  5. the prince's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    A breeze of fresh air, sexy and sensuality - great classical story transferred to Brazil during Carnival, great music . . .

  8. steveoh's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    Proto Costa third act?

  9. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    A retelling of the classic myth of Orpheus, only... you know... black. Vibrant and colorful, and surprisingly heart wrenching at times. It's a gorgeous and aching ballad of music and imagery, composed into a simple yet striking folk legend greek myth about love and loss.

  10. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    The score is phenomenal. The two leading actors are beauteous. Everything else sucks. One of the most overrated films since Kinugasa's "Gate of Hell."

  11. Summer Buck's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    Beautiful film, beautiful music. Makes me happy to watch people enjoying life with such vibrancy. My favorite Greek myth brought to life in a completely different way than i could ever expect.

  12. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    Film musical franco-italo-brésilien de Marcel Camus sorti en 1959. Il est adapté d'une pièce de Vinícius de Moraes, Orfeu da Conceição. Le film a reçu la Palme d'or au Festival de Cannes de la même année.

  15. Ulrich JARLØV's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    Tedious. And the constant, insistent samba music made me wanna slit my wrists... okay, that's a little much. But it did give me a fucking headache!

  16. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    Really mostly redeems itself on its production quality and its theme about life (with 'Orpheus' as a metaphor for the prime of one's life, while the carnival is the metaphor for life, itself). Otherwise, can't really hold a candle to its predecessor (the Jean Cocteau version). That the relationship between Orpheus and Eurydice is fast and fleeting makes sense for the theme. But resultantly, it hasn't any weight.

  17. Caillouquiroule's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    Un film magnifique aussi bien musicalement que visuellement. La transposition du mythe d'Orphée dans cet univers là marche bien mais est un peu schématique malgré quelques bonnes idées (comme le superbe "étage des disparus").

  18. João Valadão's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    "Você pode fazer o sol se levantar amanhã?"

  19. Gabriel Sica's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    "Somos todos pobres, e a única palavra a dizer depois é uma palavra de pobre: obrigado."

  20. Matteo Caranta's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    Le mythe du poète allié à la Bossa Nova et à la Samba. si beau

  21. Axel's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    Fidèle au mythe d'Orphée, le personnage principal c'est la musique, rehaussée des couleurs et de l'accent chatoyants du Brésil. La complainte mélancolique d'Orphée tranche avec la musique endiablée du carnaval. La transposition du mythe dans un autre continent, une autre culture, à une autre époque, montre son universalité. La présence des enfants rappelle sa vocation à se perpétrer. Une palme d'or bien méritée!

  22. Dam Go's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    Merveilleux film que je ne me lasse pas de voir et de revoir. Et puis petite précision qui a son importance: dans le résumé du film il ne s'agit pas d'Albert Camus mais de Marcel Camus!

  23. azoulay's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    L'oeuvre se laisse envahir par la musique, par la danse et par les couleurs du Brésil et l' on frissonne devant tant de liberté, d'amour et de passion . L'oeuvre palpite de beauté, beauté de Rio, beauté des acteurs, beauté perdue du carnaval. Le mythe d'Orphée et d'Eurydice trouve naturellement sa place dans cette beauté et aussi dans cette douleur du monde. Absolu chef d'oeuvre

  24. El Biffo's rating of the film Black Orpheus

    Very beautiful visually and musically but this is more of a document of Carnival in Rio than a retelling of the Orpheus myth, which is used primarily as a vehicle to move the film along, and tie it down at the end. Ultimately, the tragedy of the Greek myth is minimized to emphasize the joy of music and life.
