The very last days of van Gogh in the colorful and warm south of France, when the genius of painting is confronted with the consciousness of death, creative joy and the anguish of life. Best of his paintings was made there. Speaking with director Julian Schnabel words: ‘This is a film about painting and a painter and their relationship to infinity. It is told by a painter. It contains what I felt were essential moments in his life, this is not the official history – it’s my version. One that I hope could make you closer to him.’
