«Barbarella» (also known as "Barbarella: Queen of the Galaxy") is an Adventure/Science Fiction/Fantasy film directed by Roger Vadim, and written by Vittorio Bonicelli, Claude Brulé, Brian Degas, Jean-Claude Forest, Tudor Gates, Terry Southern, Roger Vadim and Clement Biddle Wood, released on October 10 of 1968 in the USA . Jane Fonda is starring, alongside John Phillip Law, Anita Pallenberg, Milo O'Shea, Marcel Marceau and Claude Dauphin.

Storyline:
In the 40th century, Barbarella (Jane Fonda) is assigned by the President of Earth (Claude Dauphin) to retrieve Doctor Durand-Durand (Milo O'Shea) from the planet Tau Ceti in order to save the Earth. On her quest, Barbarella is seduced by Mark Hand (Ugo Tognazzi), who introduces her to penetrative intercourse, something she is unaware of, since civilized people of Barbarella's society find their sexual release through pharmaceuticals. In turn, she seduces an angel named Pygar (John Phillip Law). She visits SoGo, a decadent city ruled over by the Great Tyrant, and powered by a liquid essence of evil called the Mathmos. She is captured, and overloads a torture device called the Excessive (or "Ex-sex-sive") Machine, which kills through sexual pleasure.
