Storyline

Emmanuelle is a beautiful young model and lives in Bangkok together with her husband Jean, who's several years older. She likes him because he's taught her much, and he likes her because she's learning so well - and wants to often. Both are very tolerant in matters of extramarital affairs, so he doesn't mind the young Marie-Ange coming over every so often, although she obviously wants more than talk from his wife. But Emmanuelle is more fascinated by the older Bee, and joins her on a trip into the jungle. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

User Reviews

 
A pleasant touch of sensuality in this film that so many of the modern day films lack.
12 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Emmanuelle was the first adult film I ever viewed and it delighted me. It was erotic, but it had the added element of sensuality. I believe the element of sensuality is what made it so good.... For a woman, sensuality is an important factor. The fact that Emmanuelle wasn't hardcore, nor was it nasty made for better viewing. Nor was it harsh or ugly as many porn films tend to be. Too many of the films made today lack sensuality, they are cold and obviously put on. Although,I found the story was a bit odd, it was exotic. Exotic in the setting, exotic with it's use of dim lighting. Sylvia Kristel was beautiful and natural in this film. In the world of erotica, it's definitely a classic and worth seeing.
