The art of Vincent Van Gogh comes vibrantly alive in this striking, entirely hand-painted film, which sets colourful turns from the likes of Douglas Booth, Chris O’Dowd, Saoirse Ronan and Aidan Turner against a backdrop of the painter’s works. Set a year after Van Gogh’s death, the story sees postmaster’s son Booth trying to solve the mystery of his demise, resulting in an odd but surprisingly intriguing tale.
