A look at the careers of Gualtiero Jacopetti and Franco Prosperi who invented the mondo genre with MONDO CANE in 1962. It follows their career until their split in following the making of GOODBYE UNCLE TOM in 1971.
This 89 minute subtitled documentary on the Mondo films of Gualtiero Jacopetti and Franco E. Prosperi can be viewed in Blue Underground superb Mondo Cane Collection. It features the two directors talking about their films, the controversies said films made, the favorite films of both, as well as other things. Self congratulatory at times, insightful at other, but always intriguing and endlessly watchable to anyone even remotely interested in the TRUE Mondo films (that is to say not the false crappy Mondo pretenders to the throne like "Faces of Death", "Asia Extreme", "Mondo Topless", etcetera) This is very compelling stuff and I, not only recommend it, but the entire DVD set.
