CQ is a 2001 film written and directed by Roman Coppola. It was screened out of competition at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival.

It is an homage to 1960s European spy/sci-fi spoofs like Barbarella and Danger: Diabolik and the documentary spoof David Holzman's Diary. The cinematography is done by Robert D. Yeoman. The film stars Jeremy Davies, Jason Schwartzman, Giancarlo Giannini, Gérard Depardieu, Billy Zane, and Angela Lindvall. Barbarella and Danger: Diabolik star John Phillip Law also appears.

The film features an original soundtrack by French electronic band mellow, which was released on Emperor Norton Records.

CQ was released by United Artists.

Plot

Set in Paris in 1969, young film editor Paul Ballard (Jeremy Davies) is currently working on a science-fiction, adventure film called "Dragonfly", written and directed by renowned director Andrezej (Gérard Depardieu). Andrezej is utterly infatuated with his film's star, Valentine (Angela Lindvall), a young American whom he discovered at a political rally some time ago. While working on the film, Paul, an aspiring filmmaker himself, regularly borrows cameras and other equipment from work in order to film his own project: a documentary of Paul's own self-reflections. Although Dragonfly is an obvious homage to Barbarella, CQ occurs in 1969, rather than 1968, when Barbarella was filmed - possibly to allow for references to be made to the large scale general strikes occurring in May 1968 in France.

In "Dragonfly", Valentine plays a sexy freelance super-agent who lives in a spaceship perched on top of the Eiffel Towermarker in Paris of the future, and undertakes assignments for the "World Council". Dragonfly's latest mission is to stop a revolutionary leader known as "Mr. E" (Billy Zane) who is based on the "far-out" side of the Moon. The World Council only reluctantly turns for help to Dragonfly, mostly because she charges huge sums of money - which the council literally showers her with.
