Portuguese adaptation of the story of a streetcar conductor who falls in love with a woman on the run in Rio de Janeiro during Carnival. Winner of Best Foreign Film Oscar!
Winner of both the Academy Award for best foreign-language film and the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or, Marcel Camus’ Black Orpheus brings the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice to the twentieth-century madness of Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro.
Opening credits, with a nifty effect, in the mountain slums outside Rio, with Carlos Antonio Jobim performing his A Felicidate (composed with Luis Bonfa), from Marcel Camus' international hit Black Orpheus, 1959.
Country girl Eurydice (Marpessa Dawn, born in Pittsburgh, PA!) arrives in Rio before Carnival, met by blind Zeca (Aurino Cassanio) and takes in weird sights, early in Marcel Camus' Black Orpheus, 1959.
