Storyline

A diverse group of New Orleans artists and musicians struggle to find meaning in their lives, work, and relationships one year after Katrina. A nuanced view of the city and its people, it shows the changing landscape of New Orleans as it has never been seen before, dispelling the stereotypes of Bourbon Street and Twenties' jazz to reveal the tragic, defiant, joyful city many call 'the Soul of America.'

Down to earth and hilarious!
8 February 2012 | by il_min_ahnSee all my reviews

Funny, touching, and real. Flood Streets is about life as we know it. Maybe its because Joseph Meissner and Hellen Krieger first handedly experienced Katrina and its after effects, but Flood Streets really brought to life the characters who frantically try to take back their lives after the hurricane.

What I liked most about the movie is that it showed the side of New Orleans that news channels and non-profit organizations didn't show—the uncertainty of one's identity after the storm took everything away. While everyone else was focused on rebuilding homes and paving streets, the movie focuses on the more tender subject of rebuilding and paving one's daily life. Even for an outsider like me, the movie relays the concerns, struggles, and inner battles of the protagonists clearly.

But even while feeling these volatile emotions, I was laughing out loud. Being funny and dramatic is not hard, but to do it free of clichés is nearly impossible, and the couple pulled it off better than I could ask for. The movie has just the right amount of spice and emotion. Mesmerizing movie.
