Critic Reviews for Starry Starry Night
The cumulative effect is more that of a handsomely crafted museum piece than a moving, emotional journey.
Tom Shu-Yu Lin tackles death, divorce, loneliness and first love with the eye of a painter and the heart of a child.
A somewhat clunky family movie about childhood escapism, alternating a little too conveniently between the grim and the adorable.
[Lin] can't make up for the fact that the film wants to say more about the fragility of childhood than it's capable of communicating through its characters and their delicate, perpetually uncertain situations.
A whimsical coming-of-age tale that takes a common theme - growing pains - and transforms it through exquisitely rendered CG effects and a heartfelt storyline.
Swollen with genuine feeling -- an imaginative, emotionally resonant coming-of-age story about two young kindred spirits who seek solace in one another.
Beautifully photographed and tenderly scored, Starry Starry Night is a coming of age story with fantasy elements that appeal to all pre-teens, whatever their culture
Visually beautiful, magic-tinged Taiwanese fantasy-drama about two disenfranchised teenage school kids...a wall-to-wall charmer.
The symbolism is so heavy-handed that the film seems to have anvils for arms
Mei, a teenage girl, retreats to a fantasy world when her parents announce they are divorcing in a drama with touches of magical realism.
