This must-see bit of softcore exploitation fluff from the slutty 70s is a hoot if you're in the right mood for it: liquor and substances should be plentiful if you're going to do it right. Settle in with some close friends and let yourself drift through "Laure" (AKA "Forever Emanuelle"). There's enough quirky dialogue and provocative thoughts to make you scratch your head, but the true delight is watching pretty Annie Belle hump her way through the gorgeous Philippine landscapes with hunky Al Cliver (the two fell in love during the filming of this adventure and the chemistry shows). Author Emanuelle Arsan is credited with the screenplay making this as "authentic" as any Emanuelle motion picture to date, and reflects her free-love sensibilities; she even is cast in the role of "Myrte" and offers some wise counsel to Laure before the latter embarks on a symbolic cultural journey that is destined to change her forever. Five stars for Franco Micalizzi's groovy score, too. This one has a budget, great locales, a sort of plot, and lots of nudity and simulated sex for those who enjoy such forays into the hypnotic.
