He's always

out for trouble, that one.

That's for my father.

Shows over.

What's going on here then?


Was that young

Armand I saw you fighting with?

Aye sir.

Over what?

Over crazy red, that

painter guy he used to know.


He dropped that, sir.

I'll take it in.

At ease, soldier.

Causing trouble again I see.

You dropped your letter outside.

It's not my letter.

It's Vincent's.

It's to Theo Van Gogh.

That's Vincent's

brother, isn't it?

Yeah, Vincent left it behind.

His old landlord Geno was

having a clear out and found it.

So he gave it to my

father and father told me

I have to deliver it.

Like it's my business.

My job is to bash metal into

shape not Deliver letters.

Help yourself why don't you?

Well he doesn't

need it, does he?

I don't see the point in

delivering a dead man's letter.

Your father just wants

to pay his respects.

What for?

What did that nobody

ever do for us?

Making my family hated

when my old man refused

to sign that petition.

To throw him out of the town-

- I signed it.

And, that's well and

good, he was mad.

He wasn't.

He was an interesting man.

Things only got strange

when that friend of his

Gauguin cams.

Vincent was all enthusiastic

for his yellow house

to become this

hostel for painters.

And, Gauguin would

be the master.

Where's the chair'?

Yeah, perfect.

But, when he finally came,

they quickly went from

firm friends to being

at each other's throats.

No, no, no you can't Go.

No, you can't got.

Calm down, Vincent.


Hello Vincent.

I brought you a gift.

Have you been fighting?

Take good care of it.

Oh sweet.

Are you alright?

Interesting man?

That's not how I remember him.

That nutcase has

cut off his ear.

Your dad sewing

it back on is he?

No, he's helping.

Well that figures

one drunk and crazy

helping another.

Go on say it!

Say it again.

The trial's next week.

Did not

think there were any left

not after him losing.

Oh they're

back, crawling back in.


gents, have you seen my son?

Ah Mr. Roulin, yes

you'll find him inside.

He's meant to

be on a train to Paris.

He don't look like

he's planning on going anywhere

right now.

We'll soon see about that.

He's in trouble.

The boy looks for


Evening Joseph.

Why can't You just post it?

I did, the letter

got returned as undeliverable.

Well if your postal

service can't find him,

what makes you think I can?

Just use your initiative son.

An important man like

Mr. Theo Van Gogh

ask around.

But, what do I

say when I find him?

It's customary to start

with I'm sorry for your loss.

Let's got You sobered up.

I can't Go it's too late.

It's a nice night.

You're lo convey

deepest condolences

from myself, your

mother, and your brother.

Oh, and don't forget

Little Marcel.

She was his friend too.

She was 10 months old.

Babes are like animals son.

They can know the heart of a

man just by the size of 'em.

No, they can't.

They're less fickle

than grown-ups.

Just look at Geno.

He takes Vincent's money

with a smile for a whole year

and then signs a

petition condemning him.

Hey, mind you say that

Geno had the letter

for two years.

I don't want Mr. Theo thinking

that we been sitting on it.

Tell him how Geno

didn't even bother

handing it over to

me until he heard

that Vincent had.

Killed himself?

Why do you find that

so hard to believe?

You saw what happened here.

He had a breakdown.

It Happens to people.

If they're weak.

Live longer, you'll see.

Life can even bring

down the strong.

After the ear, nobody would

even give him a chance.
