Watch Emmanuelle 5 - Alternative Versions.
Emmanuelle 5 is Polish surrealist Walerian Borowczyk's penultimate
theatrical feature, a film who's merits are hotly debated among cult
and art film lovers. Some see the movie as nothing more than a
commercial sell-out, others as an interesting addition to his body of
work. It's also the last quality entry of the official Emmanuelle
franchise. Adding to the confusion is the fact that there are at least
three versions: the theatrical European version, the heavily edited US
version (including new scenes produced by Roger Corman!), and a
European home video version including extra hard-core scenes that
feature none of the principal cast.
This time round Emmanuelle is portrayed by Monique Gabrielle, who is,
in a jarring change, a bleach blonde American actress. Never mind that
the character is supposed to be French, it kind of works, mainly
because Ms. Gabrielle has the sense to play the role with just the
right nod and wink. And while no actress came close to Sylvia Kristel's
beauty, charm and class, Monique makes the role her own. Since the film
dispenses with any previous character back story, here she portrays
Emmanuelle as a single, free-spirited woman who makes erotic art- films
and runs a dance studio out of her beloved loft in Paris.
The movie opens with a "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" style
montage of Cannes, with a documentary-like narration giving us an
overview of the famous film festival held there every year. It seems
Emmanuelle is premiering her latest film, Love Express, in Cannes...
causing a scandal in the process. In fact, we first see her in this
film within a film, in a beautifully shot sequence on a set of craggy
rocks overlooking the roaring ocean. At a press conference later, she
must defend her film to close-minded reporters who accuse her of
creating pornography. It's all obviously a reference to Borowczyk's own
experiences at the very same festival. After the Q&A, Emmanuelle's
producer, a smarmy French type, introduces her to Prince Rajid, a
wealthy sheik who own's the fictional Arab country of Benglagistan.
He's apparently obsessed with Emmanuelle and wants to premiere the film
in his homeland.
Outside, an adoring throng of male fans awaits Emmanuelle, all
desperate for a touch of the famed beauty. Things quickly escalate and
soon the mob is stripping her of every last article of clothing,
sending her jumping onto a stranger's departing boat for safety. Her
unwitting saviour is Charles D. Foster, a nerdy, but handsome young
millionaire who disapproves of Emmanuelle's erotic films. Sparks fly,
and before you know it, love is in the air. Is a happy ending in the
works? Perhaps, but not before a journey back onto the Love Express and
Prince Rajid kidnaps Emmanuelle, putting her in his harem.
The version most people know is the English language American edit
(which in addition to the new Corman scenes also utilizes Borowczyk's
outtakes), perhaps the reason Emmanuelle 5 is dismissed by some. The
new scenes, while amusing, just don't gel with the traditional European
style that people expect from Emmanuelle films. While the original
release of Emmanuelle 5 certainly doesn't lack a sense of humor,
Corman's New Horizon version goes over the top with campy 80s comedy,
seeming more like a companion to Bachelor Party (also starring Ms.
Gabrielle) and other films of that ilk. It's also clumsily edited - the
transition between film quality is jarring. What they attempt is
admirable (give the story more cohesion, tighten the pacing), but
apparently they didn't even bother doing a final film print edit, it
was all put together on 3/4 video with a series of bad fade-ins and
bleeds. Apparently they opted for a quick home video release and
couldn't be bothered to finish it off right. This version is also only
available in a terrible full-screen DVD transfer.
If you can track down a copy of Borowczyk's original theatrical edit of
Emmanuelle 5, do so. It's a smart, interesting film well worth owning,
and has a lot more going for it than Monique Gabrielle's bare breasts.
