The Inconfessable Orgies of Emmanuelle
inconfesables de Emmanuelle, also known as Emmanuelle Exposed, is a
Spanish-language film from Jess
Franco. He did not make it intending it to be an Emmanuelle film.
In fact, the lead character was not even called Emmanuelle in the original sound track,
but the producers understood that the word "Emmanuelle" at the time was a
secret piece of film jargon that meant "guaranteed to make money." The
renaming of the character did make some sense. It's the story of a classy
young French woman who was living in a foreign country with her husband, and
wished to be sexually free. When you think about it, the original Emmanuelle
film was all about an expatriate wife learning to be sexually free, so Jess
actually made more of an Emmanuelle film than he thought.
Emmanuelle (Muriel Montossé) and her husband are very much in love and
in lust. In the opening sequence, they make love in public in a wax museum.
The problems start when they and a lesbian widow friend (Asunción Calero) go
to a disco owned by the nobleman who narrates the story. Carmen Carrión is stripping on stage, and
invites the audience to come fondle her. A drunken Emmanuelle takes her up on
it, starting a chain of events best called musical beds among Emmanuelle, the
stripper, Emmanuelle's husband, the lesbian widow and the nobleman. Even
though a lesbian affair and a brutal double rape nearly split the couple up,
Emmanuelle remained committed to allowing herself to take pleasure whenever
and wherever she felt like it. The film
is nearly non-stop nudity and simulated sex.
If you are not familiar with our grading system, you need to
explanation, because the grading is not linear. For example, by
our definition, a
C is solid and a C+ is a VERY good movie. There are very few Bs
and As. Based on our descriptive system, this film is a:
It is top-notch genre fare. This is vintage softcore erotica, and would normally deserve a C, but there
are several plusses elevating this particular release to a top-of-the-line C+. First, it
has never been available in the US before. Second, it is a Jess Franco film,
and Jess has a following - including me. Third, it is in the sub-genre of fake
Emmanuelle sequels, another collectors niche. Finally, it has lots of lovely
nudity presented in great video quality.
