Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti

Critics Consensus

Gaugin: Voyage to Tahiti is beautifully filmed biopic that benefits from a well-chosen lead, but neither are enough to counter the story's surface treatment and narrative drift.

Movie Info

In 1891 Gauguin settles down in Tahiti, where he hopes to find inspiration for his work as an artist and live as a free man in the wild, far from all the moral, political and aesthetic codes of civilized Europe. In the jungle, he faces loneliness, poverty and disease, and he meets Tehura. She eventually becomes his wife and the main subject of his greatest paintings.

Critic Reviews for Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (14) | Rotten (21)

  • The film is too brief to be revelatory and is not the virtual museum experience it appears to aspire to, but does serve as a strong introduction to the artist for the uninitiated and offers a deeper dive into Gauguin's portraiture.

    January 20, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Deluc and his three cowriters acknowledge the postcolonial thorniness of the situation, yet they fail to explore it.

    September 25, 2018 | Full Review…
  • This is a movie about Gauguin that, in the end, is less about his artistry than his ravenous sensibility, his desire to break through to a new way of seeing.

    July 13, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • The film has beautiful cinematography and occasional peaks of high drama, but lacks the kind of significant tempo necessary to sustain enough interest for nearly two hours to keep a viewer focused.

  • Cassel's Gauguin [is] both menacing and pitiable enough to make Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti riveting on a moment-to-moment basis.

    July 11, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The film is beautiful in spots, and features a believably tormented performance by Vincent Cassel as Gauguin, but unfortunately it has only a hazy idea of what it wants to be about.
