Critic Reviews for Orfeu
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.
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.
