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 Classy, Low Budget Entertainment
13 August 2001 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

"Starry Night" is a rather odd piece of work because it is obviously a very low budget film with mediocre acting and no name stars, however, the power in this story is its sincerity, its concept, and its simplicity. While never doubt that this movie is really bad in its performance mostly due to the budget I imagine, somehow the magic of the main character rubs off rest of the cast, and the movie becomes entertaining. Who cares how cheesy it is. I enjoyed the movie. It was entertaining. It had a feel good plot. It had suspense. I would recommend this fantasy because it had elements of truth and well it's too bad more movies don't have the heart that this movie has.
