The scene where the shooting is taking place outside the bar was in fact a real bar from the 1970's through the early 90's. This building is in St.Martin parish, 3 miles south of St.Martinville on HWY 347. Cock fighting was a big attraction there until the bar was closed a few years before cockfighting was banned in Louisiana. The building is abandoned now. See more »

The film was taken away from its director, Bertrand Tavernier, in post-production, the producers preparing the edit of the film that was released in North America and the UK (running at 104 minutes).

This version of the film has been released widely in Europe, and is available on DVD (in an English-friendly version) in France and the Benelux countries. See more »

only thing missin is the gumbo
how for the life of me that this movie only rated a 6.1 on IMDb is beyond me. OK, 6.1 would mean its a pretty decent movie but this movie is better then that. the 102 minutes of this movie passed by in a breeze it seems. the movie was so good i didn't want it to end. the portrayal of the bayou and its people were dead on. tommy lee doesn't do bad acting, he puts his all into every role, occasionally he just winds up in a bad movie but it wouldn't be his fault.
for you people out there who like a good murder mystery movie, here's one of the better ones. this movie was paced perfectly, not to slow or fast, the dialogue was great and u felt like u were in the bayou. there wasn't one bad actor in this movie, everybody did a bang up job. i just wish movies like just would just get its fair shot instead of going straight to DVD. there's so many crappy movies out there that have a higher rating then this one..., what a joke. people out there if u see this review, plz...plz give this movie a chance, u wouldn't regret it.
