Orfeu Negro (Black Orpheus) Reviews

An almost irrationally infectious retelling of the Orpheus-Eurydice chestnut set during carnival and feverish with hip-swiveling hustle, exploding local color, and sleeve-worn heart.

This sort of thing was considered high art not so long ago; now it seems forced and ponderously symbolic.

[The film has] swirling color, the excitement of samba and the accessible joy of a fabled city, not to mention a charming Orpheus in the young Brazilian Breno Mello, and a dazzling Eurydice in the American-born dancer and actress Marpessa Dawn.

Pic is somewhat cerebral, being mainly helped by the fresh playing of the cast.

Even when the streamers, confetti, and brass bands aren't there, you can see and hear them.

Swarms of sinuous girls and children shimmy and race to the samba beat, which is insistent through most of the footage. That's what makes the picture alive.
