  Nominated for an Oscar and the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for its musical score, Robert J. Flaherty’s last masterpiece is a visually stunning, lyrical tribute to a land and its people. Flaherty’s poetic vision of nature and the human spirit fills every frame of this amazing film. Through the eyes of a young Cajun boy living on the Bayou, Flaherty tells a story of disruption and change when an oil rig brings industry into his pristine world. Listed on the National Film Registry as a national treasure, Louisiana Story has finally been restored to its original glory.

Comments:

I was quite captivated by this film, but I am also a big fan of atmosphere. The image quality is fantastic. Certainly far superior to Flaherty's "Man of Aran" from almost 15 years before. This transfer has sublime dusted grays, great contrast, visible film grain and is quite sharp. One minor failing is some fluctuation (shimmering) that is noticeable at times. Audio is original, clear and consistent. The extras are fairly full and very worthy for further appreciation of the film. This is a damn good DVD package folks.  out of
