Product Description

Product Description

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.

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.

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!

A film very much of its time, and so barking mad that it is quite brilliant. Don't expect any profound commentary on the human condition, though; it is cheap, disposable, sci-fi akin to the Saturday serials from a bygone era.

The studio-bound sets are unconvincing, and much of the acting is execrable - poor dubbing doesn't help (although Joan Greenwood's voice matched with Anita Pallenberg's body is definitely a winning combination) - and there is a disjointed feel to the sequence of set-pieces reminiscent of the aforementioned serials, but Jane Fonda (then wife of director Roger Vadim), together with screen stalwarts David Hemmings and Milo O'Shea carry the piece quite well enough.

The story (such as it is) is thin - Barbarella (Fonda) is sent by the President of Earth to capture a renegade who has done the unthinkable in the peace-loving future where the greeting is "Love," by developing a weapon!

A pleasant-enough way to spend 100 minutes, and quite inoffensive (why it continues to cary a "15" certificate defies reason; it's arguably little more than a "PG"), and if you've ever wondered where Simon Le Bon's bandmates got the name of their group, the answer will be found here.

This is just so much fun and so sexy - a feast for the eye and not to be taken seriously. Authentic chunk of 60s whimsy and idealism from the man who claimed to have "discovered" Brigitte Bardot - as if it involved a voyage to the bottom of the world, rather than the world of the bottom. Of which we get plenty here, lovingly photographed on a safe Rome sound-stage. La Dolce Vita. Then Jane Fonda discovered politics, commitment, and Hanoi Jane left her knowing innocence behind on celluloid. My favourite line: Milo O'Shea after Barbarella busts his pleasure torture machine: "Have you no shame?" I guess not - and all the better for it. One day we'll rise with the blind angel and zoom far away from Planet PC. "Love!"

The 1960s produced some of the most important works of science-fiction in cinematic history - features which have influenced generations, pushed boundaries of technique and storytelling. La Jetee, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Planet of the Apes stimulate the cerebrum and represent a master class in allegorical exploration of what it is to be human - but only Barbarella saw Jane Fonda get her chebs out in zero gravity as she embarked on an adventure in a fur-lined spacecraft. Nearly half a century on, Fonda still looks incredible - but the rest of the film hasn't aged well.

Barbarella was a flop at the time but has gained a cult following, and although the film is average at best - you can't help but feel defensive about it. With killer lines such as "wait, let me adjust my tongue-box" and "de-crucify him or I'll melt your face" along with a bonkers plot, this is an entertaining film - but not in the way it intends to be. The visual effects are dodgy and some of the sets look cobbled together from whatever was left around the studio (with backdrop curtains which could have been rejects from a school play). It's sometimes hard to believe that this was released the same year as Kubrick's masterpiece. Despite the lack of intelligent plot and the absence of a half decent script, Barbarella does contain some iconic moments - those demonic, biting dolls are still the stuff of nightmares.
