Loved it. Very touching. Regarding any tropes? Use of Art Reenactments? Definitely. Now, I would like to compare this episode with the real life of Van Gogh, but I do not fully know all the details of his life. All in all, I found it an elegant portrayal of a man whom society could not equipped to ease his suffering. However, now that I am thinking about it, I commend them for not using the ear cutting story.
When the movie talks about Van Gogh and posthumous celebrity, I can’t help but wonder. If he lived now, would he have a famous reputation, or just became a outsider artist?
