No One Under 18 Will Be Admitted


“A ferociously entertaining magnum opus. A shape-shifting, carnal and intellectual thrill ride of a movie.” – Scott Foundas, Variety

“Hang on to your seat back, your Bible, or the hand of a friend. Nymphomaniac ravishes the brain and leaves you begging for more.” – Xan Brooks, Guardian

“The most shocking thing about Nymphomaniac, with its c**k-shot montages and carnal chatter, is how playful and flat-out funny it often is.” – AA Dowd, Onion AV Club


Controversial filmmaker Lars von Trier's much-anticipated motion picture event Nymphomaniac will be released as two full-length feature films. Volume I tells the story of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who is discovered badly beaten in an alley by Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård), an older bachelor who takes her into his home. As he tends to her wounds, she recounts the erotic story of her adolescence and young-adulthood (portrayed in flashback by Stacy Martin). Volume I also stars Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman, Christian Slater, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Connie Nielsen and Udo Kier. Nymphomaniac marks von Trier's follow-up to his critically acclaimed film Melancholia, and is his third consecutive collaboration with Gainsbourg. A groundbreaking filmmaker for more than two decades, von Trier's other films credits include Antichrist, Dogville, Dancer in the Dark and Breaking the Waves. Note: Nymphomaniac contains graphic depictions of sexuality to a degree unprecedented in a mainstream feature film.
