This movie reminds me at the work of Fellini. It's perhaps even more cynical and extravagant. But "Mondo Candido" is a true, genuine, masterpiece, a rare gem coming from the colourful imagination of the Italian directors team Jacopetti & Prosperi who were responsible for the shockumentaries in the past. Behind this kaleidoscope of violence, black humour and pessimism you will find a series of metaphors and a lot of symbolism. We can only hope that this movie will become available in widescreen on DVD in the future... Highly recommended!
