Fantastic Documentary of Warner Bros.
6 July 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I have just received the link to this fantastic documentary of Warner Bros. about the carnival in Rio de Janeiro in 1955 from a friend of mine:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xmmel1WrXXE&feature=channel_page

It shows landscapes of Rio de Janeiro, The Wonder City, gateway to Brazil and the most beautiful city of the world; the arrival of tourists in "strong silver wings" in a modern airport (of 1955); President Getúlio Vargas; scenes of the street carnival in the heart of the city, with dancing teams and mask groups wearing costumes and playing and singing samba, showing the spirit of the "cariocas" (people born in the city of Rio de Janeiro); the great societies (how the carnival clubs that come to the parade with allegoric cars were called); and the carnival balls where the high-society celebrate with the King and the Queen, drinking champagne and dancing with lots of joy. In addition, the soundtrack presents carnival songs of 1955.

This short is a must-see for "cariocas", Brazilians and lovers of documentaries. My vote is ten.
