A Different View of the Old South
21 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Louisiana" remains one of my favorite movies about the Old South, and I believe it is as good as "Gone With the Wind," though a bit different. So many films about the Civil War depict the war as the only disappointment or tragedy to befall the characters and ruin their previously "idyllic" lives. Indeed, my own family, who experienced the Civil War in Virginia, handed down from one generation to another a chronic complaint: "The Union army ruined our lives." Actually, of course, my family's unwise choices and lack of judgment and values did the real damage, long after the Civil War was "history." I appreciate the film "Louisiana" because it shows many disappointments and tragedies, besides the war, that adversely impacted the characters and essentially destroyed their dreams and their families. It has been a while since I have seen the film, but I thoroughly enjoyed the performances of Margot Kidder, Lloyd Bochner, and the late Ian Charleson. I also was very much impressed with the costumes, scenery, and soundtrack of the film, and I look forward to finding this mini- series on DVD.
