Louisiana Movies: The Big Easy

From: IMDb

MovieThe Big Easy

Provenance:   Filmed in New Orleans, Louisiana. A police-and-corruption plot, where Louisiana is also a supporting character, with the actors' lush accents, the regional music, and the New Orleans sets.

It's possible it was The Big Easy, when I saw it many years ago, that first planted a seed about my future in Louisiana.

I love the scene at Remy's family home, with the music on the front porch, the dancing, the food, and the waterfront adjacent:

Beausoleil, a renowned cajun band, played in the movie 30+ years ago:

Watching it again here in Lafayette, the movie still holds up for its fun, its sexiness, its musicality, its cajun flavor.

Recommend? Even though it's over 30 years old, yes.
