This influential cult sci-fi is a feast for the eyes on the big screen.
Dir Roger Vadim
With Jane Fonda, Milo O’Shea, David Hemmings, Anita Pallenberg
Jane Fonda excels in this cult sci-fi about Barbarella, a UN rep out to thwart Durand-Durand, a scientist planning Earth’s destruction with a deadly weapon. Her subsequent space journey includes an encounter with a blind angel, a lesbian queen and a machine that causes excessive sexual pleasure. Fifty years on, its vision of the future may not be prophetic, but Barbarella’s visuals and design have proved hugely influential.
