Authentic and Captivating
7 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is rarely a movie that accurately portrays Louisiana, a feat that "Little Chenier" achieved with charm and respect. The story is one of great love, responsibility, patience, and loyalty with songs that are sure to stir you. And if the music doesn't conjure up any emotions in you, the story certainly will with an ending that has viewers leaving the theater in awe.

I think this was a beautiful story and that the characters were very believable in their roles. The dialect was authentic in conjunction with the captivating scenery. It was able to truly represent many of the areas treasured by southern Louisiana locals. It is great to have these landmarks that were destroyed by Hurricane Rita preserved on film.
