solid drama with a nice ending
26 June 2008 | by mr-64See all my reviews

well done non-Hollywood movie which seem to be so rare these days.

it is a story about two brothers, one with a mental problem, the other one with a big heart and the will to do anything to protect his handicapped brother.

the scenery is really beautiful and i hope the environment can catch up after the horrible impact of hurricane Katrina.

the portray of the Cajun people and culture was very interesting to watch on screen.

the final scene is excellent and left me speechless for a minute.

i hope this movie does well on DVD, because it deserves it.
