I was really rooting for this movie to be good. I am ready for a good biopic about an ancient French painter and I like actor Vincent Cassel because he take bold choices in movies he act in. Unfortunately, this movie is as bland as it come. The script really need a good rewrite to liven up the story telling. Gauguin deserve a much better biopic treatment than this. This movie is a two hours of slow, drawn out non-event with some promising parts here and there. Overall, this is a forgettable biopic that did not live up to the potential of the artist and the actor who potrayed him.
