[It] offers a superficial interpretation of this complex artist, and does not contribute much to a genuine appreciation and understanding of Gauguin or his times.

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.
