Synopsis by Kristie Hassen
In the vein of Gualtiero Jacopetti's Mondo Cane (1963), this documentary features various oddities and customs of different cultures throughout the world. Narrated with wit and interesting commentary, this well-shot film often juxtaposes such segments as bizarre tribal rituals and unusual eating habits with the common behavior of more "civilized" cultures. Directed by Italy's Antonio Margheriti (a.k.a. Anthony M. Dawson) and Renato Marzi, Il Pelo Nei Mondo was greatly assisted with the music of Nino Oliviero -- who had also contributed to Mondo Cane.
