one is a bit like a mixture of EMANUELLE
IN BANGKOK with EMANUELLE:
ON THE ROAD TO PROSTITUTION. Gabriele Tinti plays a gangster
pimp named Tony Marcone. He's running a racket in Paris that specializes
in whoring out his Asian girls to European clients. When Tina - one
of his high-priced hookers - decides she doesn't want to do it anymore,
he accidentally kills her during a heated fight. With the police on
his trail, Tony flies off to to Hong Kong [presumably to purchase another
girl] but the HK authorities arrest him as he deboards the plane. Paris
detective Philippe Dega is sent to retrieve Tony and bring him back.
After a major 'error in judgment,' Philippe is tricked by Tony and he
escapes into the Hong Kong underground. Philippe is disgraced, ridiculed
by both the HK and French police. But instead of returning to Euro empty-handed,
he seeks help from the murdered girl's sister, a bathhouse whore named
Tazzi, living in Bangkok.
is a major Laura Gemser rarity, often considered a 'lost' movie
and virtually unavailable anywhere until this print surfaced in Germany.
Both Laura and [her real-life husband] Gabriele Tinti are shockingly
good and Sergio Gobbi's narrative shifts seamlessly from action to sleaze
throughout. Laura Gemser made this movie right after Ilias Mylonakas'
QUEEN BITCH and just before D'Amato's BLACK
film in German Language with optional ON/OFF English subtitles;
fullscreen format, (83 minutes), DVD encoded for ALL REGION NTSC WORLD
extras include numerous Laura Gemser trailers
