Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti

"Vincent Cassel, one of France's singular talents, delivers an absorbing performance, committing to his role on both mental and physical levels. A fascinating period in Gauguin's life to explore." - Film Journal International

“Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti is an immersive, strikingly shot, wisely telescoped look at the years — 1891 to 1893 — in which famed post-Impressionist painter Paul Gauguin escaped the artistic and financial struggles of his Paris life for the jungles of French Polynesia, where he would create some of his most pivotal artwork.

“Directed by Edouard Deluc, from a script he wrote with Etienne Comar, Thomas Lilti and Sarah Kaminsky, based on Gauguin’s travel diary Noa Noa, the film produces a highly compelling central character.
“This is also due, in no small part, to a persuasive, vanity-free, often soulful portrayal by versatile French actor Vincent Cassel who seems to channel the artist with a kind of preternatural affinity.

“Deluc and company begin Gauguin’s story as he leaves behind France — and his Danish wife, Mette (Pernille Bergendorff), and their five children — for the perceived physical freedom and artistic inspiration he’ll find in Tahiti.

“Pierre Cottereau’s evocative lighting and cinematography, a haunting, string-heavy score by Warren Ellis and deft production design by Emmanuelle Cuillery round out this transporting portrait.” - The LA Times
