Amidst pseudonyms for the filmmaking team and attendant questions of who directed what, the final movie for Laura Gemser as journalist Emanuelle tips its hat with her character’s surname of Arsan (as in, the Emmanuelle writer of decades prior). But sensual sequences take a back seat to jailhouse violence, as Emanuelle is wrongfully imprisoned and fights for her life—including against Gemser spouse Gabriele Tinti.

A film by Bruno Mattei
