The screen version of the French comic book of the 1960s is the story of a seductive agent (Jane Fonda), traveling through the galaxy in year 4000 and engaging in sexual intercourse with representatives of various races and civilizations. An iconic film of the 1960s, in which the conquest of space is interwoven with the sexual revolution, and the genre of fiction is combined with camp aesthetics.
Paying tribute to the pop culture and the space advancements of the 1960s, Roger Vadim created an epic comedy fiction, where the salvation of the world lies on the shoulders of the heroine, whose hairdo and eye liner are no less important than her space weapon. The ideal woman from the ideal future, Barbarella became one of the sex symbols of the twentieth century.
