Rio de Janeiro at carnival time provides the background for this vibrant modern retelling of the Greek myth of Orpheus. Orpheus is a guitar-playing bus driver who meets and falls in love with naive country girl Eurydice. Winner of the Grand Prize at Cannes in 1959, Black Orpheus, with its lively soundtrack, brought the infectious bossa nova beat to the United States.
