By turns profoundly moving, viscerally shocking, intellectually resonant and surprisingly funny, Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac (2013) is a dazzling, daring and devilish work of cinematic art from the world’s foremost directorial mavericks. His bold, brilliant and controversial new film tells the story of Joe, a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, from birth to the age of 50. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of Nymphomaniac this coming Monday (28 April), we have THREE DVD copies of von Trier’s latest to offer out to our regular readership, courtesy once again of the top team at UK distributor Artificial Eye. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
Von Trier’s wildly controversial Nymphomaniac follows the wild and poetic story of a woman’s journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, the self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg). On a cold winter’s evening the old, charming bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård), finds Joe beaten up in an alley. He brings her home to his flat where he cares for her wounds while asking her about her life. Seligman listens intently as Joe over the next eight chapters recounts the lusty, branched-out and multifaceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.
It was following his comments in a press conference for which film at Cannes 2012 that Lars von Trier received persona non gratastatus?
