Orfeu Negro (Brasil 1959)

This movie is a retelling of the "Orpheus and Eurydice" legend enacted by black
performers. This time the setting is the annual Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. Orpheus is a streetcar conductor; Eurydice has just jilted her lover and is attempting to escape his wrath. Orpheus himself falls in love with Eurydice, whereupon her ex-lover, disguised as the Angel of Death shows up and kills Eurydice. To reclaim his
lost love, Orpheus enters "Hell" (the Rio morgue) and uses supernatural
methods to revive the dead girl.
