I love the French erotic film Emmanuelle (1974) starring Sylvia Kristel. When I think of European erotic cinema of the 1970's, this is the first film that comes to mind. It's a beautiful and intoxicating film in my opinion. I'm not just saying that because of the nudity either. :-) Plus I really love the theme song by Pierre Bachelet. Sylvia Kristel might not have been the first woman to come to mind when someone thought of Emmanuelle, but she owns that role. This film dealt with the sexual awakening of Emmanuelle. Sylvia embodied the role so well.
P.S. I want to wish everybody a Happy Valentine's Day! I hope that you and your significant other will have a fun weekend no matter how you choose to celebrate. I had a girlfriend last year at this time, but I'm flying solo this year.
