Product Description

"The camera strips woman right down to her skin," proclaimed the ads, "...lays bare the secrets of her mind and body!" Using outtakes from MONDO CANE as their foundation, Directors Gualtiero Jacopetti, Paolo Cavara and Franco Prosperi created this leering yet lyrical study of women's roles in the international culture of the bizarre. Here is the female of the species as mothers, murderers, warriors and whores, respected as high-powered executives and objectified as bodacious bombshells, grasping for eternal beauty and even engaging in "unnatural friendships." From love in the streets of Paris to death on the African plain, the MONDO masters turn their unflinching eye on all the things never before known - and never before shown - about WOMEN OF THE WORLD.

WOMEN OF THE WORLD features sly English narration by two-time Academy Award(r) winning actor Peter Ustinov (TOPKAPI, SPARTACUS) as well as a remarkable score by Oscar(r)-nominated MONDO CANE composers Nino Oliviero and Riz Ortolani. Unseen for decades, this still-daring documentary has been fully restored from the original vault negative and is presented here completely uncut and uncensored.

If you are expecting a lot of nudity and titillating scenes, you will be disappointed. There is nudity but of the National Geographic kind. This is a 1960's view of women in different cultures throughout the world and since this was made before the ubiquitous invasion of television and the Internet, which has homogenized the world, it is quite interesting. Such a film would be much more difficult to make today because the differences between East and West, North and South has disappeared so much.

Jacopetti and Prosperi came back a year later with Women of the world a "mondo" film that attempted to show the bizarre rites and rituals of the female of the species. This film is essentially compiled extra footage taken from Mondo Cane.

Like Mondo Cane this film looks better than it has in many years. Blue Underground has done a great job on this restoration. This is also a film of purely historical interest so not much really needs to be said concerning its content. The materail is bizarre but quite tame by today's standards.

The dic features trailers for the film and is presented in its original Italian or English soundtracks. Of some interest is the witty commentary by Peter Ustinov that accompanies the film which was written by Jacopetti.

Worth seeing if you have an interest but better as a rental than as a purchase
