Van Gogh - Painted With Words
- 1 hr 20 min
Van Gogh is played by Benedict Cumberbatch, (Star of the Imitation Game and TV lead roles in Sherlock and Parade s End) and Jamie Parker takes on the role of Vincent's brother, Theo. Vincent 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, civilised man right up until his death. Vincent Van Gogh Painted with Words is beautifully crafted piece. 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, civilised and yet tormented man. This is Van Gogh's story in his own words. Narrated by Alan Yentob.
