Set against the vibrant, manic backdrop of Rio de Janeiro during Carnival, Black Orpheus is a tragic love story retelling the Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice. Winner of the 1960 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, this beautifully photographed movie, with a lively soundtrack that includes the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim, helped popularize bossa nova music in the United States. This tale of star-crossed lovers plays at Symphony Space as part of its Classics in HD screening series. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
“Charming in a way that American romantic comedies have all but forgotten.”—Jeannette Catsoulis, NPR.org
“Insanely romantic.”—Tim Cogshell, KPCC
“While Stölzl is clearly borrowing from other historical flights of fancy, such as Amadeus and_ Cyrano de Bergerac_, along with Shakespeare in Love, the helmer and fellow screenwriters Christoph Mueller and Alexander Dydyna expertly mold these elements to fit the characters and situations’ own requirements, and expertly alternate romance, humor and drama without losing their grip on the characters and their dilemmas.”—Variety
Director Phillip Stölzl (Northface) returns to the very wellspring of Romanticism – Goethe’s autobiographical masterpiece The Sorrows of Young Werther – and conjures up a beguiling and refreshingly innocent period romance.
