Marcel Camus' film took the art-house world by storm in 1959 with its stunning color photography of the Brazilian Carnival celebration and sultry bossa nova beats. Transplanting the tale of Orpheus and Eurydice to the slums of Rio de Janeiro, this film brings Greek mythology to vivid, frenetic life.
