Lena, aged twenty, wants to know all she can about life and reality. She collects information on everyone and everything, storing her findings in an enormous archive. She experiments with relationships, political activism, and meditation. Meanwhile, the actors, director and crew are shown in a humorous parallel plot about the making of the film and their reactions to the story and each other. Nudity, explicit sex, and controversial politics kept this film from being shown in the US while its seizure by Customs was appealed.Written by

The first major release to show full frontal nudity of both male and female performers, and genuine intercourse on screen
In the sixties, the Swedish films were known to be the most sexually graphic, but this is the one that really rocked the world It was shocking in its uninhibited portrayal of sex and in its fulminating piece of social democracy It was a significant step forward in getting the adult film shown in the theaters
The film comes in two editions, blue and yellow The blue version focuses more on the political issues and the yellow concentrates on the emergence of sexual liberation
The lead character is a young Swedish girl who attempts to hold fast to her philosophy of nonviolence, free love, and democratic socialism... But the realities of her life force her to adopt new and unrestrained ideologies
Strangely enough, in Sweden, it was criticized more for its left-wing attitudes than for its audacious display of sex
