Orfeu Negro

The Greek myth of Orpheus and his ill-fated love for Eurydice has been updated and set in Rio de Janeiro during Carnival. Its stunning photography captures both the magical spirit of the original legend and the tawdry yet effervescent spirit of Brazil, and its vibrant bossa nova soundtrack is integral to the spirit of the film.
