Emmanuelle IV
22 October 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews Last Wednesday at the age of 60 Sylvia Kristel deceased. She will be remembered for its successful game, her paintings and her powerful autobiography. Plus Minus 58 (TV) films she has to her name. With major productions as The Concorde ... Airport '79 and Private Lessons, she remains best known for the Emmanuelle series. A huge success formula that was milked. Eventually these films degenerated into flawless b-movies. The one to one with three parts for the enthusiast perfectly palatable. Beautiful naked, rich sites and addition Kristel Umberto Orsini example that also could occur in Visconti's The Damned and Ludwig.

Part four is a different story. That part is downright obscure. Perhaps even more obscure as many Emmanuelle rip or programs created by Joe D'Amato. Many of his titles (Emanuelle with 'm') are polished, with extras and reissued by the precious Blue Underground.

Definitely something to this site even pay attention to it. This beautiful lot of fancy reissue is not played by Emmanuelle IV. The film has the title role Sylvia Kristel top stand, the producers had not thought that are the star of the film would be. They devised a diabolical plan to the 32 year old Kristel in exchange for the 24-year-old fashion model Mia Nygren. Undoubtedly the idea with the new star Just to continue the series.

But in part four first had eaten it both ways: either as Kristel Nygren present as ester. To the old Emmanuelle come to the new one that invented Kristel in the film a full body and had to undergo face-lift. The scenario motivates the drive of the character of Kristel order it do to them as an annoying boyfriend can come. Logical. Almost happy we see her in the office of the plastic surgeon, with a stylus subtly indicates what "can be off" and "what can be lifted.

The successful applicant must have been less pleasant scene anyway. Moments later, the time has come: Silvia is transformed into Mia. The film is less than fifteen minutes on the road and that's a bit too early to Kristel outside the film to. New diabolical plan of the producers: it is the imaginary love coach of the New Emanuelle. And hop: Both ladies are back on the canvas. The blootigheid is especially Nygren. Sylvia Kristel, the rattan chair may exchange it for an office chair. She is now finally coach.

Where his script see prices go? Probably the creator disillusioned industrial out-office. From their hand came into the cinema not much more justified. Silvia Kristel remained stuck with the legacy they now suddenly no longer Emmanuelle is ..? Of course not. In part five, she just returned. Fortunately. For all the films are not very good. Sylvia Kristel is super nice in game and who she is.
