Many know that Vincent Van Gogh cut-off part of his ear. Buy why? When I was told that he did this to himself the night his best friend Paul Gauguin left him I realised there was a story to be told. Van Gogh and Gauguin only lived together for a few weeks, in the Yellow House, from which this film takes its title. This drama, which stars John Simm as Van Gogh and John Lynch as Gauguin, tells the story of those six weeks. This scene is about Gauguin’s arrival to live with Van Gogh and the attraction and tension between the two men is already powerful.
