New Orleans Mon Amour
Produced by: Voodoo Production Services
A year after Hurricane Katrina a doctor and young woman run into each other years after their love affair. Henry is trying to get back together with his ex-wife and Hyde is trying to start her life anew, but will they be able to resist each other? Very unlikely.
I downloaded this movie from Amazon due to my interest in New Orleans and because I am a fan of Christopher Eccleston. This movie appeared to be small budget, and I wonder if some of the people telling their tales are actual residents. It is a pretty eye-opening movie, showing the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
The acting was all right, though Christopher Eccleston did a really good job. I believe he did this movie because of his love for New Orleans. The camera work could have been a little better.
The story was pretty interesting, about love during chaos. These two characters just wanted to help the society, but hurt those closest to them. It could have been written a little better, as it didn’t quite make sense for the guy Hyde was with and his reaction.
All in all, if you like indie films or a fan of New Orleans or Christopher Eccleston, check it out. I give the film a 3.5/5.
Until next time!
