According to its genre, the film "In a Souther Town" is a comedy, or rather tragicomedy of morals and manners. It's important to understand it properly in order not to notice only exotics instead of the exactly shown reality; not to find gloominess instead of humorous, occsionally tough perception, sober rumination. Also the film is credited - with the very definite, morale, ideologial position.
