Storyline

[American version.] Emmanuelle has a streak of bad luck that starts when she is stripped by a mob of adoring fans at the Cannes Film Festival. Her rotten luck continues when the dictator of a banana republic uses the screening of one of her films as a pretext to get her into his country. Our heroine finds herself admitted into his harem as a slave. [Roger Corman fans may be able to identify stock action footage used in the American version.] Written by Eric Conrad <econrad@magnus.ohio-state.edu>

Trivia

In 1985, ASP films (owner of the Emmanuelle films since the first official feature) approached Polish director Walerian Borowczyk (known for his heavily erotic art films) to helm the latest Emmanuelle feature, and he accepted, intrigued by the idea of giving a new spin to the series and character. "She is free, without prejudice, and she has confidence in herself" he told France's "Cinema" magazine in the April 87 issue. Once in production, however, he was to be in conflict with his producers; first over the casting of his lead actress, and later for his abstract imagery and script. See more »

Quotes

Emmanuelle: What's the matter? Why are you so shy? Have you never seen a naked woman before?
Charles D. Foster: No, I mean yes. I have seen a lot of naked women before.

A mammiferous disaster
12 January 1999 | by artie-8See all my reviews

If your thing is frequent viewing of all varieties of colossal mammillae and the constant fornication the heroine engages in with every Tom, Dick and Harry (and I emphasize Dick.) don't miss this movie!!! If you have an IQ anything above moron, avoid it like the plague. The acting is beyond atrocious . The story line? You mean there was one? This film is such an accumulation of excrement that no professional would review it .All the participants must have used phoney names. If anyone was paid , it was an abomination! To be fair though, Dominique Gabrielle does have one hell of a figure. It is the crime of the century that they made her act.
