Sylvia Kristel: From Emmanuelle to Chabrol / Jeremy Richey

WATCH TRAILER

Synopsis:

A trailblazing figure in film and popular culture, Netherlands native Sylvia Kristel became one of the biggest stars in the world as Emmanuelle in 1974. Alongside her most famous role, directed by Just Jaeckin, a little-known fact is that Sylvia Kristel also appeared in over 20 films between 1973 and 1981 featuring work with some of the greatest directors in film history including Walerian Borowczyk, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Roger Vadim and Claude Chabrol. Now the story of Sylvia’s astonishing career in the ’70s is told in Sylvia Kristel: From Emmanuelle to Chabrol, written by Jeremy Richey. Featured are new interviews with Just Jaeckin, Pim de la Parra, Robert Fraisse, Joe Dallesandro and Francis Lai among others. Sylvia Kristel: From Emmanuelle to Chabrol is a film-by-film guide to one of the most distinctive and uncompromising careers in modern cinema, and a celebration of a most remarkable woman in a fully illustrated coffee-table book written by author Jeremy Richey.

Reviews

“There were about twenty exotic girls. Magnifique! Then I saw a girl all alone, long with big eyes moving and I said ‘That’s Her!’ I don’t know why. Maybe the name ‘Kristel’ meaning pure, naïve, beautiful. Sylvia was so beautiful, so pure. Emmanuelle must be naïve and pure, and Sylvia was exactly that.” – Just Jaeckin

“What struck me most with Sylvia was that she had what photographers & sculptors call ‘perfect bone structure’. Her profiles are especially breathtaking.” – Pim de la Parra

”Sylvia was a beautiful, charming woman that I had the pleasure of meeting and becoming a good friend of hers. I still count myself honored to have met and worked with her.” – Joe Dallesandro

“Richey’s tome is a beauty unto itself… The Blu-ray set is an ideal companion to the book, making four previously very rare Kristel films available in stunning versions.” – Zekefilm

“Sylvia Kristel was amongst the greatest and final figures of the much-missed European Art House of the sixties and seventies.” Review and Interview with Jeremy Richey, author of Sylvia Kristel: From Emmanuelle to Chabrol. – SheilaoMalley

“Actress Sylvia Kristel played in nearly 60 films, but her name has always been connected to the software film Emmanuelle. A new film box set and a coffee table book would change that.”- Volkskrant
