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.

Top Critic

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.

Immersive, strikingly shot, wisely telescoped...
