I learned so much about the Cajun culture - about their passions and beliefs
The story is brilliantly written by Jace Johnson
It's a study of amazing characters, all totally believable, all totally real.
The acting by EVERYONE was superb
The "fornication" scene is one of the funniest and most well written pieces of dialog I have heard in a long time
The scenery was breathtaking
As was the film itself
No wonder Little Chenier won 15 major film festival awards
Including 9 Best Picture awards
An absolute joy and pleasure to watch over and over again
The Blu looks incredible for the scenery and vegetation captures. Every time a boat goes through the water channels everything looks so flawless. No special features are included and the sound was mixed down to 2.0. The DVD is worth the purchase for local fans though.
The story is quite simple yet manages to convey a sense of importance for the players involved. A tale of love, betrayal, tragic death and intertwined stories while the simple life passes by in the Cajun country. Two brothers ebb their existence by selling fish bait from their small dock, whilst being watched by the local sheriff for crimes they may or may not have committed. Their best friend, played by Clifton Collins (who is awesome in Dirty - a must see for fans of his) adds the slightly comedic element and semi-protector of the group. Lines are crossed, beautiful topography imagery is interlaced, and locals get their 15 minutes. Performances are forced and the accents slip quite often, but the background is what holds it together.
If you live outside the filming area, this film would still be worth the watch just for the scenery. The DVD has a few deleted scenes and a drastically different alternate ending. Another selling point would have to be the music options. They have transferable songs from the DVD and extra cuts from other artists for download to your computer.Read more ›
