"The best testimonial a Dutch master could ask for." Washington Post

One of the top ten documentaries of the year when it was released, this vivid portrait tells the story of the tortured genius who became one of the most influential artists in history, despite selling only one painting in his lifetime.

Told through his own letters to his brother Theo, read by John Hurt, illustrated by dozens of the artist's sketches, drawings and impressionistic paintings, and accompanied by real-life landscapes as van Gogh might have seen them. A passionate tribute from acclaimed writer/director Paul Cox.
