“Sunflowers,” is an extraordinary documentary and intricate portrait of Vincent van Gogh’s iconic series of paintings.
“Sunflowers” focuses on the exhibit of five of the 11 famous still-life paintings at Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum, drawn from London, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Munich, and Philadelphia museums. From the perspective of a series of experts, including museum directors and art historians, it views these paintings in close detail, reinforced by excerpts from van Gogh’s letters. The actor Jamie de Courcey portrays van Gogh. The fragile nature of the five sunflower paintings makes it unlikely that they will ever be exhibited together again. Because of its close and spectacular visual attention to the paintings and its extensive analysis of them, “Sunflowers” ranks among the finest films about van Gogh and his work. [2020, Netherlands, 85 min, Rated: NR].
