Emanuelle in Bangkok

original title: Emanuelle nera: Orient reportage

Comparison:

  • US DVD (Severin)
  • Uncut
Release: Oct 26, 2020 - Author: brainbug1602 - Translator: Mike Lowrey - external link: IMDB

The US DVD by Severin was compared to the German Blu-ray by Koch Media.

In her second film, journalist Emanuelle travels to Bangkok to write a report about the king. She befriends Prince Sanit, who is supposed to arrange a meeting with the king, but first he initiates her into the high art of old massage techniques before she and the couple Jimmy and Frances indulge in an opium rush. When Prince Sanit tries in vain to overthrow the king, Emanuelle is in danger. By using her charms, she manages to escape the country. Emanuelle lands in Delhi. There, she gets to know and love Debra, the daughter of the US Consul. Since the issuing of a new passport takes some time, Emanuelle spends some time with her ex-lover Robert, who travels through the desert for archaeological excavations. During an encounter with nomads, Emanuelle gets to know their lifestyle. When Emanuelle receives her passport, she has to make a decision. Does she stay with Debra, Robert or does she prefer her independence?

The second part of the series is also the first collaboration between director Joe D'Amato and leading actress Laura Gemser, who would shoot four more parts of the series. Emanuelle in Bangkok is a classic softerotic film in which Emanuelle discovers the joys of love with various men and women. The prince falls for her, as does masseuse Gee, whose massage technique consists mainly of rubbing herself naked on Emanuelle. This is followed by a sightseeing tour including a visit to a cockfight, but then Emanuelle has to leave the country after a gang rape. In Delhi, she first meets Debra, then Janett, the uptight fiancée of her ex-lover Robert, loosens up a bit before she has to make a decision at the airport. The attractive Laura Gemser, the beautifully staged locations and the brilliant soundtrack by Nico Fidenco make the film flow pleasantly past you.

The film is available uncut on the German Blu-ray by Koch Media and is even a bit longer than on the US DVD by Severin. On the Severin DVD, the opening and closing credits drop off qualitatively compared to the rest of the movie. The scenes are from a French version and were cut into the movie. A comparison with the German Blu-ray showed that during the opening credits, some short takes were lost on the US DVD. The scenes are unspectacular and mostly show Emanuelle or Robert walking through Venice before they finally meet.
