Orpheu Negro - The film The director of this movie was Marcel Camus. The idea for it came from the Screenplay "Orfeu da Conceicao", by Vinicius de Morais. It was made in 1959, and received the grand prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Bruno de Mello and Marpessa Dawn were the main actors. This movie provoked the beginning of the "Bossa Nova" movement. The tragedy of Eurydice's ill fated love for Orpheus forms the perfect setting for the romantic melancholy evoked by "Bossa Nova" music.
