberbatch. I've grown used to brilliant performances by
Benedict, and this is yet another one. Vincent comes brilliantly and
evocatively alive here. And I must add, to Cumberbatch's enormous
credit, he never overplays Vincent -- a figure of such wild passions
and a life of such melodrama that it would have been easy to slip into
For another, the program is bookended by a prologue and epilogue
pleasantly and reverently explaining the material and sources, and the
drama includes appropriate narration by this same presenter when the
story radically shifts time and place.
Lastly, beyond the excellent performances and vivid storyline, we have
the drawings, sketches, studies, and incredible paintings of Vincent
himself, interpolated easily into the narrative, in exquisite
high-definition shots. I've never seen Van Gogh's art presented so
vividly on film -- it's a real treat.
All in all, I learned a lot, even though I thought I already knew most
of Van Gogh's story. And the acting, narration, and artwork were
splendid. Highly recommended.
