Barbarella lives in a different world at some other time. I suppose people would call this film a camp sex movie, but barely even softcore, just some sexy outfits and a little nudity.

Jane Fonda is the heroine, going through her pin up phase. Roger Vadim directed in 1968. It’s a scifi film about, well, Barbarella trying to prevent destruction of the universe by a mad scientist. Really it’s about sexual awakening and discovery.

There’s not a lot we can say about it. It’s not very good, but it’s mindless entertainment, funny, of its time and very French.

You will see some familiar faces, including David Hemmings and Milo O’Shea. Oh yes, and Marcel Marceau.
