Very entertaining with beautiful scenes of the Louisiana bayous.
26 February 2003 | by (Houma, Louisiana) – See all my reviews

Loved this movie and found it pleasingly fast paced. Never drags...never a dull scene. I especially liked the performances of Tim Curry as the village priest and Lacey Chabert as Florida Picou. Lacey is absolutely beautiful on the "big screen".

The scenes of south Louisiana are gorgeous with giant oaks draped with moss and beautiful bayous. I found the recreation of a bayou village of the 1940's captivating. As a history buff, I also found the little known story of German U-boats in the Gulf of Mexico fascinating.

I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a well told story with fast action, a mystery, and a romance.
