On the same year Cannes, Sundance, and Hollywood are kneeling before the fireworks of Beasts of the Southern Wild, and Treme is refining his formula for post-Katrina choral drama, what are the survival chances for a fragile but magic-filled film such as Tchoupitoulas? An immediate response would be to say that’s the reason why we have film festivals, to discover and shed some light on these types of films.

Three brothers, aged between infancy and adolescence, accidentally set out on a night ride through the streets of New Orleans. Until the first morning ferry ships out, they will get to see a world of street musicians, burlesque shows, and strip joints…Starting out from this simple premise, the Ross brothers are capable of taking the spectator along in this journey of initiation in only eighty minutes, remarkably capturing a tempo that’s immediate and at the same time oneiric, and creating a dreamy story where we can see references of Mark Twain and J.M. Barrie. FG
