When this film was originally submitted to the BBFC in the UK in 1978, it was a film version that was cut to run at 87 minutes. When re-submitted for video in 1987, however, the uncut soft-core version was submitted with a PAL running time of 94 minutes (which is 97 minutes for film and NTSC running times) and was cut by 15 minutes, 45 seconds PAL running time (16 minutes, 24 seconds film/NTSC running time), bringing the final running time to 77 minutes, 27 seconds PAL (80 minutes, 41 seconds film/NTSC). It has yet to be re-released on DVD in the UK. See more »

Joe D'Amato and Laura Gemser made this flick right over the notorious Emanuelle in America and really took a step back content wise. In the film Emanuelle travels around the world learning different sexual things while sleeping with as many people as possible. The company that released this film released a soft version and a XXX version. This is the soft version and it certainly is soft; meaning, there's very little nudity, which is somewhat shocking considering the subject matter. Not to mention the fact that the previous film went as far as to show a woman stroking a horse!!! I've heard the XXX version of this features some pretty wild stuff but I'll get to it later. Back to this version, it's pretty dull from start to finish, although there's a really bizarre moment with George Eastman (Rabid Dogs, Erotic Nights of the Living Dead) playing a character dressed up as Jesus. He bangs Emanuelle only to have her tell him that he came too quickly. I guess D'Amato isn't a fan of Jesus? The sex scenes aren't erotic, which is the main downfall here.
Emanuelle Around the World (1977) XXX version
* 1/2 (out of 4)
Alternate version of Joe D'Amato's Emanuelle film isn't any better or worse than the soft version I watched a few weeks ago. In the previous review I mentioned that the film's sexual content was rather low even for a softcore film but here's a more extreme version, which features three different scenes. The two orgy sequences are shown with some hardcore scenes here, which isn't anything new. The next added footage serves for the more shocking nature, which was explored in the previous film Emanuelle in America. There's a scene where two girls are sexually tortured with a snake and a German shepard. In the softcore version this was just hinted at but here we get to see a lot more action, which should turn anyone's stomach.
