Gordon Douglas:Will you stop taking me for an idiot.
Barbara Orst:Leave me alone.
Gordon Douglas:I want you to tell me tell me the truth. That melody you keep on playing reminds you of someone. Tell me the truth... admit you have a lover and that you're crazy about him. You must tell me the truth. I know you have a lover. Admit it. You're just a hypocrite. I know you wrote that sonata for your lover. Don't try to deny it.
Barbara Orst:You're just imagining it. You know it's not that. The sonata is a memory from a forgotten past, Gordon.
Gordon Douglas:So! You admit it. You whore!

Tender and Perverse Emmanuelle (1973)

** (out of 4)

Jess Franco film about the investigation into the death of Emmanuelle (Alice Arno). While I think this was better than the American versions, the film overall is way too slow and boring. Franco, known for sleaze, actually focuses on the mystery aspect and there isn't too much sexuality, although there's a very steamy sex scene between Arno and Lina Romay. The film does contain a wonderful score by Daniel White and Romay, in her second film with Franco, shows that wonderful beauty and presence that would dominate future films.
