I Am Curious (Yellow)
It was a landmark film that helped define the emergent change in Swedish film of the 1960s. Like a French New Wave film, the movie used jump cuts, featured a story not structured in the usual, Hollywood structure.
The film includes scenes of nudity and sexual intercourse. In 1969, the film was banned in the United States for being pornography. After three court battles the Supreme Court legalized the movie by overturning the anti-obscenity law that regulated motion pictures.
In 1968 Sjöman released a second "version" of the movie titled I Am Curious (Blue) which tells mostly the same story, but with different footage.
Initially, I Am Curious (Blue) and I Am Curious (Yellow) were meant to be one 3 1/2 hour film. This is revealed in director Vilgot Sjöman 's book "I Was Curious: Diary of the Making of a Film" (published in English by Grove Press in 1968).
