Nymphomaniac is a two-part 2013 European erotic art film written and directed by Lars von Trier. The film is a deep exploration of human sexuality, telling the life story of Joe (played by Stacy Martin and Charlotte Gainsbourg), a nymphomaniac, who recounts her experiences in a series of poignant chapters from her life. The narrative unfolds as Joe shares her stories with Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard), an older bachelor who finds her beaten in an alley and takes her into his home to care for her. The film is known for its explicit content, philosophical musings, and von Trier's distinctive storytelling style, marked by non-linear chronology. The cast also features Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman, Christian Slater, Connie Nielsen, Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe, Jean-Marc Barr, and Mia Goth. Volume I runs 145 minutes and Volume II runs 180 minutes in their uncut versions. Both volumes received generally positive reviews.
