One of the most popular and controversial films in Swedish history, I Am Curious brought the sexual revolution to Sweden's silver screen. While much of the media hype centered on the film's scandalous content, the film's blending of documentary and fictional footage was equally shocking for Swedish audiences. Content-wise, the film's more controversial parts include the defacement of a photograph of Franco and a sequence where a young couple has sex in front of the royal palace. A film in two

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Today we can get our sex with less punishment, which is progress of a sort.
The mix of frivolousness and moral reproach, though, seems altogether '60s, rather than particularly Swedish.
The movie is simply, basically, boring. It is stupid and slow and uninteresting.
It is an intellectually stimulating work with a smart, comical atmosphere, and it sustains its appeal through the perky modern attitude exhibited by Nyman, even when she has her clothing on.
As much a bore as its predecessor, the "Yellow" movie.
What was once considered audacious and experimental now seems rather quaint and artistically pretentious.
I suspect that I am Curious (Yellow) will remain largely, well, a curiosity.
At once humorously annoying, politically dynamic, and clever the film is a reasonably enjoyable two hours.
Rarely very stimulating to watch, but significant in the evolution of audiences', critics' and censors' attitudes to film.
As a time capsule piece, it's fascinating, yet as a stand-alone film, it's only intermittently interesting.
I Am Curious--Yellow is entertaining for its novelty, and exhaustive in its political intent. Its notorious reputation (attributed only to its frank sexuality), however, is misleading.
the Criterion Collection breathes life into its creaky celluloid with the definitive preservation and a cornucopia of historical background material
Is it art, or just Euro-porn? By the end of this mess, you really won't care.
Once notorious, now merely boring
