Mondo Candido (1975)


Mondo candido (1975)


Directors: Gualtiero Jacopetti, and Franco Prosperi

Stars: Christopher Brown, Michele Miller, Jacques Herlin.


Gualtiero Jacopetti and Franco Prosperi’s final collaboration is an outlandish masterpiece of cinematic confection far removed from the shockumentaries that had already established them as the godfathers of mondo. Transcending time, space, and logic, Mondo Candido is a sex-obsessed slice of comic psychedelia adapted from Voltaire’s 1759 satire Candide. Taught that he lives in “the best of all possible worlds,” Candido (Christopher Brown) finds himself banished, desperately searching of his beloved Cunegonda (Michele Miller) and disillusioned by a cruel and anachronistic world full of war, racism, religious violence, political oppression, and crass commercialism. Replete with sumptuous sets, surreal twists, slapstick sexuality, and a wild score by Riz Ortolani, Mondo Candido is an impossible to categorize, absurdist tour de force.
