Eve's Bayou (7-Sep-1997)|
Director: Kasi Lemmons
Writer: Kasi Lemmons
Music: Terence Blanchard
Producers: Caldecot Chubb; Samuel L. Jackson
Keywords: Drama, Voodoo
Eve's father is a small town physician in the Louisiana bayou country with a wife and three children; she catches him in flagrante delicto with one of his patients. Brilliant directorial debut for Kasi Lemmons; this disquieting family drama is among the best films if not the best film of 1997.
Review by anonymous (posted on 25-Mar-2006)
Eve's Bayou was an excellent film
about the descendants of an African American woman and a wealthy
Frenchman in Louisiana. The family in the film consists of an upper
middle class physician, his wife, and their two young daughters. The
cinematography is beautiful and the young girl who plays Eve is equally
beautiful with her pretty "mixed girl-curly wavy hair". Voodoo
spirituality is a major theme in the film. It was refreshing to see an
upper middle class African American family and the beautiful style that
the women had. I am multiracial and I loved this film. It gives insight
into a part of African American history that defies stereotypes. These
characters are beautiful and complex. Excellent film.
