Film History and Meaning : Black Orpheus(1959)

Black Orpheus(1959)

I think Turner Classic Movies should add it to their video collection.

This is a beautiful film adaptation of that culture. The location is perfect for the plot. The actors are dressed to look the best they can considering that time period in history, and their level of income. These black men are made to be gentlemen and non-threatening.

Their dances, the festival and marketplace look authentic. This film is a piece of art!
