"The Potato Eaters" by Vincent van Gogh
30 June 2018 | by jojokyraSee all my reviews

Sometimes I watch drama to feel "thrust out from the depths." This is not a drama. This is in a way real and I didnt want to relate.

It is like this poor soul that I pass on the street and I didn't want to see again.

I can not actually like any of this characters. It is close to the ugly true. It is unpleasant to watch. The poverty smells very bad. I cant really accept even the metaphorical beginning as such.

It is skillfully shot. Light, composition - it is like a painting. A painting by Vincent van Gogh. It have the same dull colors as "The Potato Eaters". But except any presence of God.

My rating didn't matter. "I dint like it" doesn't mean nothing. The consummation term "rating" cant apply to this movie.
