oscar winning movie from the 1950`s that turned the world on it`s collective head with it`s look into Carnaval season in Brazil,based on the old tale of Orpheus searching the land of the dead for his beloved...the star here is the music...samba. It permeates literally every centimeter of celluloid here.

actually i saw this movie in one of my classes, i go to an art college so i found the movie to be artistically beautiful, the character, the culture and the scenes are aesthetically pleasing. As for the plot, for it to be re-telling the greek myth of orpheus and eurydice it seemed rather "cheezy" and put together.

I saw this movie in an art house in Boston in 1963. It is the best movie ever made. It doesn't even matter that it's in Portugese.

I guess I'm used to the fast pace of modern movies but it was nice to see a dream-like, fantasty film like this. The carnival colours and amazing samba music were captivating and it was great to see an all-Black cast of beautiful, charismatic people.
