Jag är nyfiken is a Swedish drama from 1967. It was released to English-speaking countries as I Am Curious (Yellow). It had a sequel, I Am Curious (Blue), which had some different scenes and a different political slant.

Lena Nyman, aged 20, 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 United States while its seizure by Customs was appealed.


This film provides examples of:

  • As Himself: Everyone except Peter Lindgren as Rune Nyman, and Chris Wahlström as Rune's woman.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Lena, of course.

Alternative Title(s): I Am Curious Yellow
