“..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]
4 of 5

“..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]
“..she's gotta have it, von Trier-style..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
4 of 5

“..much of Nymphomaniac shows off Von Trier at his best, even if there are moments of prurience and extreme silliness along the way..”
by Geoffrey Macnab [The Independent]
4 of 5

“..it's amazing how often von Trier's able to re-steer his film, and oddly to deepen it..”
by Tim Robey [Daily Telegraph]
4 of 5

“..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]
Review rate : B+

“..a major work that tries and, to a large extent, succeeds to organically synthesize the world, ideas and filmmaking savvy of von Trier in one sprawling and ambitious cinematic fable..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [indieWIRE]
