Orfeu Movie Review

Like 1959's Black Orpheus (Orfeu Negro), 1999's Orfeu tells us of another musician named Orfeu and his beloved Euridice in Rio de Janiero on the eve of Carnival. It's a familiar remake -- only the mysterious Death/Hades has been replaced by a jealous local thug, who ends up capturing our hero's girlfriend. Oddly, Rio still looks the same 40 years later, and still they haven't managed to make this retelling of the Greek myth any more worth watching.
