Joe has always known she's been completely obsessed with sex ever since she was a young girl. Her excessive desires would see her meet man after man after man, eventually with little ability to remember who was who. Her fantasies were extreme; she wanted to rebel against the idea of love by allowing herself to be used by men as if she were an object. When she finds herself lying in an alleyway in her fifties having been badly beaten by an as yet unknown perpetrator, she is rescued by a charming older man named Seligman who takes her to his home and offers her a pick-me-up and a bed for the night. It's there she uncovers her entire sexual history, though with none of the joy it brought her as a young woman. Instead, she is despondent and filled with a heart-breaking self-hatred as Seligman tries to offer some wise words of comfort.
'Nymphomaniac: Volume 1' is an explicit drama that was originally part of the five and a half hour uncut version. Oscar nominated Lars von Trier ('Melancholia', 'Dogville', 'Dancer in the Dark', 'Antichrist') wrote and directed the movie which, despite its controversial subject matter and, indeed, filming methods, was extremely well received by critics. 'Volume 1' is set to be theatrically released on March 21st 2014 with 'Volume 2' to follow soon.
