Gauguin (1950)
Gauguin (1950) - Short Film
Gauguin is a companion piece to Van Gogh, beginning with a self portrait by Gauguin and following his flight from Paris to an island in Oceania (Tahiti). The film adopts the tranquillity and composure of Gauguin's images of Tahitian women. But this evocation of paradise on earth is shifted as Resnais also evokes Gauguin's images of dream and nightmare. (Emma Wilson)
