Starry Starry Night

Starry Starry Night

Directed by Tom Lin, 2011, Taiwan/China, 2:00, Mandarin with English Subtitles

 

Adapted from prized illustrator Jimmy Liao’s work by the same name, Starry Starry Night follows Xiao Mei as she makes the tough transition from her rural childhood home into an impersonal new urban life. She experiences her first love in local problem child Xiao Jie, as the two explore their fractured worlds and create new ones for themselves. This is anything but a typical coming-of-age story, and instead is supplemented and transformed beautifully by the artistic integration of imagination and reality, working to bring Jimmy Liao's work to life. Playful and touching, this film is both visually stunning and emotionally riveting.
