Emanuelle Around the World / Emanuelle - Perché violenza alle donne? (1977)

3.0 out of 5

This is another orgy of sleaze and sexual depravity directed by the master of such films Joe D'Amato and starring none other than the beautiful Laura Gemser as Emanuelle.

New York journalist, Emanuelle continues her globe trotting fight against violence towards women in our male dominated society. She joins up with her rival, Karin Schubert, to uncover a white slave trading organisation, which plummets her into the twisted world of strange sex cults, rapists, perverts and even corrupt U.S. Senators. But this films key highlight is when Emanuelle travels to India and is introduced to an exotic sex guru played by George Eastman who preaches that sex is more heavenly fulfilling when the urge to orgasm has been denied and mentally controlled. But this Indian Love Guru more than meets his match when he falls for the seductive charms of Emanuelle and fails miserably to practice what he preaches by prematurely ejaculating. A laugh riot!

This is a solid sleaze epic as only D'Amato could deliver. However, the films weakest point lies with its music score composed by Riz Ortolani as it mostly consists of merely two versions of the same title song played over and over again throughout the entire film's duration. One is a vocal version, the other instrumental.

Exploitation fans can rejoice and be happy as this is a fun and entertaining entry in the famous Black Emanuelle series.
