I am Curious (Yellow) is a blend of fiction and documentary where all of the performers play [small variations on] themselves, as themselves.

***************************
I am Curious (Yellow) is a blend of fiction and documentary where all of the performers play [small variations on] themselves, as themselves. The movie made waves for its open examination of naïve prurience in its native Sweden and had to be fought for in court. (Originally banned as pornographic material, it was objected to on an artistic level.) Unfortunately, it’s not a very interesting examination at all (I must admit, for something of a sexual topicality, I was looking forward to it far more on that basis) and this is only the first version. As an alternative to its agitprop, the director re-cut all of the footage to create a completely different tale known as I am Curious (Blue), but to my knowledge it has not been made available in the US—at least outside of a theatrical release in 1970. If it were up to me, I’d stick them together and re-title it as I am Bored (Blue). In its social context, the movie is far more understood and appreciated, but I’ll wait until I can see the alternate version until I try to view this one again.

Directed by Vilgot Sjöman. With Lena Nyman, Sjöman, Börje Ahlstedt and Peter Lindgren.

Final Verdict: D.
