A Movie Of Many Different Titles
10 December 2003 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

Not much plot worth describing here, but the video version of this movie I have is loaded with nudity and is titled "Naked Paradise" (on VCI Home Video). The number of titles this movie goes under is probably more interesting than the movie itself. I see where an unfortunate individual who commented on the film rented this under the title "Emmanuelle In Egypt". Only problem is that this is not an "Emmanuelle" movie. Clever and misleading video company that was! "Naked Paradise" is a much better title for this movie about various relationships (sexual and otherwise) between family members and others milling about on an island without much to do except fornicate or think about fornicating. Not a deep, spiritual movie by any means.
