About this movie

Barbarella is marked by the same audacity and originality, fantasy, humor, beauty and horror, cruelty and eroticism that make comic books such a favorite. The setting is the planet Lythion in the year 40,000, when Barbarella (Jane Fonda) makes a forced landing while traveling through space. She acts like a female James Bond, vanquishing evil in the forms of robots and monsters. She also rewards, in an uninhibited manner, the handsome men who assist her in the adventure. Whether she is wrestling with Black Guards, the evil Queen, or the Angel Pygar, she just can't seem to avoid losing at least a part of her skin-tight space suit!

I think this would have been better as a campy 80s movie, but then I don't know how far they could've taken it sex wise.

I've actually seen this movie, if its listed as PG it must be pretty heavily edited. The trailer even says "For Mature Audiences Only".

Brilliant 60'ies Graphic Novel and early visualization in a movie. Sidenote: The villain is Duran Duran... you might remember that name... Brilliant very young Jane Fonda is a clear role model for feminists and astronetts alike. Truly deserves a remake! But still a goldy!
