A young engineer (Enzo Bottesini) arrives on a beautiful tropical island. Soon he is seduced by the gracious Laura Gemser (24 years old at the time). Actually there is not much more in this movie. We see the usual bunch of touristic pictures of the bounty island and well photographed pictures of Gemser. This by the way is her debut movie. And the weird thing is, this movie is almost identical to all movies she made later being “Black Emmanuelle”. This is even extremely close to “La Spiaggia del desiderio” , the third Emmanuella negra film.
The English titles confirm this: ” Taboo Island” and “A Beach Called Desire”. The only differences are the higher pace of this movie, the fact it looks like the budget was lower for this one and Emmanuelle is called Janine here. The title may suggest there is a lot of sex in this movie, but there is surprisingly little of it and the scenes are much shorter than to be expected. This movie is quite dull by today’s standards. The only reason you would have for wanting to see it, is Gemser in her first movie (if you are a fan of hers).
