Photo journalist Emanuelle (Laura Gemser) is a free-spirited black American who comes to Kenia for a photoshoot - and is welcomed with open arms by a colony of white residents and especially by her hosts Gianni (Angelo Infanti) and Ann (Karin Schubert). Emanuelle and Gianni soon fall in love with each other. And though Emanuelle shags around a bit - among others with Ann -, she is really determined to get Gianni.

Eventually Gianni gets the keys to a friend's house where he spends a few nights of sins with her.

When she learns about Gianni and Emanuelle, Gloria (Isabelle Marchall), Gianni's mistress gets into a jealous fit, and to calm her down, Gianni makes an insulting remark about Emanuelle over the phone - in a conversation that Emanuelle accidently listens in on. Emanuelle is devastated, and to have her revenge, she starts to really shag around, among others with Gloria, a taxi driver and - in a sort of ritualistic gangbang - with a whole native tribe. It is only when Gianni saves her from drowning that she falls back in love with him, and once again they have sex ... but on the morning after, Emanuelle leaves without even saying good-bye, and before Gianni can even catch up with her, she has a gangbang with a hockey-team on a train.

Gianni wants to persuade Emanuelle to stay in Africa with him, but she only bids him farewell, telling him she will move on to her next job and there meet a new Gianni, and so on ...


Quite obviously (even the title suggests it), Black Emanuelle was an attempt to cash in on the popular Emmanuelle-series starring Silvia Kristel, and the fact that Laura Gemser had a small but memorable (and naked) role in Emmanuelle l'Antivierge seems to only prove the fact. Yet Black Emanuelle is more fun than the films fo the Emmanuelle-series, it's far less pretentious, is better pacing, features less ridiculous dialogue (that's not to say Black Emanuelle features good dialogue though), and Laura Gemser as the title character is both a better actress and a sexier woman than Sylvia Kristel.

All that is not to say that Black Emanuelle is essentially a good film though, it's pretty much like the Emmanuelle-films a mix of sex-scenes and travelogue in between which the narrative gets lost ever so often - which is only half bad because the narrative is tedious anyways.

On the plus side of course, Laura Gemser - whose breakrthough film this was - is simply breathtaking, and she effortlessly manages to carry the rather stupid little movie, plus this led to a series of Black Emanuelle-films directed by Joe D'Amato that were sleazier but also funnier and hotter than this one all starring Laura Gemser as well for which many a trashfilm lover including myself tend to have a soft spot.
