Storyline

After years of abuse at the hands of her husband, a woman, Emmanouella, is pushed to the breaking point. She hires a hitman to do in her husband, but just when she thinks her troubles are at an end, the assassin blackmails her. As her husband's business partner struggles to prove her guilt, and as the hitman continues to threaten her new found security, Emmanouella struggles to keep her name clear and to keep her naive stepdaughter from becoming tangled in the web of danger she has created.

Did You Know?

Trivia

This is one of several films made to cash in on the success of the Black Emanuelle film series created by Bitto Albertini and continued by Joe D'Amato and Bruno Mattei. Though the film stars Laura Gemser (the star of the Black Emanuelle series) and she plays a character named Emanuelle (Emmanouella), it has nothing to do with the photojournalist character Emanuelle from the original series. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the film, the depth of Mario's tan, as well as the length of his hair changes considerably back and forth. See more »

Alternate Versions

In the video version released by Mark V Entertainment, a huge chunk of film is missing. It cuts from Emanuelle and Tommy's love scene directly to Mario holding Ilona's head in the bidet. The omission of this footage seems to come from print damage rather than censorship. See more »

If you don't mind sex mixed with more than a little violence ....
30 September 2005 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

Complete nonsense with awful dialogue but above average as a sex movie. Gemser, of course is as lovely as ever, but given a little too much to do here and what with the rambling of the script she has little chance, even if she fares better than most who seem to take it in turns to under act and over act. Taking the storyline seriously is a bad mistake but the many and varied sex sequences are fine. If you don't mind sex mixed with more than a little violence that is. Here we get rape and near rape, an extraordinary scene where a medallion wearing gentleman disturbs a woman in his flat, knocks her about a bit and then considers that sex would be a good idea and the couple fall into each other's arms, and other almost jaw dropping moments. Unbelievable shots of Gemser nude astride a horse deep in the sea which may or may not be supposed to contrast with a later rape of a young girl in the shallow surf!
