True to Life
20 January 2008 | by cmigues-2See all my reviews

Finally! A movie that portrays Cajuns realistically without fake accents and over-the-top stupidity. This movie shows the soul of the Cajun people and the beauty of the land in which they live.Although the story takes place in the bayous of Louisiana the theme of jealousy is universal and everyone can relate to it no matter where this movie is shown. The music is not your typical "Jolie Blond" french music heard in every Louisiana film. It's french, but beautiful and haunting and helps to unify the film bringing the characters, bayou setting, and music together into one of the best films I've enjoyed in the past months. Bravo!
