Mondo candido is a 1975 black comedy film directed by acclaimed Mondo directors Gualtiero Jacopetti and Franco Prosperi. The film is a liberal adaptation of Voltaire's novel Candide.
Candido (Christopher Brown) is a naïve young man raised by a Westphalian baron (Gianfranco D'Angelo). He is a devoted disciple of his tutor Dr. Panglos (Jacques Herlin) and a follower of his moral doctrines but cannot hide his feelings for the Baron's raunchy daughter Cunegonda (Michelle Miller). However, after a sudden invasion, Cunegonda disappears and Candido begins his errant in search of her and true love. The events take him to modern times and places like Israel where he witnesses the Arab–Israeli conflict and New York City, the living epitome of global capitalism.
