Critic Reviews for Emmanuelle
Film is a series of glossy images and appears more a come-on for the civil service than for femme lib.
Very glossy, very French voyage into sexual discovery that mingles cliché and elegant posturing with an attempt to broaden the horizons of the sex film.
It's a relief, during a time of cynicism in which sex is supposed to sell anything, to find a skin flick that's a lot better than it probably had to be.
Though it is more historically significant than any other softcore porno ever made, it just isn't that memorable an exploitation film.
Audience Reviews for Emmanuelle
Boring! Not at all the sensual steamy romance that it says it's supposed to be. I wasn't impressed by any of the actors, and I hated the story. It's just so boring!
The film is very loose when it comes to a plot, but Sylvia Kristel is undoubtedly gorgeous, the scenery looks spectacular and the film is worth something for the milestone it represented as to how female sexuality was becoming more and more liberating.
I didn't know they had an edited version of this movie. I have the unedited version. Thank goodness, too.
