In a story depicted in oil painted animation, a young man comes to the last hometown of painter Vincent van Gogh to deliver the troubled artist's final letter and ends up investigating his final days there.
I'm sorry I must have missed something while I was dozing off.
While the performances of the actors were really good and the whole design of the picture went well for me, I saw a big hole int he plot I can not ignore.
Colin Farrell plays a heart surgery (cool opening scene of his character doing open heart surgery) whose being black mailed by a kid whose dad died on his operating table. How this kid was able to hold such a huge price that he felt was owed cause of his father's death I never fully understood.
Feel the movie thought too much of itself. Looks like the director who also director the Lobster with Colin Farrell got too big for his bridges.
