Description: Emmanuelle, the young wife of a diplomat, arrives in Bangkok to visit her husband. She is immediately pressurised by her new entourage to show a more liberal attitude towards sex. Her husband is apparently keen that she uses the opportunity to pursue extramarital affairs, so she begins by having a lesbian relationship with a female archaeologist, Bee. When that leads nowhere, Emmanuelle is placed in the care of sex guru Mario, who takes it upon himself to explain to her the meaning of eroticism…
When it was released in the mid 1970s, Emmanuelle was something of a cinematic revolution – the first soft core erotic film to achieve major box office success.
When the French government failed to have the film banned, it became an overnight success in France, attracting a record-breaking nine million audience.
It was no less successful abroad, particularly in the United States, where it was marketed as an art-house movie. The film was followed by what seems like an interminable series of sequels and spin-offs (of ever-decreasing quality) and is considered by some a masterpiece of erotic cinema.
The film is based on the controversial auto-biographical novel by Emmanuelle Arsan. The character of Emmanuelle is played by Sylvia Kristel who, despite obviously having no acting ability whatsoever, appears to suit her role surprisingly well. The film’s main selling point is the evocative cinematography, which captures the beauty of the Thailand location and uses this very effectively to support the other (more predictable) erotic images.
Francis Lai’s score, including the catchy Emmanuelle theme sung by Pierre Bachelet, also adds to the film's charm.
