A film by MARCEL CAMUS
Original music by Luiz Bonfá, Antonio Carlos Jobim
Academy Award® and Palm DOr winner
Inspired The Guardian
Making a huge impact on its release, Marcel Camus Oscar®, Golden Globe and Palm DOr winning film retells the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice against the vibrant backdrop of the Rio carnival. The infectious soundtrack by Antonio Carlo Jobim and Luiz Bonfá is credited with bringing the bossa nova sound to a world-wide audience and in this new transfer, featuring the extended version of the film, full justice is done to the glorious colour photography.
Black Orpheus remains as fresh and intoxicating today as it was when it thrilled audiences at the 1959 Cannes Film Festival.
