Barbarella An over-sexed space agent One of the favored plot devices for generations of satirists is the Candide -like protagonist: a wide-eyed innocent who, through a series of misadventures is able to naively comment on a variety of satirical targets.

Strangelove with Stanley Kubrick. InTerry Southern, then much-in-demand, was recruited to write the screenplay for Barbarellaa film based on a five-year-old French comic strip by cartoonist Jean-Claude Forest. Southern altered the heroine's persona to be a bit more like Candywhile the plot and incidents in the script all came from Forest's first book collection of Barbarella strips published in and translated into 12 languages.

In the year 40, Barbarella Jane Fonda is a solo space aviatrix and adventurer. She is called upon by the President of the Republic of Earth Claude Dauphin to locate Durand-Durand Milo O'Sheabecause the renegade scientist has invented a weapon called a Positronic Ray with which he plans to overtake the Universe. Barbarella searches for the city of SoGo, and has many strange encounters along the way, including a run-in with children armed with cannibalistic dolls, bedding down with a fur-covered huntsman Ugo Tognazziand crossing ice fields in a sled powered by stingrays.

Barbarella restores Pygar's confidence by making love to him, and Pygar carries her aloft to SoGo. Barbarella mixes among the people of SoGo, and with the help of the rebel Dildano David Hemmings she exposes the plot of Durand-Durand to overthrow The Great Tyrant as his first step in controlling the Universe.

Barbarella was a bone-fide International production, financed by Italian mega-producer Dino De Laurentiis, directed by Roger Vadim of France, and featuring an English-speaking cast from around the globe. This cast was an eclectic, inspired gathering of iconic actors and personalities with strong s cachet: David Hemmings Blow-Up [] ; model, actress and jet-setter Anita Pallenberg, who was romantically involved with Brian Jones and Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones at different times; world-famous mime Marcel Marceau; and John Phillip Law, a favorite for his roles in eccentric international productions Danger: Diabolik [] and mainstream oddities Skidoo [].

The lynchpin of Barbarellahowever, is Jane Fonda. She is in virtually every scene, and her wide-eyed-yet-knowing performance is the one winning constant in an otherwise uneven production. Yet, when Fonda first received the offer of the role, she tossed it away. Director Roger Vadim and actress Jane Fonda had been married since ; it was the third marriage for the director, whose first wife, Brigitte Bardot, was catapulted to stardom in his film And God Created Woman Vadim and Fonda were living in Malibu, California in when Jane received a letter from famous Italian producer De Laurentiis to come to Rome and star in a film based on a comic strip.

Fonda wadded up the letter and threw it in the wastebasket.

The film is ugly on so many levels -- from art direction to human values -- that it's hard to know where to begin.

Dave Kehr. Despite a certain amount of production dash and polish and a few silly-funny lines of dialog, Barbarella isn't very much of a film. Variety Staff. Terry Southern's dialogue occasionally sparkles, and the imaginative designs, as shot by Claude Renoir, look really splendid.

Throughout the movie, there is the assumption that just mentioning a thing sex, politics, religion makes it funny and that mentioning it in some offensive context makes it funnier. Renata Adler.

Professor Ping. President of Earth.Barbarella is a erotic science fiction film directed by Roger Vadim and based on the French Barbarella comics from Jean-Claude Forest.

Duran Duran took their name from the mad scientist Dr. Durand Durand, a character in the film. Set in the 40th century, Barbarella follows the adventures of its title character played by Jane Fonda.

Beyond this premise, the plot is very loose, serving mostly as an excuse for Barbarella to end up in erotic situations. On her quest to find Durand Durand, Barbarella is seduced by a human resident of SoGo, who introduces her to penetrative intercourse civilized people of Barbarella's society find sexual release through pharmaceuticalsseduces an angel named Pygar, and overloads a torture device called the Excessive Machine which kills through sexual pleasure.

Barbarella is famous for a sequence in which the title character, played by Jane Fonda, undresses in zero gravity during the opening credits. The whole film is played in a tongue-in-cheek manner;especially when it comes to the frequent but not explicit sex scenes.

The most controversial of those scenes involves Barbarella being tortured by the use of a piano-like instrument that delivers sexual pleasure in doses that can be lethal, although Barbarella survives the ordeal and is visibly disappointed when it is discovered she has overloaded the machine.

The film was simultaneously shot in French and English.


Some characters' lines were performed by the same actors in both languages; others were not:. De Laurentiis returned to camp science fiction but with far less erotica with s Flash Gordon. The film was both a box office and critical failure on its release. Variety ' s review stated that "Despite a certain amount of production dash and polish and a few silly-funny lines of dialogue, Barbarella isn't very much of a film.

Barbarella (film)

Based on what has been called an adult comic strip, the Dino De Laurentiis production is flawed with a cast that is not particularly adept at comedy, a flat script, and direction which can't get this beached whale afloat. Jane Fonda has subsequently lamented the fact that she turned down starring roles in two major hit films, Bonnie and Clyde and Rosemary's Baby to stay in France and star in Barbarellawhich was being directed by her then husband Roger Vadim. The film's score was also popular and obtained a cult following.

The music was composed by Bob Crewe and Charles Fox. During his first European tour in Frank Zappa flew from Copenhagen to Italy to meet Vadim and Fonda in order to discuss the possibility of him composing the music for the film. It never happened, but Frank Zappa remained faithful to his love for sci-fi, and composed several tributes to the genre. In the world of comicsthe manga artists collectively known as CLAMP parodied Barbarella in one chapter of their Miyuki-chan in Wonderlandthe chapter titled TV no Kuni no Miyuki-chan Miyuki-chan in TV Land shows several of the characters including some female versions trying to seduce the main character.

It gets packed pretty fast. The AC was blasting and the music was too. Had I been 20, Came expecting a dance club, left having experienced a dance club. Went on a Friday night, so 80's music! Bar service was fast and prices for drinks were reasonable. I've been going to Barbarella for years and it's fair to say the crowd has changed, to no one's surprise since Austin itself has changed so much. The place tends to be popping with dance music and gets very crowded.

I like the usual crowd This is probably the only fun place for a night of partying in Austin. I came here with some college students in Austin and had a great time here with a lovely atmosphere and crowd which was a lot better than some of the other Went here after going in thru Swan Dive next door.
