"Women of the World" is an entertaining mondo movie from Paolo ("Mondo Cane") Cavara and Gualtiero ("Mondo Cane" 1 & 2, "Farewell Africa", "Goodbye Uncle Tom") Jacopetti.
Ably narrated by the legendary Peter Ustinov, this has an overall lighter tone than the other mondo movies from Cavara and Jacopetti, concentrating on the fairer of the species and their activities around the world. Cue some scenes of very lovely ladies as well as some less attractive females!
As always, some of the content does have a disturbing edge and there are some genuinely moving scenes.
The film's imagery and narration are accompanied by an excellent score by Nino Oliviero and Riz Ortolani.
7 out of 10. A memorable film experience and an interesting glimpse into the past. They don't make 'em like this anymore!
