I just finished watching the Oscars and I'm glad I taped them so that I could skip through passages which meant nothing to me. It looks as many of them have excellent special effects, but I doubt I'll see them. There's just something too slick, too perfect about them (based on the excerpts I saw). I still prefer simple films and simple stories like Black Orpheus.
I chose it for this evening's overnight for two reasons. One is that it's a beautiful film. Two that it takes place during the carnival in Rio. Netflix, unfortunately, does not stream it, but it is available from them on DVD.
Black Orpheus (Portuguese: Orfeu Negro)
is a 1959 film made in Brazil by French director Marcel Camus. It is based on the play Orfeu da Conceição (pt) by Vinicius de Moraes, which is an adaptation of the Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice, set in the modern context of a favela in Rio de Janeiro during Carnaval. The film was an international co-production between production companies in Brazil, France and Italy.
The above is from the Wiki where you can read more about the film.
