French director Just Jaeckin produced EMMANUELLE, a revolutionary film
that introduced a sexual narrative in drama (previously, sexual themes
were relegated almost exclusively to comedies). Instantly, it was a European
hit and spawned numerous imitations. Italy's San Nicola Productions assigned
in-house director Bitto Albertini a project which would 'be similar
to Emmanuelle' and would star Laura Gemser, an Indonesian starlet
who had been featured as a supporting actress in the original Jaeckin
film. After the instant success of BLACK EMANUELLE, the studio handed
the franchise to Joe D'Amato who had convinced them to take it into a
more exploitative realm.
Gemser plays Mae Jordan, an internationally acclaimed photographer known
as Emanuelle. She flies into Africa for a photographic tour and stays
at the home of Ann and Gianni Danieli. Before long, Emanuelle is being
pursued by both Anna and Gianni as well as their friends. However, while
perfectly willing to share her sexual charms, she is reluctant to get
emotionally involved with anyone.
Italian film; widescreen format, totally uncut version (92 min.), in English
language, DVD encoded for ALL REGION NTSC WORLD FORMAT, playable on any
