"Black Orpheus" (1959) directed by Marcel Camus compiles stunning color photography of the Brazilian Carnival celebration, and sultry bossa nova beats, winning both an Academy Award and the Palme d'or at Cannes. Exacting the tale of Orpheus, played by Breno Mello, and Eurydice, played by Marpessa Dawn, in the slums of Rio de Janeiro, "Black Orpheus" brings Greek mythology to vivid, frenetic life. As the stories build into the free-for-all climax of Carnival itself, it encompasses life and death, tragedy and comedy, and sensual music that will linger on.
