Vincent & Theo
Tim Roth is Vincent and Paul Rhys is Theo, the brothers Van Gogh in Robert Altman's masterful biographical film, Vincent & Theo. Filmed on location in the Netherlands and Paris where Vincent Van Gogh painted many of his works, Vincent & Theo delves inside the mind of the artist, who, while battling his inner demons created some of the greatest works of art the world has seen. Struggling in obscurity and debt, Vincent finds support from his brother Theo, an art gallery owner whose mission it becomes: to announce his brother's genius to the world.
Dispensing with the usual biographical film trappings, iconoclast director Robert Altman (M.A.S.H., The Long Goodbye) with laser sharp focus provides a fresh perspective when viewing the life of an artist through his lens in Vincent & Theo, based on the screenplay by Julian Mitchell.
