New US Trailer for 'Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti' Starring Vincent Cassel
"I feel alive again." Cohen Media Group has released an official US trailer for the film Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti, originally known as just Gauguin in its released in Europe last year. The film is finally hitting limited US theaters this summer. Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti stars Vincent Cassel as famous French artist Paul Gauguin, a painter who decided to leave behind his wife and child and civilized life to travel out to Tahiti in 1891. The film is about his decision to go to Tahiti and his romance and connection with a young Tahitian girl named Tehura, played by Tuheï Adams. The cast includes Malik Zidi, Pua-Taï Hikutini, Pernille Bergendorff, Marc Barbé, Paul Jeanson, Cédric Eeckhout, and Samuel Jouy. This looks quite good, with a compelling performance by Cassel as the inspired painter. I would really like to see this.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Edouard Deluc's Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti, from YouTube:
French artist Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was an innovator of modern art, known for experimenting with bold color and distorted proportions, along with his contemporaries Vincent van Gogh and Paul Cézanne. By 1891, Gauguin was already well-known in artistic circles, but had grown tired of the civilized world and its political and moral conventions. Leaving his wife and children behind, he ventures alone to Tahiti, consumed with a yearning for new inspiration. Pushing deep into the Tahitian jungle, Gauguin meets Tehura, his muse, who will consume his mind and inspire his most iconic works of art. Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti is directed by French filmmaker Edouard Deluc, of only the film Mariage à Mendoza previously and a few short films. The screenplay is written by Edouard Deluc & Etienne Comar & Thomas Lilti & Sarah Kaminsky; based on the book "Noa Noa, Voyage de Tahiti" written by Paul Gauguin. Cohen Media Group will release Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti in select theaters starting July 11th this summer. Who's interested?

I knew from before that this was an interesting and daring life. I was never much interested in it, although I respect his choices even if I'm not sure should I respect them all. But, if nothing else, this looks like a good gig for Vincent Cassel ...

I did read your post and I am thankful for your insight on Gauguin Bo. Well, what I meant is that at some point (and please, don't take literally my word for it as being something totally true, because it was a long time ago) in my life, some thirty years ago, I read something about his sexual desire for young, underaged girls which made me wish to make some more research about it since I didn't like it and I wanted to know the truth behind it. Something about his view about the artists and their search for inspiration and relaxation in sex with underaged ones. That might be a total hoax and please, correct me on this if I am wrong (and I have a strong feeling about being so, especially after reading your post) since I never had enough time to look more into it. Other than that, it all looks good and interesting here. I might check this out in that respect ... One more time, don't get angry with my post, I'm just saying what I knew about Gauguin from before and I think you're probably more right about him... Peace, again?

Very good answer from you on this subject, Bo. Indeed, this is what I absolutely agree with. But no, I don't exclusively insist on that, what I wrote about Gauguin and young girls, whether it was true or not. I just wasn't really interested in him in that period of time when I came across him and his art. The rest of my interest for him was related to my other interests then and Gauguin was not that too often. Of course, this film is just more like a reminder and something to think about the artists and about their relation to life and art itself. And I might plan to see this film with the same interest as you ... Cheers Bo ...
