The excesses and eccentricities of the 20th century once again go under the cinematic microscope in this shockumentary inspired by the international hit Mondo Cane. Mondo Balordo documents a wide variety of strange and unsavory behavior, ranging from teenage dueling clubs in Berlin where facial scars are a badge of honor to Japanese photographers who stage bondage scenarios with nubile young women to satisfy the demands of certain specialized magazines. Also included for your edification are women who bleach their hair using camel's urine, nightclubs catering to cross-dressers and lesbians, midget rock & roll singers, a dancer who is convinced he is the reincarnation of Rudolph Valentino, and Peruvian field hands who have learned to use the cocoa leaf to get them through the workday. Boris Karloff provides narration for the American-release version.
