She was based on Marseille and the french always rumor that scene (in which she had a good part as one of the token pixie hippie girl, also supposedly Belmondo) being degeneration town with the swinging and the migrants, some movies explore this kinda scene about banging dirty people on the street, Emmanuelle i think shows this in either the first or second movie, there's also the Black Emmanuelle and Emmanuelle goes to Africa stuff so yeah.
Kinda how the Paris scene was degenerated with politicians and ambassadors/royalty, for example Alain Delon was supposedly a playmaker there and rumor says stuff was filmed at times to blackmail or have dirt on people. He had some controversy regarding that, it didn't fully leave him because one of his bodyguards/security dudes got butchered and thrown in a garbage bin so stuff got serious in the media. There's also the whole can of worms regarding the Trudeau's stuff in their town and when they travelled to Paris.
It's >the french, what could we expect? shame because their girls always have that exquisite innocent touch yet are complete maniacs, kinda how the slav girls always look punkish and aggressive but were supposedly prudes and passives.
