A pleasant and sometimes off-the-wall journey through Southern culture, in a local manifestation, is offered in Mississippi Blues by the French co-director Bertrand Tavernier (with American Robert Parrish). A broad spectrum of politics, gospel and blues, literature (native son William Faulkner), religion, and social customs perceived from a foreigner's viewpoint is presented and discussed with interest and warmth in this documentary on the multifaceted South.
