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 »

This is what people refer to when they're talking of "TRASH"
2 November 2000 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Ummm. A Jess Franco-movie from the early 80's. So what would you expect? Right: actors incapable of acting, incredibly dumb dialogue and a whole lot of joyful nudity (and downright disgusting sex scenes with totally unattractive guys and girls). Which I regard as absolutely worthwhile and entertaining - but that's just my personal opinion. The story? Story?? oh, well, it's kind of a remake of TARZAN, plus some adventure- and cannibal-stuff. But basically it's about seeing Katja Bienert nude, and it works when it comes down to that. Just realize: she was about 15 or 16 when this film was made, and she was really not very shy. Anyway: go get this one if you're able to find it, but be prepared to feel the urge to throw it in the garbage can once you've seen it. P.S.: This film has been re-issued in 1999 by the german label X-RATED CULT MOVIES, but with a different title: MONDO CANNIBALE 4. Obviously for marketing-reasons. Cause you'd better not expect to watch one of the infamous Euro-Cannibal-flics when you put this in. Franco has done better than this. Katja Bienert has, too. But the jungle has never looked more corny. So ... you get the idea. I like it.
