Van Gogh ★★★ 1992 (R)

“One doesn't produce 100 masterpieces in a state of depression—Van Gogh died from having had a glimpse of happiness.” This is the way director Pialat sums up his ap proach to the last 67 days in the life of Vincent Van Gogh. Dutronc is skillful in portraying Van Gogh as a man with no excuses, and even a sense of humor. Not a psychological portrait and offers no an swers—it's simply one artist's view of an other. In French with English subtitles. 155m/C VHS, DVD . FR Jacques Dutronc, Alexandra London, Gerard Sety, Bernard Le Coq, Corinne Bourdon; D: Maurice Pialat; W: Maurice Pialat; C: Gilles Henry, Emmanuel Machuel; M: Edith Ves perini.
