I've recently been on a quest (thanks to Amazon) to relive some of the influential films of my childhood, among them: "The Red Balloon" Red Balloon (Ballon Rouge, Le) [Import, All-regions] (Dvd - 1956) , "Nanook of the North" Nanook of the North (Criterion Collection Spine #33) , and "Mondo Cane" Mondo Cane .
These were films (with the exception of Mondo Cane) that were shown on old 16mm projectors in the auditorium of my elementary school during rainy days when we couldn't be out on the playground.
I fondly remembered them (or at least various segments) though I hadn't seen them for decades.
"Mondo Cane" is a 1962 Italian production directed by Gualtiero Jacopetti, Paolo Cavara and Franco Prosperi, and produced by Mario Massei.
It is the first in a series of early reality `Shock' and `Exploitation' films composed of vignettes shot from around the world and edited in a fashion to contrast the social differences and similarities of the various cultures.
"Mondo Cane" was released theatrically in the states in the early 1960's.
This was a shocker of a film for its day, and I saw it from the backseat of my parent's car at a drive-in. It wasn't the main feature, as in those days double and sometimes triple feature movies were common and would be presented along with accompanying cartoons and newsreels.Read more ›
By all means buy the DVD if you saw this film like I did back when it was first released and want to see it again. Otherwise I suggest you give it a big miss.
