Black Orpheus

A reworking of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth, writer, director and star Marcel Camus set this classic tale, (first done on screen in 1950) during the time of Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. A joyous explosion of jubilant color, music and cinematography, the film stars Breno Mello and Marpessa Dawn in the title roles.
