Black Orpheus

Marcel Camus' 1959 classic

"It is an amazing creation."

- Time Magazine
With its magnificent color photography and sublime soundtrack, this film brought the splendor of Rio de Janeiro and Brazil's infectious bossa nova beat to the United States. It retells the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice in a contemporary setting, set against the madness of the Rio carnival. Delirious, unrestrained fun, this is an intriguing slice of classic cinema. Over 18s only. Please note that the film is in French with English subtitles. Running time: 100 minutes.
