The year is 40,000 on Planet Lythion where Barbarella (Jane Fonda) makes a forced landing during a secret mission to find the lost evil scientist Durand Durand. Once there, she must use her skills, style, beauty and eroticism to vanquish evil in the form of robots and monsters.

See Barbarella do her thing in the wild excessive machine, in the biting bird cage, in the chamber of dreams, in the labyrinth of love, in the deadly doll house, in the palace of pleasure. You'll find adventure beyond your imagination, when you get lost in space with Barbarella.

Format: DVD
I confess that I have a soft spot for this film. It was made the year after I was born, and when it was shown on TV in about 1975/6, it was the first time that I ever saw a naked lady on the small screen. I was suitably goggle-eyed. As a result, the film lived long in my memory.
Barbarella is a gloriously campy and silly sci-fi send-up. The titular lead character, played by Jane Fonda, is a nymphomaniac, intergalactic space agent, who goes on a mission to find a missing inventor. During her adventure, she meets a curious combination of aliens, creatures, eccentric oddballs, and she has to learn about methods of sex which are, if you'll excuse the pun, alien to her.
This movie is definitely worth watching for fans of cult movies, classic sci-fi, and the plain weird "out there" flicks. Jane Fonda is perfectly cast, and she has never looked more beautiful. From the very famous opening scene, where she strips nude, whilst floating about in her space craft, she frequently sheds her clothing. There is lots of use of space age technology, including rockets, lasers, and guns.
There is a vaguely scary scene, where Barbarella is attacked by some nefarious, living, porcelain dolls, with gnashing razor teeth (possibly an inspiration for the much later horror film starring the killer doll Chucky - Child's Play [DVD] [1988] ). There are multiple scenes with bare breasts, naked female bodies in silhouette, implied sexual intercourse, talks about sex, and overall there is a very strong sensation of sensuality and suggestiveness.
It wouldn't be too harsh to describe Barbarella as a very naughty Carry On type of film.

I must confess that the first review I read of the recently released blu ray had me spooked.
My pre-order had arrived and was as yet unviewed. Haven't watched the whole movie yet but here are my first impressions of the transfer. The picture quality wasn't the disaster I expected. True there is a degree of grain which is only to be expected on a movie more than 50 yrs old, and to be fair there are much better preserved examples of similar or older vintage out there (e.g. Zulu) but the mastering job is actually fairly decent. Those who like to make a correlation between video bit rate and image quality will be pleased to hear the video rate is continually nudging the 40 Mb/sec mark. (Something this film shares with Zulu and other top transfers). The grain is quickly forgotten after a few minutes.

Comparing it with the R2 dvd reveals that they've either found a better original or managed to clean it up quite a bit.
The R2 dvd shows a lot of flaws on the master (i.e. white/black "sparklies") which are almost entirely absent on the blu ray.
Resolution is much improved on the blu ray and makes the purchase well worthwhile.
If you have a huge screen and have a tendency to sit too close then the grain might be a deal-breaker for you but for anyone else I say enjoy this version because it's as good as you'll get (for the moment....)

Nothing special to report here. Being on Blu-ray there is the obvious increase in picture quality to high definition, the film hasn't been restored since its last DVD release, but still looks good. Sadly, this jump to HD is the only reason to buy it. No extras other than a teaser trailer. I think the biggest disappointment is the sound. It's still mono. This is fine for purists as the film was shot and originally presented in mono. I was hoping for an alternative 5.1 mix, but no. Is the movie any good? I think it's an all-time '60s classic, please look at other reviews or IMDB if you want to know about the film itself. This is purely a technical review.

The story ? 'Barbarella' is given instructions to seek out and return 'Durand Durand' ( lost in space for five yearS ) back to earth.
along the way she has to submit to now outdated sexual advances ( which makes a change from 'pill' induced climaxes )
Though, when finding him, will he want to return ?
With sexually driven undertones throughout this really is a strange cinematic experience indeed.
Outdated and seriously weird , 10/10 for the sizzling 'Jane Fonda' however----thank heaven for the technology advances of today...............strictly for the memories.

It had been a few years since I watched "Barbarella", and watching it again for a second time recently was joy, like discovering its kitsch joys for the first time all over again!
There's no point dwelling on the plot, because it's as thin and transparent as most of Jane Fonda's outfits! This is pure high camp comedy, wonderfully played up a superb cast. Some wonderful characters, brilliant one liners, and some of the oddest sets and costumes ever seen on film. Highly unenjoyable and would be instantly forgettable were it not for Jane Fonda excelling as our heroine and also for introducing the name "Duran Duran" to the world!

Yes please! :o) You can keep your "oh-so-serious" The Dark Knight and other such "let's all revel in abject misery" type movies. Give me Barbarella any day of the week. Jane Fonda in her physical prime - what more could anyone ask? And Anita Pallenberg isn't exactly chopped liver either!! Add to this David Hemmings blissfully amusing turn as the unfortunately, but also aptly named, Dildano and you have a fun, tongue-in-cheek science-fiction movie in the mould of the eighties Flash Gordon and nineties The Fifth Element.

If you like your sci-fi deadly serious then Barbarella will not be for you, but if you can appreciate a movie that is just unadulterated fun then take a look.

The movie could have done with some more plot and a higher budget, but it is okay to pass away the doldrums of an ever increasing grey world! A world where the unenlightened majority still live in a "primitive state of neurotic irresponsibility" as Barbarella herself so eloquently describes the possible inhabitants of Tau Ceti. No political correctness here to spoil our fun.

To quote the Joker in the aforementioned The Dark Knight, "Why so serious?".
