Emmanuelle

Lush cinematography, marvellous acting (in particular from Sylvia Kristel) and genuinely erotic scenes tastefully directed… Just Jaeckin! It’s the same badly dubbed, funny-for-about-five-minutes shite it’s always been, with ‘Ooh look! Fanny smoke rings! Chortle!’ tired businessman’s humour very much to the delapidated fore. Best bits of this sorry cash cow – sorry, ‘significant cultural event – were the original UK trailers, as voiced by Katie Boyle.

    Also inspired the worst Carry On film ever, Carry On Emmanuelle, and numerous lame British imitators.

    Winner of the “Most grotesque misuse of a photograph of Paul Newman in a magazine” award 1974.

    There were about a hundred sequels, too, weren’t there? Most of them straight to video by the 80s. I say sequels, I don’t expect anyone was watching them for the story.
