Loving Vincent is a film that seriously takes viewers through the life of artist Vincent Van Gogh by skillfully paying homage to his painting style right in its cinematography. There’s no better way to travel into his world then by witnessing each carefully painted frame.

In fact, this movie is the very first feature film of its kind. Or rather, it’s the first painting of its kind. It took 100 artists, who paint in Van Gogh’s style to create what is essentially a moving painting. Each of the 720 frames per minute is actually a carefully crafted oil painting!

Since Hollywood tends toward gutter-pomp and circumstance – versus art and aesthetics – this is one film I will be rushing to when it’s finally finished. Painters are still be recruited from the film that began work in 2011. Whether you love Van Gogh or not – the movie is not just a breath of fresh air because of its novelty – it is entertainment that is actually a true homage to art and life. How beautiful.

From the movie’s website:

The intrigue unfolds through interviews with the characters closest to Vincent and through dramatic reconstructions of the events leading up to his death.

Loving Vincent features over one hundred and twenty of Vincent Van Gogh’s greatest paintings. The plot, drawn from the 800 letters written by the painter himself, lead us to the significant people and events in the time leading up to his unexpected death.

This trailer for Loving Vincent is breathtaking, complete with music to time-travel to – the concept trailer follows.
