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!

Jess Franco's Emanuelle isn't the same as Massaccesi's..., 24 January 2002
Author: Martin Froberg ( from Stockholm, Sweden

Emanuelle is a successful pianist that is kept imprisoned by her jealous husband. She's murdered and an investigation is engaged. Emanuelle's lover is suspected for the murder and is forced to find the murderer himself. It's a nice twist ending.

This is actually a murder mystery with just a few sex scenes thrown in. As a triangle drama it's quite good with passion and hate, but as an Emanuelle flick it just doesn't deliver. I wouldn't say this is a typical Jess Franco flick. There are some scenes that give him away though, for example the scene at the bar with the red light and strange disco music and of course Lina Romay (Franco's wife) as Greta, Gordon's jealous and manipulating sister. There are some lesbian scenes that are pretty explicit. I'd give this one 6 out of 10. I'd recommend a Massaccesi Emanuelle flick instead, for example `Emanuelle and the White Slavetrade'.
