Vincent Van Gogh: Painted with Words – imagine… 10 January 2022: Monday on BBC Four


Drama-documentary presented by Alan Yentob, with Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role as Van Gogh.

Every word spoken by the actors in this film is sourced from the letters that Van Gogh sent to his younger brother Theo, and of those around him. What emerges is a complex portrait of a sophisticated, civilised and yet tormented man.

The film won a Rockie for Best Arts Documentary at the Banff World Media Festival in 2011, receiving critical acclaim for its fascinating insight into the life of the artist and its unique approach to storytelling.

    Congratulations to the BBC4, Alan Yentob and all those who contributed to Vincent Van Goff ‘In His Own Words’. Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance beautifully underplayed and as a result so very moving. I cried when viewing his work at an exhibition at The Musee Dorsay and I cried again last night.
