Storyline

"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.

Worth a look.

This "Mondo" movie is centered around women. The film takes us around the world and we are shown a lot of pretty bizarre stuff. Female coed hitchhikers in Sweden, mothers of thalidomide babies, stone age drag queens, sexy polynesian dancers, and the bizarre "women of the window" of Hamburg are among the attractions. The sequence I found the most incredible was the village in Algeria where all the working age men were killed in civil war. The widows support the children by sneaking up during Algerian Army artillery practice and rush in between rounds to gather the shrapnel from the shells to sell to scrap metal dealers! Not the best "mondo" movie, but worth a look.
