Comparison between the European Version (taken from German TV) with the French VHS Version from Carrere Video (which is a Hardcore Version of the movie).
About the Movie
In the 5th part of the Emmanuelle series, Emanuelle meets the millionaire Foster (who she later has sex with) at a promotion tour of her new movie "Love Express" in Cannes. At prince Rajid's invitation, she goes to the Carribbean by plane. Rajid has a huge harem and wants Emmanuelle to be a part of it. When she refuses, Rajid jails her...
About the Versions
There are 3 different versions of the movie. The first is Walerian Borowczyk's cut with a run time of about 78 minutes for the european market (which all German releases are based on). Then there exists a Hardcore Version of the movie which was only released in France and which has a lack of certain plot lines. Last but not least, Roger Corman made a version exclusively for the US market. Several scenes were newly shot and included, others were cut out so that it is an almost entirely different version that is only loosely based on the actual movie.
Most of the cuts are hardcore scenes. The pictures are therefore kept "soft".
