My daughter was telling me about a film she had seen called 'Loving Vincent'. It is about the life of the artist Vincent van Gogh and is presented almost like a detective story with various people who knew him trying to work out why he killed himself. Far from being morbid it is poignant but magical, as all the characters are costumed and made up to resemble those in his paintings, and all the backdrops and locations are handpainted by a team of artists to replicate the paintings themselves. It is as though his paintings have come to life.
If you, like me, enjoy Vincent van Gogh's work, you can find this film on Netflix. I thought it was amazing, and quite beautiful - I have never seen anything like it and was spellbound. It was made by a Polish film company and I hope they will be recognised for their skill and imagination.
