Storyline

Emmanuelle dreams of being a movie star. In reality, she works as a stripper in a sleazy nightclub where she is forced by her manager and boyfriend Frank to sleep with the wealthy clients. When she catches him inflagranti with a colleague, she finally summons up the courage to run away in the hope of making her dream come true. At the Cannes film festival, she meets a movie producer. Though he's more interested in her body than her acting skills, he gives her a leading role in a cheap porn movie, which is a box-office flop. Left alone and unable to pay her bills she prostitutes herself until Frank finally arrives and pulls her out of her despair. Written by Anonymous

When female nudity is boring even to heterosexuals
6 February 2008 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately it would be impossible to "spoil" the plot of this movie for readers inasmuch as there is no plot. Stripper/prostitute Emmanuelle (Olinka Hardiman) leaves her cheating boyfriend in order to attain her dream of stardom, or at least movie roles, at the film festival in Cannes. The film consists solely of three or four "soft-porn" sequences, much wriggling and moaning, with the vast majority of the film being "filler" of Emmanuelle walking around Cannes to an idiotic voice over about her movie aspirations. There is minimal dialog and consequently all of the walk around scenes are interchangeable except for the voice over. Was that Emmanuelle meeting the journalist? Or Emmanuelle meeting the actor? Or Emmanuelle meeting the producer? Who can tell since all the scenes are the same.

I had never heard of Olinka Hardiman, before seeing this film, although IMDb shows an extensive "adult" career. I don't know how you would classify her "performance" since, with only limited dialog, in consists of either walking around Cannes or rolling around in a bed. She was moderately attractive, undressed, but this movie was clearly made before "adult" performers discovered the gym and "toned" up.

Technical credits were mediocre at best.

Personally I found both the film and Olinka Hardiman boring. Its interest lies only with those "completists" interested in either Olinka Hardiman's nudity or the "Emmanuelle" series. However I doubt that this film has any relationship to the "Emmanuelle" series except for opportunistic exploitation of the title.
