ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK ALBUM
Music Composed by Riz Ortolani and Nino Oliviero (1962)
Acclaimed as one of the finest, most exciting documentary films ever made, MONDO CANE was more than two years in the making, and literally covers the entire world in which we live, from New Guinea to the United States; from France to Malaya and Arabia, this is a stark, realistic portrayal of humanity in practically all of its stages from the most primitive to complete sophistication. To properly showcase a motion picture of this scope, a truly magnificent musical score has been added. A thing of sheer beauty, it has been carefully developed and recorded so that on its own it becomes a most important contribution to the Arts. Mondo Cane translated means "a world gone to the dogs." The film portrays the life around us, whether we have recognized it or not. And the music easily transplants one from the raw world to one in which only the very best abounds.
