BARBARELLA

Roger Vadim
USA, I 1968
98min
V'07

A coy European sex comedy with space-opera trappings and an American accent, this frothy Roger Vadim/Jane Fonda collaboration reads like a grown-up, sci-fi update of Alice in Wonderland. Barbarella is actually something of a treat if one approaches it with the right attitude. From the eye-popping plasticity of the production design to the gentle grooviness of the Bob Crewe Generation's campy lounge soundtrack, Barbarella is a defiantly trivial film. But Fonda's studied vacuity, Anita Pallenberg's kinky glamour, and John Phillip Law's bronzed pecs and hippie truisms keep things sexy, sweet, and funny. Unless you are a humorless dogmatist, a puritan, or a holdover from the anti «Hanoi Jane» school of patriotism, it's hard to be anything but amused and entertained. (Brian J. Dillard)
