Black Orpheus/Orfeu Negro

For anyone interested in Brazilian culture, Black Orpheus, the 1959 Academy Award winning film by Marcel Camus, is a must see. The beauty of Rio de Janeiro during Carnaval is evident throughout the film. Antonio Carlos Jobim (The Girl From Ipanema), Brazil’s well-known samba composer produced the soundtrack. I have the soundtrack on my Ipod and listen to it whenever I fly to Rio.

Enjoy the movie:
