The Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice is brought vividly to life amidst the spectacle, color, and music of Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival. Free-spirited trolley driver Orfeu falls for the lovely newcomer Eurydice on the eve of Carnival, but their joy is short-lived as they soon find themselves pursued both by Orfeu’s jealous fiancée and by the masked figure of Death. 1959, Rated PG, 107 min. In Portuguese with English subtitles
