                                                  Barbarella (1968) Director: Roger Vadim

 Its set in the future a young "Jane Fonda" (Barbarella) is set out on a quest. To find (Durand Durand) She go's to the planet Lythion were she finds the city of Sogo. Where a sin is found around every corner.

"Durand Durand' (Milo O'Shea)

In the city there is an Excessive Machine which can kill with pleasure. The special effects are quite good you cant help but be impressed with them. Its a bit camp in places "Pygar" (Character). I'm not impressed with this film if you take out "Jane fonda" you don't have much to go on the story is bad to. The films definition is a Machine thats gives you sexual pleasure till death

'Why did Jane make a film like this? Even she does not know herself.'

'The film is ugly on so many levels -- from art direction to human values -- that it's hard to know where to begin.'
Dave Kehr
Chicago Reader

'Great production design and very little else.'
