“Mondo Cane 2000 – L’incredibile” (“Mondo Dog 2000 – The Incredible”) is a 1988 documentary film directed by Gabriele Crisanti and Stelvio Massi. The film was released two years after “Mondo Cane Oggi – L’Orrore Continua” and diverges somewhat from the traditional “mondo” genre, drawing inspiration from films like “Faces of Death.”
Content and Subject Matter
The film features scenes of brutal violence, sex, nudity, and various curiosities from different countries. Among the topics covered are porn taxis, gay pride parades, erotic bakeries, child prostitution, children forced to crush coca leaves (resulting in severe skin injuries), human skin trade, and sick children. In keeping with the “mondo” tradition, animals are not spared from cruelty; however, this is limited to two scenes involving the extraction of a monkey’s heart while it is still alive and another operation on a monkey for testosterone.
