"Loving Vincent"

This is an interesting movie. 
Loving Vincent is a 2017 experimental animated biographical drama film about the life of painter Vincent van Gogh, and in particular, the circumstances of his death. It is the first fully painted animated feature film.

Each of the film's 65,000 frames is an oil painting on canvas, using the same technique as Van Gogh, created by a team of over 100 painters. The film premiered at the 2017 Annecy International Animated Film Festival. It won Best Animated Feature Film Award at the 30th European Film Awards in Berlin and was nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 90th Academy Awards.  
The painting-on-glass technique employed for Loving Vincent reminded me of The Old Man and the Sea (1999) - embedded full-length here (plus a "making of" video):

  1. I thought the "gimmick" would tire quickly, but it serves the plot line well in holding one's interest...
