About the film
This vibrant retelling of the tragic Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice takes place during Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. The film is a winner of the Academy Award for best foreign-language film and Palme d’Or at Cannes. “It is amazingly exciting—sometimes, with the quick voluptuous beat of the music and the mad gusto of the costumed dancers, the pace seems unbearable in its speed and passion” (Boston Globe).
