Barbarella, an astronaut from the 41st century, sets out to find and stop the evil scientist Durand Durand, whose Positronic Ray threatens to bring evil back into the galaxy.
The picture is officially considered to be a "cult film" and is included in Danny Peary's book "Cult Movies 2".
Stand by for a message from Dianthus, President of Earth and Rotating Premier of the Sun System.
It is established that Barbarella needs a Tongue Box, a device attached to the bracelet she wears on her left wrist, to understand the spoken language of Sogo. Barbarella loses the bracelet after the Excessive Machine scene, but she still understands the Great Tyrant, Pygar and the Sogoites speaking through the Tyrant's monitor.
In the opening credits, the letters in the words move around in an attempt to obscure Barbarella's nudity.
The original European version had all the nudity intact on its first release.
