1891. Gauguin has exiled himself to Tahiti. He wants to rediscover his painting, as a free, wild man, far from the moral, political, and aesthetic codes of civilized Europe. He goes ever deeping into the jungle, coping with solitude, poverty, and sickness. Here he’ll encounter Tehura, who will become his wife, and the subject of his greatest paintings.
A fascinating period in Gauguin’s life to explore, and couple that with the remarkable lead performance by Cassel, and you’re left with a biopic that’s most definitely worth catching.
The impressively lyrical score by Australian-French composer Warren Ellis is dominated by warm and dark violin notes that seem to echo Koke’s various moods.
