Review

Our Score
The famed French comic strip comes to glorious psychedelic life in this 41st-century space opera from director Roger Vadim. Once you get past Jane Fonda's infamous antigravity striptease however, the script turns rather dull and the imaginative sets steal the whole show as Fonda's nubile intergalactic bimbo experiences close encounters of the sexually bizarre kind. A pleasure machine, cannibalistic dolls and Anita Pallenberg's Black Queen help ease the verbal vacuum in Vadim's relentless visual assault, which is sure to delight some and prove tiresome to others.

Summary

A futuristic space heroine embarks on a series of bizarre sexual misadventures as she searches a strange planet for an evil scientist threatening galactic peace. Surreal sci-fi adventure, starring Jane Fonda, John Phillip Law, Anita Pallenberg, Milo O'Shea and David Hemmings.
