Editorial Reviews

Kiefer Sutherland ("24") and Nastassja Kinski star in this stirring, gorgeous, epic film about the renowned painter Paul Gauguin. Dissatisfied with his work as a highly successful stockbroker in Paris, Gauguin gives up his lucrative job to further his self-taught painting skills. But as his dreams to revolutionize the art world lead him and his family into a downward spiral of financial ruin, Gauguin discovers that he must travel to a new, strange world in the South Seas to rekindle the passion to create his masterpieces.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gaugain June 29, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What can I say? Keifer did a great job portraying Paul Gaugain. If you are an artist you'll love it. If not you'll probably walk away not getting it. Great movie to learn more about the artist!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Bio-Pic About A Great Artist August 9, 2007
Format:DVD
I am a big fan of Kiefer and I always wonder why he's in (usually) crappy movies. This is a nice change of pace for him since his character doesn't carry a gun or work for the government. Everything is well done in this move, the settings are great and the acting is done well. It would have been nice to have some extras on this DVD, but I guess somebody was too cheap for that. Oh well. Still a good movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Moderate Paradise Found May 7, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Led by an excellent performance by Nastassja Kinski and a usual performance by Keifer Sutherland, Paradise Found is the story of Paul Gauguin, a stockbroker that became what we now know as a celebrated impressionist artist.

The movie moves between episodes of his well-to-do family life as a stockbroker, as a starving artist seperated from his wife and childern and as a crazed White artist on a South Seas island with his native girl lover. It's these South Seas scenes that are the most annoying, but where Gauguin paints what is now some of his most celebrated work.

The best scenes in the movie, however, are with Miss Kinski. She shines as Mrs. Gaugin through various emotions, settings of rich and poor, as a travailed, but loving wife and mother. Get the movie for her performance. This is definately one of her best, even if her screen time is not as much as it was in, say, Cat People.

I've been teaching film for a decade, and it's rare to find a film that I find completely lamentable, but the wrongfully named Paradise Found is one of those films that suffers on every level. I won't go in to a lot of details, but the gross historical inaccuracies perpetrated on the filmgoer is enough to make one apoplectic with rage. Gauguin's real life was interesting enough without trying to completely recast him in what amounts to a romantic picture. I would really prefer to give this film zero stars, but alas, that is not an option. I really wonder what was going through the heads of the producers and writer, and even director, of this picture. It is complete and utter dreck. The other pictures that exist about Gauguin are far more interesting and far more historically accurate.

I loved this movie. It was well done. Kiefer Sutherland's acting is as always outstanding. It's a beautifully done movie. The location scenes are breath taking.

I found this movie while researching the life of Paul Gauguin - evidently something not a single person involved in the production thought to do. Read more

As an artist, I'm often frustrated by the way artists are romanticized in movies. Few films actually manage to get it right. This isn't one of them. Read more

Nice to see Kiefer in other parts than Jack Bauer. It shows once again what a great actor he is. I think people would enjoy this movie. Paradise is out there.
