Nymphomaniac: Vol. I

Directed By – Lars von Trier

Screenplay By – Lars von Trier

Cinematography By – Manule Alberto Claro

Starring Charlotte Gainsbourg & Stellan Skarsgård

117 min.

Another bold movie by von Trier, Nymphomaniac explores the psychological obsession of sex through the contrasting lens of lust and academia. Gainsbourg is again brilliant as the sexual deviant, but Skarsgård’s performance is what really stands out to me in Vol. I. He is so perfect as the academic aficionado that without him Gainsbourg’s character is just another slut in the world. Skarsgård and his character Seligman’s observation are what makes Nymphomaniac an art film rather than a soft core porn.

Again von Trier shows how original he is an how no subject is taboo if done with vigor. Nymphomaniac: Vol. I is a movie worth watching.
