When I first met Louis, I saw him set the leg of a boy who had fallen out of a tree. And I thought to myself, "Here is a man who can fix things. He's a healer, he'll take care of me." So I leave my family, and I move to this swamp, and I find out he's just a man.
Mozelle Batiste Delacroix:
We're two of a kind, my brother and I. One day, he'll open his eyes and see that what he's been looking for is right in front of him. Then he'll stop looking for what he already has.
But what if it's too late?

Another fantastic film that didn't get the recognition :-(
I came across eve's bayou at the video store and decided to give it a shot. I am so glad I did. It is one of my favorite films. The story is outstanding and the acting has got to be some of best acting I have ever seen. Its a shame that there aren't enough quality roles for black actors because there are some fantastic black actors and actresses out there. I like to think I can recognize talent when I see it and the performances in this film were nothing short of top notch. I immediately went out a bought this movie after I had rented it because it was just that good. The voodoo/cajun/french/bayou vibe was cool and I think thats what attracted me to it to begin with when I rented it. Just wanted to share that with you folks and let you know that I would highly recommend this film.
