This week's Black in the Days movie is one that I have yet to watch but it's sitting on my coffee table just waiting for me to put it in the dvd player. I'm gonna get to it this weekend. However, wanted to share this film with you all in case you've never heard of it. It's called "Black Orpheus" and is a film from 1959 that...well below is the synopsis.


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 she is being stalked by Death: Eurydice is in danger, pursued through noisy crowds and a morgue. Can Orfeo conduct her to safety? Don't look back.
