This star-studded biographical drama directed by AcademyAward Nominee Julian Schnabel (The Diving Bell and theButterfly) paints a loving picture of the life and tribulationsof Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh.Vincent (Willem Dafoe) has a vision to create the images thathe sees in his mind and to make his unique and colorful perceptionof the world visible. But aside from his brother Theo(Rupert Friend) who, throughout Vincent’s life, supports himfinancially and unconditionally, Vincent experiences nothingbut derision for his art. Even a brief but intense collaborationwith French painter Paul Gauguin (Oscar Isaac) failsmiserably.The movie, composed of stunning shots that are like VanGogh’s paintings springing to life, dives deep into the painand loneliness brought on by his inability to connect with thepeople around him and the determination some call “madness”that compelled van Gogh to push through nonethelessand keep on painting.With an introduction by Rolf LuchsEintritt: € 8 | 7,50 Schüler, Studierende, Senioren (ab 65) | 7 CSHMitglieder& Inhaber der CineCard (ggf. zzgl.
