Emmanuelle (Sylvia Kristel), the wife of the French ambassador in Thailand, Jean (Daniel Sarky), is granted the right to love freely (i.e. shag around) whenever she feels like it - & she even has 2 shags in the airplane, when she is flying to Thailand to be with her hubby.

Once in Thailand though she finds little to do, besides from little erotic encounters with young & blunt Marie-Ange (Christine Boisson) & her squash partner Ariane (Jeanne Colletin). Eventually, Marie-Ange finds her a man whom she thinks a suitable lover for Emmanuelle, the old womanizer Mario (Alain Cuny), but Emmanuelle is rather intrigued by female archeologist Bee (Marika Green), whom she one day even follows to a dig somewhere out in the jungle, & there they have amazing sex ... much to the dismay of Jean, who, when he said she could do whatever (whoever) she wants to, actually meant she could do whatever (whoever) he wants to, & in his frustration he hangs out in whorehouses & even shags Ariane.

He needn't have worried though, because afer sex, Bee tosses Emmanuelle away like ... well somehting you toss away ... & Emmanuelle comes back to her hubby, sobbing all the way. & now Jean hooks her up with Mario for good - even though she finds him less than desirable -, who has his own philosophy about erotism, & he soon has her shagged by some natives in an opium den, then offers her to the winner of a Thai-boxing bout, who shags Emmanuelle publicly.

For some reason, Emmanuelle now feels whole.

 

When the movie was first released, it was immensely successful & did push the boundaries of mainstream erotica considerably ... but seen from today's point of view, Emmanuelle is a pretty weak affair (even within the confines of the erotic genre), a superficial blend of perfectly lit naked bodies, cheesy travelogue imagery, & watered-down free-love philosophy, all brought together in a dull, unexciting narrative carried by second-rate actors.

Due to the success of this movie though, a long series of movies for both cinema & tv followed as well as a string of rip-offs (the most [in]famous probably being the much more entertaining Black Emanuelle-series).
