Beware of drugs.
16 October 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

"Drogs Sterco Di Dio", also called "Drugs: A River of No Return", is a Mondo/documentary film by Stelvio Massi, year 1989.

Basic plot: This film deals with an atrocious and inhuman truth of various worldwide drug problems, according to the text which scrolls in the opening sequence. Some of the problems include: Drug trafficking, investigations and how drugs can be affecting to some people.

After the opening birth sequence, this film shows us how some of the drugs are being made by some people around the world, including tribe people and Indian people.

Later on, we get to see how crime scenes are being investigated in some places around the world, including Hong Kong and some jungle places. In some of the worst cases, bodies have to endure some autopsy as packages of drugs are being put into these bodies (pretty disturbing). Several airports around the world use dogs to sniff you illegal drugs.

This film also tells about what could happen if anybody should be a drug addict.

I found this film to be interesting and important. I mean, even though some of the scenes could be somewhat disturbing and gross at times, I would at least recommend any people who are into drugs and smoking to watch this film at least once. At least one of the objective of this film was to warn any people from the world of drugs, and eventually save even one life from such fate.

Once again, I would recommend any people (at the age of 18 and over) to watch this film, at least to learn about the scourge of drugs and to stay away from such stuff. In my opinion, because of how the topic has been handled by the team behind this film, I would give this film an overall rating of 7/10.
