Trivia

The original film version of Diamonds of Kilimandjaro (1983) ran at 83 minutes. However, the French censors did not allow the film to air in France. To bypass the censors, the French Production company Eurociné deleting several scenes and sent Olivier Mathot to shoot different footage with the same actors (and also used new actors to add a few characters). The film was then repackaged as "Les Diamants du Kilimanjaro" and ran 95 minutes long. This film was then exported around the world, but was still never shown in France. The original Spanish version (83 minutes) is only available in Spain. See more »

Tarzan-style trash, from Jess Franco
20 May 2009 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

Jess Franco was a busy man in 1983; directing no less than thirteen films. Even if he was directing non-stop, that still works out at more than one film per month. I can't profess to have seen all of Franco's 1983 films; in fact, I only saw this one and the truly awful Grave of the Living Dead; but on the basis of the two films, I would say that less than a month for writing, filming and producing is about right. The film largely takes place in the jungle and is effectively a remake of the classic Tarzan story, although in this case Tarzan is a woman called Diana. Well...more of a girl, actually, as actress Katja Bienert was just sixteen at the time of filming! The lead actress' age doesn't seem to have put Franco off either, as she spends most of the film topless. To the film's credit, the jungle setting is rather well used; and despite being rather dull, the film at least doesn't descent into absolute boredom in the same way that a lot of films like this one have done. The ending is rather amusing - it's like Franco got so far and realised he'd ran out of film stock so just called for a wrap...though the film does run for over ninety minutes, so perhaps it was intended to end abruptly. Anyway, this film isn't really worth seeing unless you're a die-hard Franco fan.
