I went in search of this film and was disappointed to see it was completely out of print.
This is one of the most beautiful productions you may never see. The themes are basic and right out of Greek mythology. The Orpheus myth is one of the most recurring ones in legend and its roots can be seen throughout our culture.
The film echoes the myth: Orpheus loses his one love to fate. To restore her to this earth, he goes to the god(s) and appeals. In this case, he has only an unworldly singing voice to offer as a 'sacrifice' to those gods. They decide upon her, and his, fate...
You can see this played out in the film, with life, death, and resurrection. Meanwhile, the broad vistas of the grand city are seen as the mesmerizing sounds, a blend of Africa, South America, etc. You will remember the music as much as the film itself.
