  • nematomaranka's rating of the film Mondo

    Never have I seen exaggeration of reality so vital for a film to make me experience it to the full. Films aren't representing our poor, humble lives, it is a life itself. Events, people are just variables, the coldness and the hotness, the rain and the stone are everywhere.

  • CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Mondo

    Una historia cálida. Gatlif retrata a un personaje entrañable. Lo vemos vagar solitario y la conciencia cinéfila (neorrealista) nos hace pensar en un relato pesimista. Error. El protagonista sin casa camina como si estuviese en ella. Conquista lugares, personas, sueña, la música lo acompaña, tal vez es su descendencia. Ya luego el filme se descubre: era oda a los desprotegidos. Mondo ya no está pero queda su rumor.
