In Rio, Orfeo is a trolley conductor and musician, engaged to Mira. During Carnival week, he sees Eurydice, who's fled her village in fear of a stalker; it's love at first sight. Her cousin Sarafina, with whom she stays in Rio, is a friend of Orfeo and Mira, so the star-crossed lovers meet again. Later, during the revels, wearing Sarafina's costume, Eurydice dances a provocative samba with Orfeo. Not only is Mira enraged when her rival is unmasked, but the stalker, dressed as Death, appears: Eurydice is in danger, pursued through noisy crowds and a morgue. Can Orfeo conduct her to safety? Don't look back.

" The Ups: Unique and colorful Brazilian take on the Greek tragedy about Orpehus and Eurydice set during the yearly Carneval in Rio. It is a beautiful movie full of rythmn, samba drums and dance moves that give the film an energy that is not found in so many other films. It must have been a perfect travel commercial for anyone who never had seen photos from Brazil and the location work is gorgeous. The cast ooze sex and coolness. The Downs: The ending feel a little too abrupt compared to the Gr"
