Nymphomaniac Director's Cut

Lars von Trier, Denmark, 2014

325 min.DK/FeatureDrama

Nymphomaniac is the story of a woman's journey from birth to the age of fifty as told by the main character, the self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe. On a cold winter's evening the old, charming bachelor, Seligman, finds Joe beaten up in an alleyway. He brings her home to his flat where he tends to her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe over the next eight chapters recounts the lushly branched-out and multi-faceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.
