Synopsis:
The legacy of Vincent Van Gogh was not just a great number of masterpieces but also the most fascinating artist's correspondence that we know. In fact if we never retained a single painting of his, the letters alone would make him a singular figure in the art world. As the letters testify, he may have struggled to become an accomplished artist, but he was a born wordsmith. Vincent Van Gogh is played by Benedict Cumberbatch and Jamie Parker takes on the role of Vincent's brother, Theo. "Van Gogh: Painted with Words" will offer a unique portrait of the artist told from his own words.
This first-hand account will show that Van Gogh was far from the mad freak as he is so often depicted, but a sophisticated, civilized man right up until his death. "Van Gogh: Painted with Words" is beautifully crafted docudrama. Every word spoken by the actors in this film is sourced from the letters that Van Gogh sent to his younger brother Theo, and of those around him. What emerges is a complex portrait of a sophisticated, civilized and yet tormented man. This is Van Gogh's story in his own words.
