Black Orpheus | Chicago Reader

Black Orpheus

The myth of Orpheus, retold with black characters and set against the background of the Rio carnival (1959). This sort of thing was considered high art not so long ago; now it seems forced and ponderously symbolic. Marcel Camus directed. In Portuguese with subtitles.
