Carmen is a French opera set in 19th-century Spain, but this version shifts the setting to 1940s America, with an African-American cast and updated lyrics in English. Carmen, a beautiful factory worker, falls in love with a soldier but then switches her attention to a strutting boxer, setting off jealous reactions that threaten all three of them. Mining the themes of the original opera and translating them to the experiences of 20th century black Americans, the film is a rousing, glamorous and charming musical.
