Movie Info

Orfeu is a famous musician and pop singer, as well as the local King of Carnival. When Orfeu meets beautiful, aloof Euridice he thinks he has found his Queen, even though he is already engaged to marry Mira. Caught up in the festivities surrounding Carnival, Orfeu puts all of his efforts into courting Euridice, who eventually returns his affections. But in the end, the two young lovers are unable to avoid a tragic fate.

Colorful and vibrant, painting its story with bold, operatic strokes.

For this viewer, the attempted marriage of mythic qualities and gritty reality never quite works.

A good soundtrack, colorful and skillfully designed sets, as well as excellent work by cinematographer Affonso Beato make Carlos Diegues' Orfeu a joy for the eyes and ears.

A rambling, romantic tale that is laced with gratuitous violence.

Audience Reviews for Orfeu

The cinematography and cast are great, the movie as such is really a little too arty for my taste. Still worth checking out for fans of Brazilian cinema.
