The first of many sequels to the original, X-rated, soft-core pornographic drama Emmanuelle (1974), this follow-up once again stars Sylvia Kristel in the title role of the beautiful, sexually adventurous model. Emmanuelle sails home from Thailand to Hong Kong and her ambassador husband Jean (Umberto Orsini), with whom she has an open marriage. She finds that Jean has invited a handsome American named Christopher (Frederic Lagache) to stay with them, and she tries to seduce the houseguest, who demurs, preferring the company of Asian women. Jean, meanwhile, has been having an affair with Laura (Florence Lafuma). Both Laura and Christopher find the sexual liberation of Jean and Emmanuelle's marriage surprising, but eventually, Emannuelle and Christopher consummate their desire. Later, during a trip to Bali, Jean and his amorous wife sexually initiate Laura's stepdaughter Anna-Maria (Catherine Rivet). Like most of the subsequent films in the Emmanuelle series, Emmanuelle L'Antivierge is highly episodic in form and remarkably well-photographed.
