Excellent film!
28 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Everyone should watch this film - young and old. If you want to really understand the history behind the HBO Treme series, you should see this film. You can see where David Simon and Eric Overmyer got their ideas and inspiration. They use the same old home movie shots this documentary uses and the family photos for the end credits are very much the same as HBOs opening sequence with the same John Boutte song. This is an inspiring film. I see why they wanted to emulate it so much. The history is eye-opening. I didn't know half that stuff and I thought I new my American history. I liked the re-enactments, the characters are real and moving. Glen David Andrews and the carpenter are my favorite characters. Wynton Marsalis' interview is really good, too. Go Treme.
