The narrative is built one happy cliche at a time until the story of Katrina ceases to be about appalling environmental neglect, or the colossal failure of the federal government to manage a disaster.
A classic 'before and after' document, terrific images of what was once there, actual footage of the storm itself, moving TV news coverage of the disaster and a conclusion that's more optimistic than it has any right to be.
The smart, classy Hurricane on the Bayou preaches an invaluable environmental lesson for children and parents: Don't monkey with the ecosystem without expecting payback.
Despite its split personality, Hurricane offers more good than bad, including a lively soundtrack featuring Benoit, the Neville Brothers and Fats Domino.
Katrina will end up changing the entire South, from Houston to Florida, for decades to come, yet Bayou still insists on its upbeat gospel ending.
A convincing and entertaining argument for the importance of preserving Louisiana's wetlands.
Hurricane on the Bayou makes its points in a compelling, and moving, manner.
[Features] a knockout soundtrack, some very impressive gators and two irresistible forces: Hurricane Katrina and 14-year-old fiddler and eco-warrior Amanda Shaw.
...amazing footage of Katrina's aftermath...
not simply another 'isn't it tragic' picture of the Gulf Coast, post-Katrina. The movie spends just as much time celebrating the joyous music that has always been a part of New Orleans...
Though some of the images of the aftermath will seem chillingly familiar, there is ample aerial footage of the destruction that carries a deeper impact because of the wide screen.
This is an often-moving film, but its approach to life in post-Katrina Louisiana is hopeful, even celebratory.
