Synopsis: Her name evokes visions of lush sensual discovery and the extremes of forbidden ecstasy. She is Emmanuelle, and these are the films that changed the look and feel of erotic cinema forever. The incomparably beautiful Sylvia Kristel stars in this landmark adult trilogy that begins with the sumptuous Emmanuelle , continues with the explosive Emmanuelle 2 , and climaxes in the daring final chapter Goodbye Emmanuelle , which is available only in this collection. Actually, the producers of the original clearly planned on a series of flicks since they initially signed star Sylvia Kristel to a three-film contract. As in the first movie, she meets a series of characters who lust after her, and she has sex with most of them.

Emmanuelle's only "known" element was the former newwave actor Alain Cuny. His character's name was Mario.
Photographer and "master of erotica" director David Hamilton's with his directorial film debut romantic drama was composed of soft-focus, photographic quality images of sexual awakening. This pseudo-artistic film with a soundtrack by Francis Lai was a coming-of-age story that was based upon Chansons de Bilitis by Pierre Louys. Set in the s, it told about experimentation with lesbianism engaged in by two young girls while on summer holiday:.
