Orphea in Love wins Grand Prix
We congratulate "Orphea in Love" for the Grand Prix at Golden Prague!
Justification: Orphea convincingly reinterprets the ancient myth of Orpheus with great cinematographic talent and an enormous sense of humour, making fun of regietheater.
A young call centre agent falls in love with a petty criminal street dancer. She is Orpheus. He is Eurydice. She expresses herself through singing, he articulates himself through his dance. For her great love, she descends into the underworld, faces her old demons, and learns to trust again…
“Orphea in Love” is a sweet homage to the opera and to love itself while simultaneously telling its story through a mix of realism and kitsch that, in a way, feels just as close to Flashdance as to Gluck or Puccini.
