Dir. Marcel Camus
France-Italy-Brazil 1958 | Colour | 107 mins | Cert PG | Drama
Cast: Breno Mello, Marpessa Dawn
In recreating the Orpheus legend in Rio de Janeiro with an all-black cast, Camus celebrates both the universality of the story and the exoticism and poetry of Brazil. Here the doomed lovers weave their way through a carnival-mad Rio, amidst the relentless onslaught of colour, noise, and frenetic movement which climaxes in the visual splendour of the poignant ending.
