A dreadfully dull 'faux' mondo movie by Bruno Mattei.
With a wink and a smile, Laura Gemser, sultry star of many an Italian exploitation flick, introduces viewers to a world of sex, strippers, sleaze and violence, as captured by prolific Italian director Bruno Mattei.
The film (hosted by Gemser in varying states of undress) reveals bizarre happenings around the world, which is presented to the audience as real-life 'mondo' footage, but which, in reality, is a series of specially orchestrated sequences designed specifically for this movie.
My version of this 70s piece of cinematic trash was uncut and unsubtitled, which meant that Gemser's prattle-track (in Italian) meant virtually nothing to me. But even without a complete understanding of proceedings, I can confidently state that this film is mind-numbingly dull, despite wall-to-wall nudity, much softcore sex, and a few brief moments of extreme bloody nastiness.
Although I can't be sure that the following descriptions are 100% accurate, here is a brief rundown of the 'best bits' in this dreadful film: a stripper performs with a man in a manky gorilla costume; another stripper performs with a couple of rather uninterested canines; a prostitute shows potential customers her wares, before inviting one 'lucky' chap into her glass-fronted booth for a freebie session; a bizarre magic show, in which an English speaking magician transforms his sexy assistant into a hermaphrodite; a shocking scene set in deepest, darkest Africa, in which an adulterous couple are punished for their sins (by genital mutilation and decapitation!); a sexy game, in which women poke their bare butts though a hole in a screen and have sex with men who might possibly be their husband; some voodoo/ Macumba shenanigans, in which chickens have their heads removed; and a woman inserting ping-pong balls up her 'holiest-of-holies'.
Whilst this all sounds like unmissable fare for fans of weird cinema, believe me when I say that staying awake during this film is a real challenge. How Bruno Mattei makes gratuitous nudity and sleaze so difficult to endure is beyond my understanding, but he does so with aplomb.
