Story


"Nymphomaniac" is the wild and poetic story of a woman's erotic journey from birth to the age of 50 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 8 chapters recounts the lushly branched-out and multi faceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film provides a good-humored yet serious-minded look at sexual self-liberation, thick with references to art, music, religion and literature, even as it pushes the envelope with footage of acts previously relegated to the sphere of pornography..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..it is perplexing, preposterous and utterly fascinating; a false bill of goods in that it's a film about sex that is deliberately unsexy and a long, garrulous story (two volumes, four hours) that largely talks to itself..”
by Xan Brooks [The Guardian]
“..the film has more of the punkish, radical spirit of Von Trier's 'The Idiots' or 'Dogville' than the gloss or contained drama of 'Melancholia' or 'Antichrist'..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]
