Watched the DVD of Orfeu Negro (1959). This is a brazilian film shot in Rio and set during Carnival. The story seems to develop in an odd way, causing me to exclaim "I don't know what's going on" several times, but it is aurally and visually brilliant so whatever was going on (I'm still not too sure) it was fun to watch.
