Storyline

A magic potion returns artist Vincent Van Gogh back to life and lands him in the center of the Rose Bowl Parade in this oddball comedy. Of course, no one believes who he is and he is startled to discover his popularity after the passage of time. This sets him off on a crusade to steal his paintings back from collectors and sets a detective on his trail. Along the way, he makes friends with an ambulance chasing attorney and a young artist, who gradually begin to believe his claims of identity. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

A real delight; a crowd pleaser
7 April 2000 | by (Santa Ana, CA) – See all my reviews

This was shown at the Newport Beach Film Festival (April 2000), where it won an Audience Award for Best Feature Film. It's a real delight. Good cinematography and a good story. It's a fantasy/fable in which Van Gogh comes back to life in the present day. When he finds out how much his paintings are worth, he decides to take them back (since he only sold one during his lifetime, the rest are still his) and sell them to raise money for scholarships for art students. Along the way, he runs afoul of art critics and manages to keep one step ahead of the police.
