  • Dolce e selvaggio is a Mondo film directed by Antonio Climati and Mario Morra. The title "Sweet and Savage" refers to the juxtaposition of pleasant and violent imagery within the film. It is narrated by the producer and long-time Mondo film director Franco Prosperi. The film is the third and final entry in Climati and Morra's Savage Trilogy and is also the last collaborative feature between the two directors. Footage in the film was supplemented by scenes that originally appeared in their previous two films, Ultime grida dalla savana and Savana violenta. Morra went on to direct one final Mondo film, The Savage Zone, while Climati later made the cannibal film Natura contro in 1988. The film has gained notoriety for the inclusion of several scenes of human death. One of the scenes, in which a man is tied to two trucks that tear off his arm, is staged. The other scenes, which are genuine, include a corpse in Tibet that is hacked apart by monks and fed to vultures and the accidental deaths of tightrope walker Karl Wallenda and stuntman A.J. Bakunas.
