A female journalist decides to traverse the Amazon Jungle after going undercover in a mental asylum and witnessing a disturbing behavior from a rescued white woman, who she believes was raised by a cannibalistic tribe long thought extinct.
Emmanuelle is a beautiful young model and lives in Bangkok together with her husband Jean, who's several years older. She likes him because he's taught her much, and he likes her because she's learning so well - and wants to often. Both are very tolerant in matters of extramarital affairs, so he doesn't mind the young Marie-Ange coming over every so often, although she obviously wants more than talk from his wife. But Emmanuelle is more fascinated by the older Bee, and joins her on a trip into the jungle.Written by

Emmanuelle ran for 13 years in one cinema on the Champs-Elysees, Paris, with posters of the beautiful star, Sylvia Kristel, who was not French as most people thought but in fact Dutch, sitting topless in a wicker chair, fingering a string of pearls. See more »
(at around 1 min) When Emmanuelle is on the plane, she closes the blind fully and curls up. A fellow passenger sits down and embraces her. In addition to the high spotlight on her cleavage, there's a bright light coming from the direction of said covered window. See more »
I wonder if I've been dreaming for quite some now.
It's because we're abroad. As exiles, we're reduced to futile pastimes. Napoleon passed the time on St Helena counting his spoons. One mustn't become resigned at any price. Here in Bangkok if you say that, everyone will agree. But if you talk of sex, then you will have sinned against our ancestral taboos. l'm a collector. It's a very respected occupation, collecting. I collect situations.

For its original UK cinema release the film suffered BBFC cuts to reduce the sex scenes, a masturbation sequence and to completely remove a club scene where a woman smokes a cigarette through her vagina, and the film was withdrawn in 1978 by censor James Ferman to make an additional cut, removing the entire scene of Emmanuelle being raped in an opium den. The 1990 video release saw many of the cinema cuts restored although 1 minute 25 secs of cuts were retained to the cigarette and rape scenes, and the 2001 Momentum DVD release saw the cigarette scene restored and the cuts to the rape scene reduced to 38 secs. The film was finally passed fully uncut for the 2007 Optimum DVD. See more »
"Emmanuelle" is an elegant, excellently photographed movie, but too often rolls in a syrupy pretension
It is about a young, French woman who joins her husband in Bangkok There much of Emmanuelle's allure is that she isn't shy about her body, or even afraid to engage in sexual activity in semipublic places
There are a number of rousing, lesbian meetings very typical of French cinema, coupled with encounters with handsome, sensitive men who enjoy superficial lovemaking The film really deals in sensual images and an over-blown, continuous repeating of its erotic philosophy There is sensual intimacy between Emmanuelle and the other women that is rare in the cinema
My favorite moment when teen-ager Christine Boisson comes upon the nude Sylvia Kristel asleep Without embarrassment, she leans forward and unusually caresses gently and affectionately Emmanuelle's breast with her finger
