Movie Info

In the tradition of Mondo Cane (1961), this Austrian-Swiss documentary captures the eccentric underside of human behavior in a variety of slum settings throughout the world -- Moscow (subway thieves, a downbeat detox clinic, depressing life of a female factory-worker), Mexico City (family dining on chicken-feet soup, customers groping a nightclub stripper, dogs at dawn in a garbage dump), New York (a street hustler, a radio call-in show), Bombay (back-alley poverty, waders in polluted rivers). Made with a blow-up from Super 16, the film features Hindi, English, Spanish, and Russian dialogue. Shown at the 1998 Locarno Film Festival, the 1998 Toronto Film Festival, and the 1998 San Sebastian Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
