Black Orpheus (Criterion Collection) (1958)
The Greek myth of doomed lovers Orpheus and Eurydice is transferred to contemporary Rio de Janeiro's festive Carnival in Marcel Camus' Oscar-winning film, a lively blend of sight and sound. The fascinatingly translated tale relates the story of a trolley conductor (Breno Mello) who falls in love with a country girl (Marpessa Dawn) only to pursue her resurrection after a freak accident strikes her dead. Camus, Fausto Guerzoni co-star. Uncut version; 107 min. Standard; Soundtracks: Portuguese Dolby Digital mono, English Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English; featurette; interviews; theatrical trailer.
