Plot – Spoilers:
In 1962, a work was put out that was so staggeringly spectacular, it invented a genre – Mondo or the shockumentary.

Mondo Cane is made up of disconnected vignettes from around the world. The primary purpose is to shock. But not so much with the content. Rather, to contrast the so-called savages against the western world, while drawing parallels. Things that are held precious in one culture are eaten or despised in another. The humour is dark and cynical and the voiceover at best, sarcastic. All of this set against spectacular music.

Mondo Cane is a truly effedup film. Sure, there’s enough stuff in here to shock even an internet-raised viewer. But it’s effedup more because – through its contempt for the human species, it’ll remind you how narrow your world, views and morality is.

Favorite Scenes:
Almost every moment of this could count as a favorite one, but the one that really jolts is the sight of the tribesmen receiving Catholic Communion in a makeshift church.

In order to make amends for the crimes committed by “old whitey” against POC, (my, how very cutting edge of you!) you should gather all your worldly possessions and give them to the very next POC you encounter.

Yeah… I thought not.

Pro Tip – POC hate people like YOU even more.

Lecter you cunt. Poc is racist now. Whites are the colorful people. Blue when we’re cold, brown in the sun, green when we’re sick etc. We owe you nothing..NOTHING

So did ‘whitey’ also invent female genital mutilation (FGM to you) along with other horrors like foot binding and child marriage? While the so-called civilised (white) man is guilty of many atrocities and injustices on this planet, please allow people of colour to claim their share.

Cmon guys! You are on EUM! You should know that humans, no matter what colour, creed, race, ethinicity, or nationality we belong, are fucked up beyond belief.

The movie literally depicts how equally fucked up both white and so called POC are. The white people in movie are literally just “savages” with suit and machines.

Nah, but this movie is still extremely fuckin racist. There are shitty humans of all races, but all the scenes with white people are all tee-hee! Sailors love boobies, and scenes with any non-whites are “THEY THINK PIGS AND BABIES ARE THE SAME CUE THE HORRIFYING TRAGIC MUSIC.” The shock is totally there, but there’s about as much documentary validity to this as there is to Disney’s White Wilderness where they forcibly shoved lemmings off a cliff…

Nothing like missing the point… i really don’t understand how anyone could interpret this as racist anymore than it is an exploration of culture and truth. This is clearly not a modern film therefore it doesn’t need your pathetic virtue signalling. I truly don’t know how a bleeding heart liberal like yourself ended up here in the first place.

Well yeah, Africa Addio is more “racist” and the UK government had to edit out certain scenes to make it more politically correct. Whatever happened to “praise the journalists”?

*clap clap clap clap clap* I applaud both your comment AND your attitude, sir. What these Leftist maggots fail to see is as Western chauvinists, we will not apologize for creating the modern world… where things like female genital mutilation and foot binding are savage, primitive acts of undeveloped minds. I am so sick of these crybaby virtual signaling mattress stains… Right now, the only reason these scumbags are allowed to exist is because it’s illegal to kill them. And what they refuse to understand is the very people they pretend to defend hate them just as much as I… Read more »

It’s not really racist, it’s just culture-ist, which is ok. African-Americans are developed, just not most african-africans. Europe went through a turkish invasion and lived, Africa is still in the shitter, even after this film. It’s also weird how most Mondo films are “racist”, which tend to be documentaries, and the only mondo film that is not a documentary (Goodbye Uncle Tom) is very “anti-racist”. In the end, don’t expect Africa to be all rainbows and happiness. South Africa is a hellhole, which seems to be the case for all of Africa… except for north Africa but that’s practically the… Read more »

Curious facts: Yves Klein, the “blue” painter was incredibly offended by the way the two Italian directors shot his scene in this movie (too much focus on the girls and too little on the art). He got so stressed that he died of a heart attack a few days after watching the movie.

If humans never invented weapons, animals, such as bulls, wild hogs, sharks, snakes, and even dogs, can easily kill a human being. Damn those savages who hurts animals!
