Van Gogh

Dir. Maurice Pialat

France 1991 | Colour | 125 mins | Cert 15

Cast: Jacques Dutronc, Alexandra London

Maurice Pialat’s film deals with the last three months of the painter’s life. It was shot in Auvers-sur-Oise, a small village 30 kilometres outside Paris where van Gogh actually spent the last months before his death in July 1890. Described as a film about creation, love or the absence of love, Pialat’s van Gogh is an ‘ordinary’ man, anguished and neglected. He is also a victim misunderstood, mistreated, unappreciated and unloved, the victim of a philistine age.
