Storyline

At an institute in Manila, researchers and eco-tourists trade stories about the Mara tribe, who live on a remote island and have an annual festival of rebirth in which some of the tribe forget who they are and begin again. Laure is the daughter of the institute's director; she's a free spirit who has captured the fancy of Nicola, a European photographer. After a courtship in which the voyeuristic Nick indulges Laure's exhibitionism and sexual freedom, they set off for Mara land with Gualtier, an anthropologist, and his philosophical lover, Myrte. As they approach the Mara on the night of rebirth, who of the group will actually join the tribe to begin life anew? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Linda Lovelace was originally hired to play the leading role. According to her autobiography, 'Ordeal', after the script was rewritten to be more sexually explicit, she refused and was given a supporting role, but later left the project altogether. See more »

Quotes

Myrte: It's all so beautiful... and yet so strange. I feel a sense of - I don't know - some indefinable menace... A vague sense of fear... like a fear of death... A contraction deep inside my soul that makes me shiver.
Nicola: It's the night air that makes you shiver.
Professor Gualtier Morgan: It's *not* the night air... I too feel what Myrte feels... It's not the night air.

Shuddap and have sex already!
2 February 2006 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I think I watched a highly edited version because it wasn't nearly as graphic as I expected - based on the other reviews that I have heard.

Other than 1. being written by the same person who wrote the original "Emmanuelle" (1974), Emmanuelle Arsan, 2. the lead character being a sexually free spirit, and 3. being set in the exotic locale of Asia, "Laure" doesn't have the same flair as its predecessor.

I just found this film way too talky with philosophical topics that I'm really not that interested in, i.e. the voyeuristic, open relationship between Laure and Nick, "I'm just happy with whatever brings her pleasure"...something along those lines. I cannot relate to this mentality and the film/characters don't really shed any light.

The second half about finding the Mara tribe just seemed as though it were a completely separate film. One that I didn't care for. By that time, I was just hoping that it would turn into a porn so that at least it would keep my interest.

Maybe I just didn't get it.

I'll leave it at that.
