Having some parts of our film set in the night, not only reflected the shadowy and unsettling elements of Vincent’s story, it also fit with the fact that Film Noir was a significant influence on the script development. In many Film Noirs there is a reluctant detective who interviews people who are not necessarily as they appear on the surface. Most of the night-time scenes are either set within a painting that Vincent himself did in the night-time, or they are a direct translation of a daytime painting into night. This is a rare exception, which is instead a clear visual homage to the Film Noir genre.
