On his father’s instruction, Armand Roulin has reluctantly undertaken a journey to hand-deliver Vincent Van Gogh’s final letter to the late artist’s brother Theo. The task leads Armand on a mission to unravel the truth about Van Gogh’s final days.
Loving Vincent is the world’s first fully painted feature film. Its plot unfolds using 65,000 hand-painted oil painting frames that bring the Dutch master’s paintings to life to tell his remarkable story.
