Orfeu negro

15 yrs 107 minutes 1959 7.5

Orfeu Negro is one of two films that managed to win the Gold Palm in Cannes (1959) and win both an Oscar (1960) and a Golden globe (1960) for Best Foreign Film. In Orfeu Negro, French director Marcel Camus has created a cinematic experience where the mythological love story of Orfeus and Eurydike is placed in the middle of the slum in Rio de Janeiro. He is a lover of life that every woman adore, and she is a shy country girl on the run from a murderous stalker. Their fate is interlaced for a day of ecstatic carnival acid where anything can happen - except the predictable.
