I am not sure what to say about Eve’s Bayou; I found it slightly underwhelming. It is a good story, its fantastic elements are well developed and its characters are sufficiently well rounded. Except that, I don’t know why, I found Eve (the character) not entirely convincing (Jurnee Smollett, on the other hand, was very good). The “mirror scenes” are somewhat risky, but I think they work well in the context of the story; one needs to accept them literally, which makes them more interesting than as a mere convention. I would be interesting in hearing opinions about this movie and suggestions on what elements of it I should be paying closer attention to.
