Orfeu Negro


Two weeks ago, I was studying Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo opera in my Antiquity to Baroque music history class and by coincidence the singer Imany released her song, “You Will Never Know,” whose video is a take on the 1959 Brazilian film, Orfeu Negro (Black Orpheus). For those who do not know, Orpheus was the Greek story about a half-god and musician who goes to underworld to rescue his wife who died after she was bit by snake.

    1. Hey, what’s up. Yeah, I’ve wanted to see that film so I could review it. I was suppose to go see it yesterday at a college near my school, but I was too tired. Definitely send that link my way. Talk to you later.

    1. Thanks for the links. I heard Medicine for Melancholy was a great movie, but I haven’t seen it entirely, only clips of it. And nice youtube page, there’s a lot videos that catch my interest. I will definitely check it out more during my winter break.
