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

Andy Warhol saw the film in Stockholm, while having an exhibition at Moderna Muséet, he like it a lot, but he didn't get to meet the director Vilgot Sjöman. When Sjöman was in New York to discuss the rating of the screening "Curious Yellow" in the US, the art critic Olle Granath brought Sjöman to the Factory at Union Square, to see Warhol's latest film "Lonesome Cowboys" (1968) and to bring the two together. Not a word was uttered when Sjöman and Warhol met. Sjöman dashed away. The next day Granath made a new effort to get the two directors to meet at a restaurant. But again, Sjöman escaped. This behavior surprised Andy Warhol and he asked Olle Granath: - Is he very shy. See more »

Opening credits as follows: (voiceover, sung) Sandrews makes good films (on screen) "Lena Nyman, theatre student, age 22" (on screen) "Vilgot Sjoeman, director, age 42" (on screen) "Jag aer nyfiken" [I Am Curious], three times (voiceover) Buy our film, the only film that comes in two versions, one yellow, one blue. Same but different, that is true! Unique to view, the one that's blue. Ugly and nice, we repeat it twice: this is the yellow version, yes, the yellow version! (on screen) "en film i gult" [a yellow film] See more »
A home video version has around twenty minutes of politics edited compared to what was seen in the original 35mm. See more »
This is a great film - esp when compared with the sometimes wearisome earnestness of today's politically-minded filmmakers. A film that can so easily combine sex, gender relations, politics and art is a rarity these days. While the bouyant optimism of the 1960's can't be regained, I think we can at least learn a lesson from the film's breezy energy and charm. I don't know what those who label the film "boring" were watching - there's so much packed into it that it never remains the same film for more that 15 min at a time.
