Early tickets to the screenings of “Loving Vincent” – the world’s first fully painted film about the Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh – are now available at a number of cinema theaters in Vietnam.
The film will be screened at 26 theaters in six cities of Hanoi, Nghe An, Nha Trang, Da Lat, Bien Hoa and HCM City from October 6, according to its distributor MVP Pictures.
Update: The film will also be screened in the two cities of Thai Nguyen and Thanh Hoa.
Vietnam is among the first three countries in the world, besides Poland and Canada, to screen “Loving Vincent”.
Written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman and taking six years to complete, “Loving Vincent” brings the paintings of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story.
Every one of the 65,000 frames of the film is an oil-painting hand-painted by 125 professional painters, who travelled from all across the world to the Loving Vincent studios in Poland and Greece to be part of the production.
The film was first shot as a live action film with actors, and then hand-painted over frame-by-frame in oils.
Set in France in the summer of 1891, it follows the journey of Armand Roulin, a young man given a letter by his father to hand-deliver to Theo van Gogh, Vincent’s brother, in Paris. Here, after hearing the life story of Vincent, Armand sets out to find the answer to the reason for the artist’s death, and travels to the quiet village of Auvers-sur-Oise, where Vincent spent the last years of his life.
The film will be available in Vietnam at theaters of the following cinema chains: Lotte, Platinum, BHD, CGV, Beta, Cinestar, NCC
