The intercut story of two women: a nearly-mute beauty queen who descends into withdrawal and madness, and another who captains a ship laden with candy and sugar, luring men and boys aboard for sex, death, and revolutionary talk. The beauty queen passes from a wealthy husband whose honeymoon delight is to urinate on her, to a muscular keeper who punches her, stows her in a suitcase, and ships her to Paris, to a lip-synching rock idol with whom she has a love spasm, to an Austrian commune complete with a banquet of vomit, urine, feces, chopped dildos, and wet nurses. By then she's in a fetal position, until everyone's rescued by reminders that "it's just a movie." Written by
Anna Prucnal was exiled from her native country Poland for seven years as a result of her role in the movie. She was denied a Visa to enter Poland to see her dying mother during that time. See more »
Miss Monde 1984:
[after a less-than-satisfying honeymoon with Mr. Kapital]
I expected something else to happen.

Please disregard any preconceptions you may have regarding this film. Anyone who attempts to find artistic merit in this film are simply telling lies to become exclusive. The world of artistic cinema is a very elitist camp and you are not welcome. There is no plot, so story, simply abstract imagery. You'll read comments stating that this film is a stark look at humanity and that it's nihilistic nature is set out for us to introspectively and retrospectively review the nature of the human condition. This film is awful. It was a tool used in the seventies for those "art types" to further separate themselves from the common man.
It is dated exploitation. There is no redeeming factors in this film at all. You will waste your time watching this film. I can assure you, my friends and I enjoy all kinds of film, foreign cinema, the most disturbing and violent films, ridiculous American comedy, Anime, drama, etc... and we can comfortably agree, this is one of the most terrible things we've ever seen.
