Loving Vincent, a “movie about Vincent Van Gogh”, is a world’s first fully painted animation feature, directed and written by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman and made by a team of over 100 professional artists. They used the same technique as Van Gogh and in the process made a total of 853 different oil paintings. You can find more information about this on Loving Vincent official website.

One year after the death of Vincent van Gogh (Robert Gulaczyk), Postman Roulin (who was Vincent’s friend) sends his son Armand (Douglas Booth), to deliver the Van Gogh’s last letter to his brother, Theo, after multiple failed postal delivery attempts. Soon Armand arrives to Auvers-sur-Oise and meets villagers who knew Vincent and ends up investigating his final days there.

If Loving Vincent wasn’t made by this technique it wouldn’t be anything special. Don’t get me wrong, it is not a bad movie at all, it just isn’t anything new or original. Like a TV movie to watch on lazy and rainy Sunday. The story is ok, actors did a pretty good job and the movie is interesting to watch. But, the visual aspect of this movie is something else – it is unique, innovative and beautiful to watch. 100 professional artist did an excellent job and Loving Vincent is worth checking out just because of its visual aspect alone.
