Emmanuelle (1974)

Emmanuelle (1974, FRA) C-94m. ** D: Just Jaeckin. Starring Sylvia Kristel, Alain Cuny, Marika Green, Daniel Sarky, Jeanne Colletin. A classic of erotic cinema, this soft-core sex film inspired countless imitations. Virginal Kristel moves to her diplomat-husband in Thailand and is introduced to the pleasures of the bodily kind. Not exactly compelling, but quite well-made, with a moody score by Pierre Bachelet and Francis Lai and a convincing, star-making performance by beauty Kristel. Based on the novel by Emmanuelle Arsan. Followed by six sequels.
