The wind has gone....
10 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

"Louisiana " is not considered a successful movie by the talented Philippe de Broca abetted by a talented actress ,Margot Kidder.Unfortunately,as a French critic noticed when the movie was released,the make-up man "forgot to make his heroine look older as the years pass ;he realized it ten minutes before the end and then worked ten times hard."

It was intended to match the scale (and commercial success) of GWTW,featuring a broke heiress with a Tara without red earth named Bagatelle .She gets married but her family life will be even sadder than Scarlett's.

As it was usual in France and in Italy in the early eighties ,there were two versions: the "short" (3 hours+) one in the theaters and the long (God preserve us) one on TV.

Watch GWTW for the umpteenth time instead.
