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 »

It´s a Franco! Any questions?!?
11 February 2002 | by DJ InfernoSee all my reviews

Another no budget-shot which is full of the nudity of some quite plain women as well as a not-existing plot and a set decoration that seems to be taken from the botanic garden of a zoo. In other words: Ruggero Deodato´s film looks like the "Citizen Kane" of the cannibal movies, because any acting, storyline, suspense, dramatic, or even cannibalism... are totally missing in Franco´s flick! There´s some animal documentary footage brought on, but the style doesn´t fit to the rest of the film what causes some real laughable impressions! And former German sex starlet Katja Bienert is only ridiculous in the role of Tarzan-like girl Liana, her scream sounds like a drunk gorilla! Don´t be fooled, folks! Even Franco can do it better! Only for those a must-see who think they should have seen all of this director - a lot of work in view of the 176 films Franco shot!!
