In a cold street in Paris, painter Paul Gauguin (Oscar Isaac) recommends that his tormented friend Vincent van Gogh (Willem Dafoe) travels to the south of France to find sunshine. This compelling recommendation leads Van Gogh to Arles, where his creative energy and his emotional problems enter in constant conflict, triggering one of the most decisive and difficult stages of the artist’s life. The Dutchman’s passion for painting and engaging with the world through art, contrasts with the hostility of the local people, his financial problems and the complicated friendship he has with Gauguin.
Julian Schanbel’s sensitivity and vision unfold with mastery, and register one of the most memorable performances by Willem Dafoe, undoubtedly one of the top actors of his generation. Schnabel builds this narrative puzzle with impressions and feelings around a relatively unknown and unexplored Van Gogh, offering the audience a vivid experience of the last days of this legendary artist.
