The year is 40,000. After peaceful floating in zero-gravity, astronaut Barbarella (Jane Fonda) lands on the frozen planet Lythion and sets out to find renowned scientist Durand Durand in the City of Night, where a new sin is invented every hour. There, she encounters such objects as the Excessive Machine, a genuine sex organ on which an expert artist of the keyboard, in this case, Durand Durand himself, can drive a victim to death by pleasure, a lesbian queen who can make her fantasies take form in her Chamber of Dreams, and a group of ladies smoking a giant hookah which dispenses Essence of Man through a poor victim struggling in its glass globe. Can our heroine overcome all odds to complete her mission?! Directed by Roger Vadim. 1968. Rated PG. 1 hour, 38 minutes.
