Emmanuelle (Monique Gabrielle) has come to Cannes for the Film Fetival to present her latest film, Love Express, which is sure to produce a scandal. And while in Cannes, Emmanuelle is hounded by paparazzi who strip her totally naked while she's running through the streets, and eventually her only way of escape is jumping onto a speedboat (in the nude) that's just about to leave.

Soon enough, Emmanuelle falls in love with the boat owner Charles, a millionaire, and he with her, but still, she soon decides to leave him and go back to Paris - he however soon manages to catch up with her.

Then Emmanuelle decides to accept an invitation to Benglagistan by the country's ruler Rajid (Yaseen Khan), even though Charles warns her he's a dangerous man. In Benglagistan, Emmanuelle soon realizes that Rajid, despite his kind words, is an autocratic ruler who has a harem with over 50 women ... and Emmanuelle it so become his newest addition. However, with the help of American Eric, she manages to flee from Rajid's palace, and eventually both of them are rescued by Charles via helicopter - when it turns out Eric was actually one of Charles' men sent to Benglagistan to watch over her.

Back with Charles again, Emmanuelle persuades him to fulfill his father's dream and fly one of his father's inventions, the biggest freight plane ever built. Once the plane is airborn though, Charles and Emmanuelle - the only ones onthe plane - decide to make love ... which is not such a good idea because eventually the plane runs into troubles, and eventually they realize it is doomed - but there's only one parachute on board.

Charles forces Emmanuelle to take the parachute and abandon plane while he crashes with her ... or so it seems, because once Emmanuelle once more arrives back home, Charles has already sent her flowers ... though don't ask me how he survived the crash.


From the first film, Emmanuelle, onwards, the Emmanuelle-series gave the world some of the weakest erotic films ever produced, and Emmanuelle 5 is of course no exception - but it poses one big question: What - if anything besides money - drove director Walerian Borowczyk, one of the most imaginative directors of erotic cinema, to direct what is nothing more than a further sequel to an already weak series. If you admire Walerian Borowczyk's work, you will no doubt be disappointed by the film, only in the film-within-the-film sequences does he show what he's capable of doing, the rest is just an impersonal, unimaginative piece of sexploitation, and even the occasional inspired montage leads to nowhere.

... and even apart from that, the script of Emmanuelle 5 is total incoherent crap that starts very weak - with scenes featuring Monique Gabrielle furnished around stock footage from the film festival for additional production value - and seems to find no direction to go.

And above all that, lead actress Monique Gabrielle, despite a great body,  totally lacks charisma and has only very limited acting talents. One talent she has though: She can change from one take to the next from absolutely breathtaking to barely average and back again - how does she do that.

Add to all of this some aerobic-scenes complete with terrible outfits (after all the film was made in the 1980's) and some terrible synth-pop (again, the 1980's) and you got one bad erotic feature that's not even so-bad-it's-good.
