Product Description

Laura Gemser reprises her sinful, sexually-charged character, Emanuelle, in one box set which features the lovely star in Emanuelle in Bangkok (Gabrielle Tinti. 1976/87 min.), Emanuelle Around the World (Ivan Rassimov. 1977/102 min.) and Sister Emanuelle (1977/88 min.). 4 DVDs. Color/NR/widescreen.

Black Emanuelle's Box contains a sexy selection of Black Emanuelle films starring Laura Gemser, who isn't actually black, but scrumptious nonetheless. Three films out of several directed by Joe D'Amato were chosen from this sexploitation series made to cash in on the success of the unrelated French erotic film Emmanuelle. Here, Laura Gemser stars as photojournalist Mae Jordan, aka Emanuelle, who travels the world wielding her beauty for inside scoops. In Emanuelle In Bangkok and Emanuelle Around the World, she travels to Thailand, India, Italy, and more, aiming to expose various corrupt slave rings, including a sex slave circle, and a transcendental meditation cult run by a horny scam artist. Sister Emanuelle features a reformed Emanuelle, who renounces her holiness after a young Catholic schoolgirl seduces her in a medieval tower. These films succeed only because of Gemser as seductress, portraying a career-focused feminist who isn't embarrassed to admit her love of sex, thereby typifying a woman from the free-love era. It's a stretch to actually call Emmanuelle an empowered character, though ultimately these softcore films aren't deeply political. Some juicy sensual scenes, such as the sponge bath and Thai massage sequences in Emanuelle in Bangkok, make these slow films worthwhile, though the snail's pacing in each can get boring. Wonderful soundtracks by composer Nico Fidenco also add style throughout, and an added interview with Fidenco sheds light on the Golden Age of Italian movie music. In this set, a CD containing all three soundtracks gives additional impetus to give Black Emanuelle a new lease on life. —Trinie Dalton

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Italian B-movies!!! May 15, 2007
By Bertram
If you are into this kind of movies you should buy them! I'm very into this kind of movies and I waited a long time for some dvd company going to bring out those movies. For years now I'm a big Joe D' Amato fan, and really like his films. The first film: Emanuelle in Bangkok is his first entry in the Black Emanuelle series and is very well done. Story is quit simple, but the film is shot on beautifull locations, and has a few good erotic scenes and is here first presented in it's full uncut version of 92 minutes and in very good picture and sound quality! the second movie: Emanuelle Around the World, is D' Amato's thirt entry in the series and is a good follower on Emanuelle in America. This one is also first presented in a longer version then before, the earlier longest versions ran about 94 minutes and this on runs about 97 minutes. Severin films also presented a full uncut euro version from this film wich runs 102 minutes. But this version is also very amusing, and is also presented in perfect picture and sound quality. The thirt picture, Sister Emanuelle is the only film wich is not directed by D' Amato, and is not as amusing as the other two. But though a nice entry in the Emanuelle series, but only for die-hard fans. A 25 track soundtrack compilation is also included in the boxset, wich contains music from; Black Emanuelle, Emanuelle in bangkok and Emanuelle Around the World. For fans a great boxset and fitted nice together with Emanuelle in America and Emanuelle and the Last cannibals. On the end of this year Severin films will release the last in the series; Black Emanuelle, White Emanuelle and D'Amato's Emanuelle and the white Slave trade.

There are 3 dvds in the package. The first one was ok, the last two were silly even for pictures of this genre. Enough said,
