Anna-Maria:I like Emmanuelle very much... but there are things about you two I can't bring myself to accept. You play around with love.
Jean:If you mean to - to accuse us of sleeping with whomever we want - yes, we play around.
Anna-Maria:Isn't that dangerous?
Jean:No, there's no danger in going to bed with someone, but falling in love with them - that can be dangerous. Let me tell you a secret - I don't love Laura, I love Emmanuelle.
Anna-Maria:Supposing one day you happen to fall in love?
Jean:I'll admit, there's that risk, but... I happen to like risks, as Emmanuelle does.

Easily the best of the erotic lot, 10 July 2003
Author: markgordonpalmer from London

If you want to watch a decent erotic movie that your girlfriend will not slap you in the face for making her watch half way through, buy this.

It's a far better movie than the first, which was pretty dull in places. This one wallows in wild abandon, and carries a feminist message - whatever the men can do, Emmanuelle can do better, and far ruder. In one scene after a long build-up in which you think she is going to plead with a handsome bloke for sex, she waits for him to do the asking. Then tells him where to get off.

One of Alex Cox's favourite movies - Emmanuelle 2 has strong sex for a soft core happening, is genuinely erotic, has good acting and some surreal moments (the animated movie, the guy wandering around with bits of a plane, the man in the locker room with all the tattoos) ..yep - you name it and you'll probably find it here. Even the addictive, romantic piano-led music is better this time around.

Sylvia Kristel gives a great performance - she is the star, easily and by a long way. Come on - this film is good, not smut. Though it has some smut if you want. Just watch with subtitles, not dubbed. PLEASE!
