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.
this movie is not porn, it was not meant to be porn, and unless my uncle runs for president of the world it should never be considered porn.
now that that issue was sorted out, i can say i thoroughly recommend this film, as it’s issues are still widely available. it’s funny, the acting is great and it raises serious(curious) questions.
i can’t fully understand why this film was so mistreated, probably this is why i plan to never visit the us. Lena is the true pioneer of the modern riot-grrrl movement, confusion, curiosity and wit are her main attributes, she is occasionally angry, but aren’t we all?
