Plot Summary

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 Molly Malloy

Crazy Credits 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 »
Quotes Vilgot Sjöman: Do you have to have a religious belief to take part in a non-violent movement?
Martin Luther King: No, not necessarily.
Vilgot Sjöman: If you find that a person cannot stand being attacked, what do you do with him? Do you speak to him and explain to him that he cannot be with you any longer?
Martin Luther King: Well, we always discourage those who cannot be subjected to attack - the one who would retaliate with violence - not to participate in a demonstration. The rules are very rigid in a non-violent movement and we feel that a person who can't take it - a person who cannot submit himself to violence if it comes to him and who would retaliate with violence - should not at all participate and so we discourage that person completely.
Anna Lena Lisabet Nyman: I like him. He talks about better things than Palme.
