Black Orpheus is literally what its title suggests: a retelling of the -Orpheus and Eurydice- legend enacted by black performers. This time the setting is the annual Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. Orpheus -Breno Mello- is a streetcar conductor; Eurydice -Marpessa Dawn- has just jilted her lover and is attempting to escape his wrath. Orpheus himself falls in love with Eurydice, whereupon her ex-lover, disguised as the Angel of Death shows up and kills Eurydice. To reclaim his lost love, Orpheus enters -Hell- -the Rio morgue- and uses supernatural methods to revive the dead girl. A multi-award winner on the international film scene, Black Orpheus features a samba musical score by Luiz Bonfa and Antonio Carlos Jobim.
