The trailer for the new Paul Gauguin movie – “Voyage de Tahiti” depicts Gaugin’s 10 years in Tahiti.
The film, ‘“Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti,”’ is director Edouard Deluc’s lushly photographed, on-location film about the painter’s South Seas period, featuring the French actor Vincent Cassel as a grizzled, ailing Gauguin, an artistically driven interpreter of Tahiti and lover of its people. And not one entirely unaware of the conflicted nature of that love … Since his 1903 death in what was then French Polynesia, Gauguin has represented the artist as anti-hero, the man who sacrificed everything for his art.” LATimes.
