“Emmanuelle”: Remake of the erotic classic with Noémie Merlant

Filming in Hong Kong

Diwan, who was awarded the Golden Lion in Venice in 2021 with the abortion drama “The Event” (originally “L’Evénement”), makes her English-language debut with the “Emmanuelle” film adaptation. Merlant is known from films such as “Portrait of a Young Woman on Fire” or “Tàr”. According to Deadline.com, filming is scheduled to begin in Hong Kong in September. Diwan told the film portal that the story should take place in a luxury hotel in Hong Kong. She wrote the script together with screenwriter Rebecca Zlotowski (“A Light Girl”).

The French erotic film “Emmanuelle” with the Dutch actress Sylvia Kristel was a worldwide hit in 1974. The novel by author Emmanuelle Arsan was the template for the sexual coming-of-age story. It was about the erotic adventures of a young ambassador’s wife who travels to her elderly husband in Thailand and experiences sexual encounters with both sexes there.
