Storyline

A satirical film on fads in the US. A TV host on a late night show tries to convince his televiewers that they should return to Rome and Roman ways. Depicts in a semi-realistic manner what could happen if the latest America fad became Reditus Ad Roma, a Return to Rome. Launched as a gimmick by a late night TV show, the International Culture Hour, the fad catches on fast and soon everybody from the long-haired pop singers to senators, from motor cycle outlaws to the military chiefs of the Pentagon, are dressing up in togas and taking part in orgies organized at the fashionable discos and in private houses. A mysterious figure from the Other World, a Roman general who survived the fall of Rome, who has been sent to Earth to convince our sin soaked masses not to let it happen again, provides the moral. But Gregarious the Ancient Roman, never manages to open his mouth on TV and ends by throwing himself into the familiar arms of a shapely maiden whose Reditus Ad Roma outfit has been ...

Fantastic Trip
14 January 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film was transmitted around early 1987 on Channel 7 in Australia and I was fortunate enough to have found this gem on the end of a program I had taped. It is unavailable on VHS or DVD and that is a crime! This is a fantastic 'head' film, full of trippy video effects,rapid edits, cheesy slogans, guru's, hippies and hip marketing men who come up with the idea that they can make a few bucks from marketing Roman clothing. This is due to the sudden arrival of a legit sentient Roman from 2000 years back(the head attire looks way cool for 1969) and will generate far better sales than 'ZAP POW' washing liquid. Fans of Frank Zappa's '200 motels' or 'The Trip' or even Jodorowsky 'The Holy Mountain' will like this film as it is not linear and is a great historical time capsule for the USA 60's period.
