"The film was both a box office and critical failure on its release, but now it is considered to be both imaginative and influential. Variety claimed 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. /...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." However, it has gained a cult following... /...and has had considerable influence on pop and film culture in the decades following its original release." - Wikipedia

Jodu, det var rätt jobbigt. Men när jag bestämt mig och väl börjat så...

Ingen av filmerna är vidare bra. Ganska dåliga faktiskt. Men stajlen och scenografin är bra cool! I princip har du sett det göttaste ur filmerna när du kollat på de här bilderna. Barbarella är dock värd att se för Fondas skull. Mums.
